    » Now the Election Commission and the National Council for Peace and Order have promised to hold the general election on Feb 24 next year, should we remain hopeful that the move will eventually lead Thailand to transition into a more democratic state? The answer largely depends on our expectations of the outcome, as well as the form of democracy that we want -- and we can look southeasterly to Cambodia, or westerly to Myanmar to get a rough idea of what Thailand's new beginning may be like.

    When values plummet

    News, Postbag, Published on 02/03/2018

I suppose that the wealthy and well-connected were getting nervous to see their position and privileges being whittled away and threatened by a government supported by "red buffaloes" from the North, and getting afraid of no longer being first in the queue to receive the fruits of corruption.
