People are afraid of Thaksin and his cronies giving more gifts like the rise scam to the people to vote for him. Some poor people will be happy to get some extra money and Thaksin or one of his cronies will be happy to be reelected again. But the rest of Thailand has to pay the bill and as the saying goes: Thaksin thinks – Thailand sinks.

Quit arguing like children. The majority of the people want reform. The society is rife with corruption, graft and nepotism. There is no transparency in any major program (rice pledging, one tablet, first car, etc.) and we have a right to know what is being done with our money. The major infrastructure bills are both under legal scrutiny (2 trillion and water mgmt) as are 350+ MPs. The PTP has promised reform but has not acted and now they say re-elect us and we will deal with it. There are no winners here but the people will end up being the biggest losers no matter what happens.

If the police would only use 10% of that manpower to hunt down the infamous criminal fugitive then we wouldn’t be in this situation. Jail Thaksin and things can only get better.

By continuing to ignore the voice of the people, you continue to fuel the fires of the protest. Enough with the lame excuses about rigged elections, being voted in via corruption is not something to brag about!

If the majority of people in Thailand want YS to leave, then why doesn't this same majority just go vote her out, that sounds the most simple way to me. Come on majority go to polls and vote her out Feb.2 then Suthip can become PM, what are you afraid of?

You need to look at facts... Less than 50% voted for PTP last election... How does that make the majority?
Discussion 11 : 06/01/2014 at 04:44 PM
Nui ........No they don't all want Ms. Y to leave, and you know it...So why do you say that???? ...The fact that the Fascist, anti-Democracy crowd want to avoid an election so bad proves my point, not that this is necessary.......Plaintruth...The election will ask the whole population, and will prove Rahal correct...And you know this as well.

40 companies of police & troops to be deployed. 12 companies of police & 2 of troops were deployed today for YS visit to the airport. Does one person need that much protection?

Yes, they all want Yingluck - to leave. If you would live in Thailand, you would understand.
Discussion 14 : 06/01/2014 at 04:29 PM
