I guess they locked CAPO out instead. Another failed to be recorded.

This Surapong has not wakened up yet. He is really inviting trouble, which shall come to him anytime soon.

CAPO and the snake that plays the mouthpiece are clearly reflecting the increasing fear of the Dubai sand-lizard and his proxy niece. Shame that Surapong hasn't got enough between his ears to realize that every time he makes another of these ridiculous statements/rules it does nothing more than to bring more people out onto the streets to reject him. Time for this vile pile of pigs to wake up to the fact that the people fear them no more, and their time with their snouts in the trough has come to an end.

...ummmm, too late! from iPhone application.

Somchai, get below the surface and see what is really going on. The leaders of this movement are all about an illegal power grab. Nothing else. You and many others are being led by the nose. Wake up!

Looks like CAPO got caught napping again ... good on the PDRC for starting a little early I am sure even Surapong thinks no one listens to him ...

Can imagine Thaksins droids are fully regretting pushing that amnesty bill, they could well lose their cash cows....opps, I mean 'caretaker' ministries.
Discussion 8 : 12/01/2014 at 11:00 PM
it's actually called law enforcement - unless one is color blinded by hatred!
Discussion 9 : 12/01/2014 at 10:56 PM
Stupid moves, guaranteed to provoke a response. If they had stepped back and let it go then it might have petered out. This is what happens when you get a brains trust consisting of Mr No Reverse Gear, Mr Let Me Show I Am The Man and Ms I Know Nothing all together as happened today with the Capo meeting.

CAPO ? Was that not that club of people who denies all and spread lies, lies and lies ? I think it's 5 for 12 for them and time to move out. I did hear Dubai seems to be nice in this time of the year.
Discussion 11 : 12/01/2014 at 10:35 PM
That is normal traffic where I am.
Discussion 12 : 12/01/2014 at 10:33 PM
So after 2 months of doing nothing, we are supposed to think that something will happen about a few trucks driving on a few roads? And it not like there are other roads they can drive on to get to their destination lol #FAIL
Discussion 13 : 12/01/2014 at 10:20 PM
Capo are a little late as stages, etc have already been setup. Anyhow do they think the protestors will listen?
Discussion 14 : 12/01/2014 at 10:09 PM
Too little, too late.
Discussion 15 : 12/01/2014 at 10:05 PM
Interesting. I don't remember any similar vehicle ban when the Reds were on the rampage in 2010. I seem to recall they brought in petrol tankers and threatened to set them on fire - in the middle of Bangkok!
Discussion 16 : 12/01/2014 at 10:01 PM
Very good. But how are they going to impose it? By a massive police (and, if necessary, army) effort, I hope.
Discussion 17 : 12/01/2014 at 09:53 PM
Why not mention the fact that they are also causing unnecessary congestion well outside the capital on inbound lanes of major traffic arteries? CAPO and the idiots at PT are already making this situation worse then it needs to be. Total ignorance is at the wheel here.
Discussion 18 : 12/01/2014 at 09:52 PM
Too little too late. The Yingluck administration is obviously in over its head. If only governance were as easy as corruption.
Discussion 19 : 12/01/2014 at 09:48 PM
Lol. Well looks like already the order has been completely ignored - just another case of CAPO shredding its own credibility and authority by making unrealistic "dictates." Keep up the great work Surapong!
Discussion 20 : 12/01/2014 at 09:43 PM
For red-shirt protests, I have seen pictures where the equipment is brought in using police trucks. The sooner this crowd get booted out, the sooner Thailand can have another chance at coming out of the third world.

more acts of desperation. the days of the fugitive and his little sister are counted ...
