Crown and government

21 11 2009

PPT readers may find a current debate in Britain of some interest. The Financial Times (18 November 2009: “Crown dethroned in Whitehall”) discusses changes proposed that even provokes the use of the term “lese majeste” and cites conservative royalists spluttering and fuming over change. The Daily Express (19 November 2009: “Labour Dethrone Queen in Bill”) has a shorter article although the comments by readers are worth perusal.

Could such a debate be considered in Thailand?

Update: Readers will also be interested in an article at the Malaysian blog The Nut Graph (23 November 2009: “Questioning the monarchy”) raising questions about transparency and lese majeste.
