Will they go home?

8 11 2013

Has the Puea Thai Party hierarchy’s foolish attempt to promote a Thaksin Shinawatra-focused amnesty bill unleashed a political fire storm that will be impossible to contain?

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra may have withdrawn all the bills, but the once-struggling opposition has risen and the PAD-like types have taken control of the movement that the Democrat Party thought it was leading, with protests in several key areas of Bangkok.

With the Preah Vihear decision coming up, the opposition will be unlikely to want to let the crowds disperse in the hope that the outcome of the World Court case will be construed as negative for Thailand. Such a decision would be seen as cause for a nationalist rising that would sound the death knell for the Yingluck government.

Red shirts will be unlikely to allow yet another elected government to be given the chop.

Interesting times ahead. Watch this space.
