Thaksin as ghost

6 04 2016

It seems that The Dictator considers Thaksin Shinawatra an evil and ghostly spirit that haunts the current military dictatorship. The Bangkok Post has published a photo of General Prayuth Chan-ocha, using garlic to drive out Thaksin: “This is for driving out the ghost who has fled abroad.” It seems that the red bowl saga has again bent the general out of shape.

It is noticeable that everything the junta does is a “battle” with the “ghost,” not least the complete restructuring of the political system and the intent to maintain military political supremacy.
