Did something happen before the bike event?

12 12 2018

Recently we posted a comment about Andrew MacGregor Marshal’s Facebook page, where he’d spent considerable effort linking to social media posts complaining about delays, road closures, river closures and more associated with the king’s recent cycle around Bangkok. He also wrote that the king showed up several hours late. We said we hadn’t seen that material reported elsewhere, but understood that Thailand’s media fears dire consequences if they do.

At that time, we’d noticed a comment on AMM’s post saying something odd had happened. It seems AMM investigated further, and while nothing has appeared in the Thai media, there was a security breach. And, no, the king didn’t get shot in the bum again.

Clicking the next link takes the reader to a copy of the AMM’s Facebook post, probably illegal in Thailand, and refers to a retired soldier rushing towards the king.
