Re: “The key to understanding Thai politics”, Have Your Say, yesterday.



Poor old Vint Chavala is going around in circles with his explanation of “good Thais”. He now suggests they are “law-respecting Thais” – which surely would not include military leaders who overthrow the elected government and the Constitution, then formulate a new one more likely to help them maintain power. It’s a tough job making excuses for people who constantly act outside of the law but who you so admire, that after a massacre that deeply upset you, you continue to support them.
