Re: "Compromise the only light in this dark tunnel", Letters, February 27.
Roren Stowell’s letter, which advocates discussions and compromise, sounds good, but won’t work unless Thailand brings in real outsiders, like Scandinavians, to try and fix the political impasse. People here are too easily influenced into joining one side or the other. Independent thinking is a rarity. As much as I dislike the caretaker government, I concede it won the vote, so it has the democratic right to go on governing – though its efforts thus far have been rather abysmal.
Hopefully, the next election cycle will bring in some decent leaders.
