Democracy is just a word

Re: "Second grenade attack", Politics, January 20.

The democratic prime minister, who is responsible for all of the electorate, stands by while people are being attacked by grenades without offering one word of comfort, not even a tear or any demand that justice be done.

Perhaps this is even-handedness, since her government also denied justice for red-shirt supporters by attempting to introduce an amnesty bill. Will the red shirts remember that when it comes time to vote? Since there are no opposition candidates, who can they vote for?
