Political spankings - where to draw the line

Re: "Expats have no right to 'spank' the Shinawatras", Letters, April 8.

Mr Pola is at it again. So, foreigners should not criticise Yingluck or Thaksin! They also shouldn't pay taxes, spend money, be harassed by tourist police or be subjected to double pricing.

Even though I use my Christian name, I am Thai. My grandfather was born here and became Thai, My father was Thai, my wife and children are Thai.

So does that mean I am allowed to spank Thaksin and Yingluck?

Please let me know so that I can make sure not to wash my hands beforehand.
