'Reform' has more to do with Thaksin than corruption

Let's stop lying to ourselves. The reform we want has nothing to do with removing corruption and ensuring fair election. It is has every thing to do with Thaksin. We want to make sure he is dead from politics (kind of like conspiring to ban Usain Bolt from dashing competition).

But after we meticulously draw up rules and regulations and say "That ought to do it! Now we can have an election" and Thaksin's cronies are back again, what are we going to do?

Will there be PDRC II: Kamnan Returns, or Reform: The Final Episode? I think so. They are coming at the theatre near you.
