Ref: "Academics should go back to their ivory towers", Letter, yesterday.
Songdej Praditsmanont wrote that the four points espoused by the Network of Two Yes-es and Two Nos are common sense. Well the group is saying “yes” to an election which I agree is common sense, but it is common sense that seems to be missing for many people. From my understanding the proposed People’s Council is not an elected body and there is no time limit on their tenure.
Songdej also wanted the 60 members of the network to stay away from any reform committee even though their four standpoints are all common sense and it is common sense that Thailand sorely needs at this point.
