Tell all sides of the story

Re: "Farewell to the rule of law", Letters, December 28

Manorot Mahappark, when you want to tell a story you cannot start in the middle as you and many other letter writers do in these days - and thereby show bias. You have to start at the beginning - or the beginning has to be told at least at one point to give meaning to the story. But many of you fail to do so, and yet are good at demonising Suthep Thaugsuban and the demonstrators.

Here is the beginning: The unrest began and the demonstrations was triggered by Yingluck and her supporters who were unfair, undemocratic and unlawful with the amnesty bill and the change of the Senate. That story needs to be told because it is worse when democratically elected politicians are unfair, undemocratic and unlawful.

It seems to be a habit for the Shinawatra-clan to seek court approval on everything, but everytime the ruling is against them, it is declared as politically motivated.

Therefore, those who start in the middle of a story are telling more fairytales than the real story.
