Thaksin would never let it happen

Talk of separatism certainly makes good headlines and gets the nation in a frenzy. But is this just the usual frustrated fighting talk of a few ill-informed minor protagonists.

The simple answer to these radically minded reds is to consult their boss in Dubai. Hell will freeze over before he agrees to settle for the poorer half of the country. Without a port, oil refinery, industry and all the capital in Bangkok, Thaksin would rather play golf in Montenegro.
