Will Yingluck dare go against her brother?

For Prime Minister Yingluck to take strong action against her brother, she would have to go against our cultural ethos of protecting the family.

More in keeping with Thai ways would be to politely listen to her brother, smile and nod appropriately - then do what she wants to do. And hopefully, that would be what is best for the country. But for her to do this successfully, she would need the backing of her party.

Are "our" Pheu Thai representatives loyal enough to mother Thailand to cease grovelling to one man and his money?
