  • Future Forward boss dodged question...

It happened last Friday. Future Forward Party leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, in his enthusiasm to get down to the nitty-gritty of the troubles plaguing Phuket fishermen, allowed some local villagers to voice their opinions.

One local supporter, picked out by Thanathorn, spoke up.
“The Future Forward Party has now joined the opposition. I wonder whether you will stop your party members from dragging the institution [the monarchy] into involvement [in politics], since up till now we have seen this happening all the time. [We] want Future Forward to adjust the party’s attitude. I respect you, respect everybody – it’s just that all of us must respect the institution as well.”
According to the news report available at the Thai Post website, Thanathorn promised he would respond to the comment later on – but never did.
