Buffalohair: Thaksin A Man without a Country

Thaksin A Man without a Country

The convicted criminal ex Prime Minister of Thailand, Thaksin Shinawatra and his bride Pojaman, had their visa's revoked by the UK today according to The Nation. Here is a reprint of the notice given airlines;

"Dear All,

The United Kingdom Border Agency has revoked the UK visas held by the following Thai nations:

Thaksin Shinawatra. Thai Passport Number D215863

Potjaman Shinawatra. Thai Passport Number D206635

The UK visas contained in the passports of the individuals listed above are no longer valid for travel.

Airlines are advised not to carry these passengers to the UK"

*** end *****

Well I'll bet there is a ball club in Jolly Ole England that will be up for sale soon since ole Thaksin will not be allowed to play anymore. Convicted of corruption Thaksin was of the mind he was immune to Thai justice and the rule of law. To bad so sad for this friend of dictator Than Shwe of Burma and I'll wager his cronies will find a similar fate in the future. Sadly Thaksin is cronies with American corporations as well and like I've said in the past, "Birds of a feather flock together" and if we followed the money it would lead to the good ole USA as well.

Though Thailand is in the midst of cleansing corruption within their political arena there is still a level of decency that is very admirable. I am envious since our government condones the conduct Thaksin was convicted of. Violations of their sacred constitution is not tolerated since the populous still has a voice in their government unlike the US where we are dictated to, it would appear. The people of Thailand are very adamant about their constitution and American's should take notes in how democracy works.

Thaksin and Somak exercised what was called by People's Alliance for Democracy "Western Style Democracy that promoted corruption" Yup you heard right, the whole mess was over how Thaksin and Somak tried to copy our politicians by ignoring the Thai Constitution. Sadly for these thugs the Thai people did not buy into it one bit. Thaksin was convicted and tried to hide in the UK. Somak will serve 2 years in the joint for his sins and the current PM, Somchai Wongsawhat who is Thaksin's brother-in-law, is under close scrutiny.

But the struggle to maintain democracy has not been an easy journey since the People Power Party, Thaksins political party, clashed with People's Alliance for Democracy with deadly results. Democracy has always been a struggle to maintain and vigilance by the voting public has been the only way to keep corruption at bay. America used to be vigilant and guarded democracy with a passion but now we are complacent and

Somchai does not appear to be any different from what I've researched on him. Well with Thaksin as a brother-in-law it does not take a Rhodes Scholar to figure out that nuts don't fall far from the tree. And with this axiom it should be obvious who the other corrupt players are as they come to Thaksins aid. People should take note who Thaksin's cronies are world wide. Maybe they will see how far the cancer of corruption and greed has traveled.

Your Devil's Advocate
