Prayut losing his grip!

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Notice the emphasis on the economic situation. It's the only thing that will cause the boat to be rocked because it affects everyone.. "It's the economy stupid", end of story.
if you say so, try talking to some thais , sure economy is fkd but its not just that, i see they have just banned music after midnight in pattaya, hoping its only for the princess visit
They are fired up this week about the junta demanding bail money from an activist family for a man that is dead, its starting to boil even the establishment are admitting it now in thai media....
I see richard has started another thread re protests and the reasons, not just economy at all

If you depend on the tourist season to make your living..it is hard to rock the boat and take to the streets.
Hong Kong has awakened the world..
Since FATHER died, Thailand has changed forever.
Thailand has relative peace for decades.
Just look around it and think about the violence and revolution that has occurred in countries near it.
The thing that has allowed Thailand to flourish while millions died around it is the peace that FATHER somehow brought.

Few of the Hk protestors make a dime off of tourism.

HUH:
was king since 1949-
Are you forgetting the protests, (Thammasat University massacre ), the communists fights in the 60's-late 70's, the murders and South Thailand insurgency, road side bombings/ killings in the south for over 5 decades, multiple coups an red shirts/yellow shirt fights in the streets? and on and on....

and it still goes on...
BANGKOK (Reuters) – Two soldiers in Thailand’s south have been charged with the murder of civilians, a military spokesman said on Wednesday, in a rare rebuke in the insurgency-torn region where rights groups have long demanded greater transparency.

The two turned themselves in on Dec. 20 and are now out on bail, Internal Security Operations Command spokesman Pramote Prom-in said. He gave no details about the victims.

Nothing really changes here, Thailand is a survivor..

Thailand has relative peace for decades. ? I tend to think that Thailand is ruled by the gun not by the ballot box. Between 2008 and 2014, 127 people were reported killed and around 3,500 injured in the political clashes. Since 1932 the country has had 20 charters and constitutions, 12 coups d’état, and 34 years of military rule.
