Phuket “car mob” protest demands the removal of PM, calls for mRNA vaccines

How times have changed. When I was in Patong, it was Suthep's yellow shirt mob who held sway. Seizing the airport, sweeping all opposed to a coup out of the way and engaging in strong arm tactics. Anyone who  objected was assumed to be a  "redshirt". Foreigners who sympathized were called communists. The protesters are not the old redshirt north eastern migrant workers, but are the children of locals, locals who had probably turned out in 2004 to support the yellow shirts.  Now that the locals have experienced some the insecurity and hardship, they are less willing to support the military rule. 

 IMO, it is a waste of their time to protest like this, Instead, they should go home and  hold their parents and older relatives who supported the  original coup, responsible. Remind them every day that what is happening now is their responsibility. Tell their parents and elders to go and fix the mess they supported, encouraged, allowed.

The Army is there to protect the wealthy elites of Thai society including the you-know-what (that which cannot be criticized). The people with all that money and power are not going to step aside peacefully. Unfortunately force will be required to change Thai society.

Hundreds of cars and motorcycles drove through Phuket in a so-called “car mob” rally, calling for the resignation of PM Prayut Chan-o-cha

This is all fine & well & I agree he has to go but...............

The time for this was long ago say 2016-2017

Instead I believe a lot of the hype is coming from He/himself as he now wants out.

His wallet if full enough for many generations to come & the public trough is near empty nothing more for him to take

Now tough real world problems are here & he knows he has not the skills so would love to use any excuse to step down.

As he has already said...You want me to leave? I can!

Because again his wallet if filled & he wants out

 

BUT>>>>>>>>>>> What do you think happens next? Thailand has a great government full of wisdom?

Even if that Wisdom existed how will it be elected?

How will politicians campaign during Covid?

How will elections occur during Covid??

 

NO...This is just what they want...One General...falsely elected to PM steps down

Anarchy starts as no government in place & no elections possible

Guess what comes next?

Second Verse Same as the first but this time they will not call it a coup like previous 13 coups....as no government exists to overthrow

Instead they/another General will waltz right in with same excuse as last time...Thailand needs stability

Feel bound to say fair play to Thaiger for this article. Seems much more  direct, with less pulled punches, than most of what is making it online as news re Thailand, both here and elsewhere.

?

And I think in general, this forum seems to be far more straight forward, far less cowardly, and far less influenced by toxic politics, than their counterpart, Thaivisa, which is overrun by timid, dictatorial, senseless, and emasculated moderators. And the same can be said about the media here. So, kudos to Thaiger.

Usually they simply outlive them, then get into positions of power themselves, with expanding  opportunity for graft  and become just as corrupted. 

Sorry, but I do not share your pessimism about the youth here. I have met many, who are smart, passionate about their country (not just running around with a sense of blind patriotism), and want a better future for their nation. Thanathorn is a good example of that. He would make a great leader, if the crony senators could be removed, or exiled. 

I believe the future is in the hands of the youth, and the only way forward, is with their guidance and intelligence. Out with the old, corrupt, toxic goombahs. In with the youth.

Victory to the youth of Thailand! May they prevail, against the dinosaurs.

Agree with you Holycow the junta bullied there way into power and they have made many Enemies. They will have to watch there backs if ever there back in Civvy street, so there not likely to move out of there security zone. This is also a government who will rig the voting system and cheat there People, and no only too full well they and there family members will have to go into Exile, so again there not likely to go easily. If only the one who is there boss understood what there doing to his people he should remove this Government, but like the PM and the other leaders he is not listening to what he is being told.

'bozos'  For some reason that made me think of 'Bedtime For Bonzo' (1951) with Ronald Reagan, and
"the central character, psychology professor Peter Boyd, trying to teach human morals to a chimpanzee"

I only remember the name of the film because the UK TV Spitting Image constantly took the p!ss out of Reagan while he was president. They kept mentioning that film.

I don't know why I remember it but probably because it was a fun comedy. Made way before I was born.

The monkey even went to college in #2. If he was Thai he would make an excellent PM.

Is that Tawnny kittain.

RIP.... One of the sexiest women of the 1980's. It's hard to believe she died a few week's ago...so sad. She left her identity etched on those WS music videos for eternity. An era that Thailand will NEVER EVER EXPERIENCE or indeed understand... maybe why Whitesnake never played Bangkok!!

This all happened due to sheer stupidity and stunning greed. Thailand is really going into a world of hurt now. Tourism will not recover for years and domestic tourism just died. Millions of jobs lost.

The people will not tolerate these goons much longer. My theory is that the army brass already knows this, and are now forming an escape plan. Hopefully into exile, but far better, into prison. They can fight a few tens of thousands. They cannot possibly beat many millions. And that is what we will see when this army created debacle is over with.

Prayuth has zero credibility, on any level. He is stunningly incompetent, and has long overstayed his welcome. And now, he has failed the nation miserably with this second wave, which could have easily been avoided, had some precautions been taken by locking down Samut Sakhon province immediately, and rooting out his bad apple immigration guys, on the border. There is no saying the extent of the corruption in this administration, but the army is not exactly known for integrity.

Well, one thing is for certain. And if it was not apparent before Covid, it sure is now. They have a nearly non existent concern for the well being of the masses here, who have been affected negatively by Covid, the economic shutdown and the utter, long term collapse of the Tourism industry. 

 

The entire nation should be heaping criticism on this utter failure of a PM. He is literally destroying his nation, by the day. Anything, absolutely anything that can be done to limit the power of the army, and the toxic and corrupt senators they appointed, is a good thing for the nation. The dinosaurs must be made extinct. And the youth must be allowed representation or control. Total control, if possible. They are the only ones who can move this nation forward, and stop the heinous and regressive  army.

Well you need to consider who exactly put them there and keeps them there also as they are part of the same problem of not wanting the youth and others to disturb their depraved and corrupt lifestyles that they think they are entitled to.
