Tony’s Toxic Thai Trip

Much to SamCam’s distress, Dave was forced cancel his Christmas holiday to Thailand in 2010. He was meant to have been the guest of fellow old Etonian, and then Prime Minister, Abhisit Vejjajiva. However the little matter of a coup d’etat and the shooting of dozens of peace protesters made the trip a little tricky. Since July, Abhisit has been in opposition and is under investigation by the Thai Department of Special Investigations for over ninety deaths. That’s wasn’t enough to put one British leader off from pressing the flesh yesterday though:

Our Tone always pops up in the most interesting of places. Where next… Syria?

          Yeah I remember all those Labour revolts, mass defections and resignations during the Bliar ye@rs by all the “re@l socialists”.

          Except for one minor detail, they never happened.

          For 95% of the time Labour were entirely happy with the lying fraud. Now of course he was never “one of us comrade”.
          Do you ever wonder why lying socialists and lying socialism are so despised?

            Yes it’s amazing isn’t it….cast your mind back to 1997…wasn’t the BBC(and some in the press) lauding him to the rafters as the”Straight Sorta Guy” dynamic young leader who single-handedly saved the Monarchy, brought peace to N Ireland freed Kosovo and gave the leadership that this country needed to make it respected throughout the World >We were told that he’d change British Society(well he did that and no mistake).

            But then again the BBC and certain sections of the press also of course thought Brown was a very good Chancellor…

      That’s an excellent question, which our cretinous MPs would do well to answer, if they can spare the time between expense-fiddling and eating in silver-service HoC restaurants at our expense.

      Another excellent question: why is a suspected terrorist, an avowed enemy of Britain and its allies, a foreigner who hates us and who has contributed nothing to our society allowed to claim £800 each week in benefits? Perhaps if Camoron can stop hugging hoodies or huskies or planning his £32billion HS2 railway/white elephant for 5 minutes, he could answer the question.

      Despite his modest wealth, Abhisit is not a capitalist!

      Before starting his career in politics, he was a guest speaker at the prestigious Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy. Not for a single day in his life has he worked for a capitalist company. And he didn’t manage the kingdom as a personal company like the convicted thief Thaksin Shinawatra did.

      Any wealth that Abhisit has reported is from his wife and his parents. Both of his parents are successful England-educated physicians and his father was appointed a Director of Charoen Pokphand, one of Thailand’s most successful corporations. He received pocket money from them, but he is a follower of King Bhumibol the Great’s Sufficiency Economy Theory, and is a humble and simple man.

    Abhisit Vejjajiva is a modern Thai liberal who graduated from Cambridge and came from a long line of loyal servants to the Chakri dynasty. Abhisit had democratic ambitions for Thailand, and is the leader of the Democrat Party, Thailand’s oldest and most respected political party. Abhisit is very well respected among leaders of civilized democracies like England.

    If it wasn’t for the Red Shirt mobs who tried to violently overthrow the universally revered King Bhumibol the Great, Abhisit was well on the way to building a democratic Thailand under the wise royal vision. The Red Shirts were NOT “peace protesters” – there are photos of them carrying dangerous weapons. They even tried to march to Siriraj Hospital where the King is staying and burn it down!

    The Department for Special Investigation is a Gestapo created by the convicted-tyrant Thaksin Shinawatra to hound his political enemies. The 90 Red Shirts who died in 2010 were assassinated by Red Shirt leaders to make Abhisit’s government look bad, give the Red Shirts an excuse to overthrow the monarchy, and establish a Shinawatra dynasty. But the dead shouldn’t be blamed: they were mostly uneducated farmers and taxi drivers who were paid 300 baht a day by Thaksin to protest… and they ended up being sacrificed like prawns.

    Thailand is a modern country and should not be lumped in the same category as Syria, and Abhisit Vejjajiva is one of the greatest Prime Ministers Thailand has ever had. Blame Thaksin.

    ”Abhisit Vejjajiva is one of the greatest Prime Ministers Thailand has ever had. ”

    When was it that he was elected by the Thai people to become the Prime Minister of this ”democratic Thailand” that Abhisit was well on the way to building? I can’t seem to find any evidence of him ever winning an election.

    ”The Red Shirts were NOT “peace protesters” – there are photos of them carrying dangerous weapons.” ……..True. There were some protestors who were armed and were fighting back against the military but considering what they were up against, even if it cannot be condoned, it is perhaps understandable. The events of 2009 when the military opened fire on demonstrators had a lot to do with the extremes that people were willing to go to in 2010. The absence of pictures showing these hordes of armed protestors tells it’s own story unless you deem hand clappers, bamboo and sling shots amongst these dangerous weapons.

    ”They even tried to march to Siriraj Hospital where the King is staying and burn it down!”………..When did this event take place? As you well know, this event did not happen. Let’s keep this real.

    ”The 90 Red Shirts who died in 2010 were assassinated by Red Shirt leaders to make Abhisit’s government look bad”…….Come on! I suppose you also believe the Suthep line that the protestors were only killed because they were ”running into bullets” is also true? There is more than enough evidence that shows that the military were the cause of the majority of the killings that took place in 2010. You can never rule out the possibility that there were other factors involved too but that is the same for any situation that is going on around the world at the moment.

    ”they were mostly uneducated farmers and taxi drivers who were paid 300 baht a day by Thaksin to protest…”……….Again not true. As with the previous protestors who closed the airport and took over Government house, you had a wide cross-section of all parts of Thai society present at the demonstration.

    Many people who had demonstrated against Thaksin were also demonstrating against the fact that a military coup was carried out to get him out instead of going through the democratic process that many Thai’s had held sacred since 1992.

    One of the interesting observations during the demonstration at Rachaprasong was watching the dynamics of the crowd change in the evenings from about 5pm when people would arrive after finishing work and settle down for the night outside Central World and stay there until about 6am when they would return home to get on with their normal working day. These people were local business owners, teachers, office workers, retailers etc. To try and portray the people there as sheep who did not understand what they were doing shows your total lack of understanding of why people were there and what they were there for.

    ”sacrificed like prawns”…….”Abhisit Vejjajiva is one of the greatest Prime Ministers Thailand has ever had”……………….I think both these comments speak for themselves.

    ”Blame Thaksin”……………While I will never be his biggest fan, he sure seems to be getting blamed for a hell of a lot of things that are wrong in Thailand at the moment :-)
