The Pheu Thai Party has vowed it will ignore any judgment rendered by the Constitution Court on the draft charter amendment dealing with the structure of the Senate (BP, Nov 19). 

This declaration blatantly violates the concept of checks and balances in a democratic system. Worse, it just could prove to be the spark needed to ignite anarchy and maybe even civil war as the red shirts have gathered this week due to Pheu Thai's (and Thaksin Shinawatra's) intransigence.

We remember the violence of 2010. Thaksin could have told the red-shirt mob to disperse before the army came to clear it out (and thereby save many lives).
