Postbag: None of our business

- +

Not only do I agree with Mr P (PostBag, Jan 9) and Brian Stocks (PostBag, Jan 10) that it would be wrong for expats to involve themselves in anti-government rallies, but I think it's outrageous for PostBag writers to be supporting insurrection in this country. 

If regular PostBag contributor Richard Bowler, for example. doesn't recognise the legitimacy of the Yingluck Shinawatra government, then how can he regard his visa (which I assume he has) as being legitimate? How can a visa be more legitimate than the government which gave it to you?

These hypocrites know fully well that demonstrators would never get away with attempting to shutdown a major city in the US or the UK. (And don't tell me that US presidents and British prime ministers haven't done things far worse than Yingluck.) In my opinion these writers are abusing their privileges and are giving the rest of us a very bad name.
