    #1: The red shirts will always treat him like a living god, no matter what he does.

    I think the focus of the question is wrong.

    I think the bigger problem is not how many reports are published but the way they are written by the publishers in order to support, suppress and influence peoples opinions on what is being written.

    "Former Thai pm's" ... is that plural or possessive?

    'Thaksin thinks;PTP act'. Remember ! He thinks he can decide policy and the Cabinet and not be criticized. Of course he should be scrutinized. The more exposure, the more his self serving lies, contradictions and attempts to get himself whitewashed are revealed.

    No doubt when things go horrendously wrong he will declare he was not responsible.

    Please people! There really is only one "modern Thai PM" who is in the press often:
    any guesses?

  • Discussion 4 : 04 Aug 2012 at 14.564

    ravbrat there is only one FPM my comment culd possibly be about and that is of course The one in far places. Read it again!

    It’s a question of how relevant the reported information is. If i.e. a former PM goes privately on holiday or if he buys a pair of shoes: who cares? But if a former PM acts like he is the current PM then of course this is relevant. It is also relevant if a former PM is doing any business in the name of Thailand even if he is officially not involved in Thai politics.
    And in case of Thaksin: Better report whatever he does, because he wants to be public figure #1. If the media would not report about him then he would just do something else which asks for more attention and if even that is not reported he would do just something more...
    Better report his small steps before he gets too desperate. Remember 2010: He wanted the attention of the whole world and he did not stop before he got it!

    Disc 1, does not clarify which FPM he refers to so his reply is as ambiguous as the question.

    Being referred to as FPM is a correct application of the title same as former President or former VP and is part of their title (opinions aside) until they achieve a higher ranking position.

    Personally, I will be very-very happy when some politicians have the word "former" added to their title.

    I voted no because I think that the more publicity he gets the more he contradicts himself and people see how rediculous he is the more the red shirts will be able to see how self centred and irrelevent he is.
