    In the UK the Queen holds no power, in Thailand Rama 10 face is everywhere and I know from my Thai friends that they all hate him. I know enough Thai to uderstand what they are saying about Tu and the king in the protests. Hopefully the Thai people will get democracy and what they want. And open the borders I need to come back to Thailand.

    its not a healthy action among externally-insinuated pro democracy politicians to herd the thai youth along the dirty course of their political interests.

    Jade is trying so hard to defend the King and try to point his finger to the Junta he served instead.

    Why did Al Jazeera interview this lady (BO)? She is completely supporting Thanksin's party and she is very political and her ex-boyfriend who was politician in Thanksin's party is also facing Jail due to his corruption. Excepted Dr. Pavin, he is a real man on this protest and he consisted that the monarchy must be reformed and I support him 100% but BO who just uses this opportunity to take the government down for her own benefit. I would say that many Thais on the street are NOT BO's supporters. She just uses this situation for her own advantages.

    OMG I've learned just now that Nuttaa is just an activist who "สู้ไป กราบไป" (Fighting and prostrating), a strategy adopted by the Pheu Thai Party since the beginning of time. No wonder she's shacking up with that fuddy-duddy from that party. I've completely lost my respect for this woman.

    The Thai monarch definitely needs reforming. However I can see similarities with the Hong Kong protests. Current Thai Government is pro China, they refuse to ditch Huawei and a few days after a visit by the US army chief James McConville, the Bangkok Post reported on 9/7/2020 that the Thai army chief Gen Apirat said ‘ No US base in Thailand ‘. Someone is stirring up the pro democracy/anti government movement.

    Jade is scared of being arrested to tell the truth or giving his honest opinion, unless he is a royalist. .

    คนเหมือนกัน เกิดมาก็ตายเหมือนกัน เดินสองเท้าเท่ากัน ทำไมจึงต้องมาหมอบคลาน
    เหมือนสัตว์ เจ๊อุบลรัตน์ แกก็ทำให้เห็นเป็นตัวอย่างแล้ว เสี่ยหอยว่าไง เมื่อไหร่จะเลิกบ้าอำนาจ
    ก้าวลงมาจากหน้ากากเทวราชาชั่ว ลงมาเดินมาคุยกับคนธรรมดาโดยที่ไม่ต้องให้คนหมอบ
    กราบยกมือไหว้คุยด้วยตลอดเวลา มีสภาพเหมือนทาสหรือขี้ข้าคุยกับเจ้านาย เสี่ยหอยทำได้ไหมเสี่ย
