More from Thailand–An Entertaining Critique of Thaksin’s Thai Critics

The Nation on Sunday published a “profile” of Thaksin that was less than flattering and implied that soon this “fugitive from justice” would run out of places to hide. The Thai blog “Thailand Jumped the Shark” has provided a point-by-point deconstruction of the article. There is a fair amount of Manchester City content in the pieces, including discussion of the (preposterous) claim that the recent 2-0 defeat to Charleoi in a preseason friendly was a massive blow to the egos of Thaksin Shinawatra and Sven Goran Eriksson.

All in all, an entertaining riposte but also a good illustration of the polarized nature of Thai politics when it comes to Thaksin.
