BBC Profile of Thaksin

With the passage of the constitutional referendum in Thailand Sunday as well as Manchester City’s big win over Manchester United, there has been plenty of interesting writing and commentary about Thaksin, his political future, and how his owning a football club fits in over the last few days. Later in the week, we’ll attempt a round-up of the best and most pertinent articles.

Go to minute 33 of the linked clip to see the report.
