The Argument, in Complete Form

As promised, I’ve compiled the twenty major posts on the blog that went up between August 5 and August 18 into a single word document, linked below. Together these posts are intended to present both a thorough overview of the key moral and political issues surrounding Thaksin’s takeover at Manchester City. In the process, I present an overarching train of thought on what it all means, both from the point of view of Thailand and its prospects for democracy, and from the standpoint of City supporters.

Enjoy!

  1. David, California, USA Says:

    I’m not strictly a City fan… I was raised by a little village called Edgworth which lies roughly between Blackburn, Bolton and Bury, and I attended schools (and football matches) in those three towns and developed awkward split allegiances that are still frowned upon by my old friends. I just like watching a good game, that’s all, I don’t mind which teams are playing.
    But I digress… I wish to congratulate the author on a fine piece of work. I really wasn’t expecting myself to plough through the full 45 pages, but read it I did, and am now forwarding the document to those blue-tinted Mancunians I remain in touch with… Again, congratulations on a very thorough examination of the issues associated with the take-over. Very impressive and thought-provoking.

    A deeply flawed man, Thaksin Shinawatra is probably the most despised leader (and also arguably the most loved) of Thailand. The Great Divider and The Big Thief of Thailand.
