Then there are those who... have packed their bags and left. Mind you, this includes our best and brightest.
And most of the partying lot here aren't exactly the brightest. In fact, they are most likely to give in to the slightest provocation when they are slighted by whatever silly reason.

Google translation of Sin Min Re Pao news article.
Bangkok shocking news came, one dead 39 injured in bombings occurred on Friday, there is video captured the man after throwing hand grenades, and the truck driver both fled the scene, while a truck belonging to the opposition at all, and therefore it is rumored anti-government protesters and the army Party set a trap, a self attack action!
Thailand, "Bangkok blockade" of anti-government protests last into the first six days earlier was a suspected grenade attack protesters died yesterday morning, becoming self-week "blockade of Bangkok" first person killed since the demonstrations began, but also to self- Since the end of anti-government protesters to nine victims.
Events that further political tension, the police pointed out that CCTV near the scene photographed wearing a white hat, a man suspected murderer, he worked in the vicinity of the opposition Democratic Party belongs to an assistant truck appeared, police looking for the assistant to assist in the investigation.
According to video footage, Whitecaps men approached the truck after throwing an "article", quickly hid behind a pillar, five seconds after triggering an explosion, smoke in the sky, the man with the truck driver fled the scene, ignoring the site of injury demonstrators.
Democrats angry denial; Thai party refers to the opposition: the blockade not discredit the government; Zaibao last night shooting a man seriously injured. Full coverage, please refer to 19.01.2014 "Shin Min Daily News."
The conclusion should be coming soon. Somehow the gut feeling tells me Army gonna step in soon.
And yes , I hope Suthep has the balls to face his murder charge in court. Thaksin corrupted or not, did manage to bring a decade of peace to Thailand and most of all, improved the lives of the poorest - how many leaders can u find nowadays that does this ?
As for corruption, Suthep's corruption cases are quite clear-cut. Thaksin made executive decisions that favored himself but this is not clear cut corruption. If this is considered corruption then every political leader is corrupt.
State of emergency imposed. For 60 days.
It will damage the tourism trade in BKK during crucial Lunar New Year festive period. Gone case for the hotels.

Toyota threatened to pull out their investment if this continues
At 10.25pm on 21 Jan 2014
Suthep vows to defy emergency decree.
There will be a clash when the mob does not respect the law.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suthep_ThaugsubanWikileaks diplomatic cables from the US embassy revealed that many members of his own party have long complained of his corrupt and unethical behavior.
The Democrat party (need to change the name) of Thailand sends the mob to prevent the Thai citizens from voting.
Quote from Suthida Sungkhapunthu
"I saw this coming but I'm still quite disappointed," she said, denouncing the protesters as "undemocratic" as she watched the mob at her polling station a block away. "It's my constitutional right" to vote.
If they had come earlier they could have joined Thaksin and Aung San Su Kyi at the 2013 Singapore F1.
