It look like Thaksin have said he don’t feel like to return to politics many times, again and again to news sources around the world. But in practice, he never stop involving in politics. He also traveled around the world and try to discredit the military and Thai court of justice on all interviews.

If you keep an eyes on politic news for last few days, you may found some interesting characteristic of Mr. Thaksin Shinawatra, which was spotted and have been analyze on This article, Thaksin’s new interview: Take it with a heavy grain of salt.

Thaksin denies plans to return to politics, the former telecommunications mogul insisted he had no desire to return to active politics, however “he said he remained abreast of relevant political developments as he battles to reclaim $1.9bn anti-graft investigators seized from his family last month”

The funds in dispute are the proceeds from the Shinawatra family’s $1.9bn tax-free sale last year of Shin Corp, their telecommunications empire, to Singapore’s Temasek Holdings, the largest ever corporate takeover in Thailand, which triggered mass protests that ultimately paved the way for the military intervention.

Then later in this interview, Mr. Thaksin urged Thai voters to reject a constitution that he saw as an act of “political revenge” against him. He said voters should aim for the restoration of the abolished 1997 constitution, which was intended to stabilise and clean up Thailand’s notoriously money-driven politics but was later blamed for failing to check Mr Thaksin’s power.

Is he trying to be democracy hero ? Or he just trying to prevent himself from being judge in many corruption charges ? You decide.

AEC

Legal fact? or just another propaganda ?

The first in-depth analysis of the TrueThaksin.com was blogged, and look like there’ll be many parts to come. The writer did his first analysis on this AEC : Part of the Perfect Plan . I’ve put a hilight of this article here :

The Thaksin version:
The investigation, threat, defamation and many other wrongful things had begun since that very day; September 30, 2006. However, up until now the AEC did not fine a single evidence to confirm the corruption by Dr. Thaksin Shinawatra or that Dr. Thaksin has any personal gain out of those 11 cases accused by the AEC. Never mind, though the investigation of those cases have not been finalized. Let’s freeze the assets first, then let them fight for justice and prove that they are innocent!

My version:
The evidence has been found, it has not been publicly revealed because it would prejudice the case. Thaksin knows this and is using the AEC’s professionalism as a weapon against them. When one case of UK authorities leaking details of possible account concealment by Thaksin was reported in the mainstream press, AEC secretary Kaeswawan was furious that the media were informed.

To use a crude analogy: imagine a police officer sees a drug dealer trying to throw away his drugs, would the officer be wrong to seize the drugs? The AEC had grounds to believe the cash stocks could be transferred away pending the announcement of charges, and ordered a freeze, no a seizure. It could be argued that Thaksin would have already transferred the money out but this is a straw man in the legal argument.

Thaksinomics?

July 28, 2007

ทักษิโณมิกส์ ?

A friend sent me this story under the headline “Thaksinomics.” Credit where credit is due? You read the story and tell me whether you can come up with a better headline:

Three contractors..one from Thailand, another from Germany and the third from England are bidding to repair the White House fence.

They go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The English contractor takes out a tape and does some measuring..then works on some figures with a pencil. “Well,” he says, “I figure the job will cost $900 — $400 for materials and $400 for labour and $100 profit for me…”

The German contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says: “I can do this job for $700….$300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.”

The Thai contractor doesn’t measure or do any figuring but leans over the White House official and whispers: “$2,700.”

The official incredulously says: “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?”

“Easy,” the Thai explains, “$1,000 for you…$1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Germany to do the work!”

มาเดากันดูว่าเงินมากมายเป็นกองภูเขานี้เป็นของใคร ?

Guess whose money mountain is this?

You can only take a wild guess. The picture has been widely forwarded through emails, if you have not received it already.
The mountain compiles of stacks of Bt100 banknotes, US dollar and euro banknotes.
Even AMLO, which seizes people’s money for a living, doesn’t store money in its custody like this.

Do you have any idea whose money is this? We welcome any tip or input.

Um… just an idea from a story in the past… a person who was powerful in our country said he loved to keep a lot of cash in his house, in a whole room especially for this, as he loved the feeling of having cash handy to spend.
Then, who would have the same idea as this once powerful person? Can you figure out?

The appearance of Thai banknotes suggests this room might belong to a Thai, or someone with Thai connections. Whether the location is in Thailand is another matter.
