Useful Idiot : a british… helped the thai cop in lese-majeste case

Lenine called these people “useful idiots”.

Bangkok Pundit has an article about it.

Something is missing however : the thai cop filled also a complaint against a BBC correspondent for… lese-majeste (read my article) !

With his interview to Bangkok Post, he looks like a little child, helped by his big brother, Mr Khan, “a former English teacher for police at the Special Branch Police and the Crime Suppression Division“.

The 42-year-old British citizen later translated the speech into Thai and submitted the paper to many police, but none were prepared to file a complaint against Mr Jakrapob.

Mr Jakrapob is a Thai national. He should not have made such a remark, which I find really disgusting,” said Mr Khan, who works as a freelance translator and reporter.

Indeed : useful idiot.

What a thai drama ! 😉

Last point : reporter… british… complaint against the BBC… Could it be a matter of jealousy ?

    Aha so first a Jailed rebel that attacked General Prem’s home was invited to talk about “patronage” at the FCCT and then a “conspiracy” is revealed, an ousted PM is mentioned as being involved and then everyone says no no it was some Afghan shepherd boy (pretending to be British) and as usual he cried wolf and there was no wolf

    I guess everybody forgot to to tell the protesters to go home now that it was only the lost shepherd boy.

    You bloggers crack me up so bad with your pseudo journalism, dont try telling me that a newspaper actually printed all that crap, there must be real demons to be exposed!

    Sounds more like a pathetic PR campaign to promote Jonathan Head if you ask me, the FCCT probably gets a fair bit of PR too

    Roger, you should have a look at my “weird / bigotery” Category.
    Then you’ll be really cracked up.

    The Post Today on Monday wrote a big article on Akbar Khan and glorifies him as a true hero! I also saw him on ASTV cursing Jakrapob. After seeing all this news I am beginning to wonder if there is more than meets the eye with this bizarre story. Can we expect more accusations from this gentleman and if so against whom?

    Really ? Do you remember in which section (Postbag, news, business, outlook, perspective etc.)

    I can’t find it on line.

    Thaicrisis : The Post Today is the name of a Thai newspaper, I was not referring to The Bangkok Post

    Mr Khan did the correct thing, definitely not an idiot from what I hear d from him on TV

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
