I think we have an interesting case for mental institutions here…
Akhbar Khan is back. Who is this man ? This british citizen helped the thai police officer who filled lese-majeste complaints (3 times !) against the BBC Journalist J.Head plus another complaint against Jakrapob (thai politician, friend of Thaksin).
Lenine knew very well how to qualify those people : useful idiots.
Mister Khan is back. But this time alone.
BP has a very funny story, a translation from the thai newspaper The Manager.
Mr Khan a 43 year-old Englishman and a freelance journalist disclosed to ASTV on March 13 that yesterday (March 12) he sought assistance from the Consumer Protection Board for 3 million Baht compensation as the FCCT won’t sell him the DVD of UDD’s attendance at the FCCT on December 9, 2008 which might have been in breach of lese majeste laws. In addition, he was dismissed as a member as the FCCT was concerned he would file a lese majeste complaint against Veera and he seeks justice.
The obsession is confirmed : this man sees lese-majeste everywhere. A simple commercial problem ? Lese-majeste for sure. A dish served too cold in a restaurant ? Lese-majeste (waitresses, beware).
But wait… here comes the best part, the morceau de choix, the grand finale (I feel really european tonight) :
He said he didn’t do this for fame, but to the protect the institution. Some in Thailand have referred to the institution and he couldn’t tolerate this as in England they have great respect for the monarchy. “I am surprised that in Thailand there are people who commit lese majeste. If someone did that in the UK they would be arrested and thrown in a mental asylum for sure,” said Mr. Khan.
Huge, isn’t it ?
And from a psychoanalytic point of view, I think it’s very interesting to hear Mister Khan speaking about… “mental asylum “… Very interesting indeed. 😉
Hey Khan, I’ve got a news for you : you are famous now.
But probably not for the right reasons. 😉
On a much more serious tone now : the thai authorities have to understand that if they continue to let those lunatics (Khan and his thai accomplice) making fool of themselves while toying with the monarchy, the monarchy will be undermined.
Abhisit should understand this crucial point : don’t let such people use the lese-majeste law for their own insane crusade, to mask or find derivatives to their own private problems and obsessions.
The more this kind of people are allowed to continue their crusade… the more the monarchy will be dragged into the public debate, and will be degraded.
Stop Khan. And stop Police Lieutenant-Colonel Watanasak.
