Royal succession : “As father fades, his children fight”

Striking article published in The Economist this week (read here).

The King, the succession, the Prince, the links with Thaksin, the fight between factions, the future of the monarchy… It says a lot.


This week issue of the newspaper is not (of course) distributed in Thailand.

    It was not officially “ban”, but unofficially “self-censor” by the publisher.

    May be because either they don’t care the educated who can read English or they are having too many other things to deal with. But this article says a lot.
