No attempt to lay seige to the city this Sonkgran

From Manager, April 10, 2011
Jatuporn is saying: The Songkran Festival this year – all Thai fellows let’s celebrate wholeheartedly as we don’t have a plan to stage a torching of the city [this year]
The caption reads: Celebrate fully as they allow
[In both 2009 and 2010, there were attempts to use the Red Shirts to overthrow the government by force on the streets of Bangkok.]

    In the caption, the word used as the pronoun for “they” is the very polite “than” – thus the meaning is intended to be sarcastic here: “Celebrate to the full extent……. the honorable gentlemen have deigned to allow it after all”, or something like that. 😉

    I wonder how Jatuporn would know whether the army is planning to burn more buildings?
    perhaps the royalist PAD and others get advised beforehand?
