From Arun, August, 2017
On man: Politicians
On traps: Politics
[This seems to illustrate the highly restrictive environment that politics must be conducted in.
The junta has hauled many into court over their activities in the previous government while future governments will have to act under extremely tough restraints including an appointed senate.
While some Thaksin opponents might have tolerated the coups and other actions related to halting Thaksin’s return to power, a sobering reality is setting in. The future political landscape will have the military as arbiter.
This essentially returns Thailand to the political system of the 1980s and erases a 20-year experiment with fully elected governments.]
