Forbid the king to speak to his people

From Manager, January 23, 2012
Worajate Pakeerat says: All Thais must have the freedom to speak and criticize the monarch.
Sign reads: Forbid the king to speak to his people
[This refers to the suspicion held by some that the goal of lese majeste reform is to eventually create a monarchy that is barred from making political comments–particularly those criticizing elected politicians. When Thaksin was PM, he was the object of pointed comments from the King during a yearly address.]
