    One doesn’t really engage in conversation with a compulsive liar and cheat. If you were daft enough to be taken in by his increasingly lame stunts, you would actually be forced to endure a patronizing sermon. What this man seriously needs (to be taught the lesson of a lifetime, that he so obviously did NOT receive in his spoilt-rich youth) is to be subjected to a sustained aggressive attack by someone with some real convictions. (It wouldn’t really matter very much whether the rest of us actually supported the views of such a protagonist. All that would really matter would be that for the very first time in his arrogant life, Thaksin came up against someone who did not cave into his power/money equation at the earliest possible opportunity.) Local politicians are a sneaky bunch, but they basically only ever engage in backbiting. They have no taste for a real face-to-face toe-to-toe slugfest. Seh Ai would never be up-to-it, as he far too much a part of the local face-saving culture. Both figures are seriously in need of some major league humiliation, to bring them both down to the level of us mere humans. The local world has revolved around such worthless blowhard incompetents for far too long.
    By setting up such an apparently obsequious engagement, the Asia Society and the ABLF are showing themselves up laissez-faire appeasers, incapable of learning anything from Thaksin’s very obvious errors.
