Siam What Siam.

Looks like there is a coup in Thailand, Parliament hasn't had an expert on Thai affairs since Joe Ashton retired so I doubt Britain will be a major party in resolving the crisis. As with the Pakistan coup some years ago people's hostility towards the generals will be tempered by the hideous corruption of the democratic regime. Seceral predictions that I will make are:
  • A speculative theory of how the coup is the USA's doing will emerge.
  • No evidence will be produced
  • It will become accepted as fact regardless.
  • If the coup regime lasts the week then it will last for several years.
  • China won't object.
  • Someone wittier than me will be able to make a ladyboy joke.
