New Mandala readers looking for a different take on life in Thailand and Bangkok may find that rewards a visit. Recent posts have included a poll on PM Samak and the controversy over “dangerous” Thailand.

The proprietor of the site also recently approached New Mandala for comment. He has since put together an article about our site which is available here. In the responses that follow the piece someone writes:

It is quite likely that Crocodile Dundee has a special admiration for Thaksin. Did anyone notice that during his exile, the ex-PM went to Australia? I wonder why? Maybe the owner of New Mandala has something to explain to its readers.

Ahhh…that old chestnut…
