Over the past 6 weeks, Andrew and I have written two summary articles that describe some of the elements of the “royal sub-plot” that is influencing Thai politics. Bangkok Pundit has helpfully pointed out more of the dots around Thanpuying Viraya Javakul who, you may recall, denied being behind the “assassination effort” against People’s Alliance for Democracy leader Sondhi Limthongkul. The Pundit’s eye-opening evidence and analysis is available here. As Pundit says with characteristic under-statement, “this is a sensitive topic”.
