Just a thought (from Brighton, the Hua Hin of the UK). A lot of the recent discussion of Thai politics is based on the rural-urban divide. Many recognise that this divide is blurred by demographic fluidity. But how many Thais are, politically at least, fixed in place by the rules of the electoral system? For the occasional visitor like myself, voting days in the village are characterised by an influx of unfamiliar faces as students, workers and travellers return home to cast their vote. What would Thai politics look like if these people could cast their votes in the places where they study, work and play? Perhaps the clear distinction between urban and rural voting patterns would start to break down. Who knows, populism may even start to catch on in the cities! Worth a thought?
