Democracy….So Long As You Vote For The “Good People”

The Thai military threaten to remove a democratically elected government if it doesn’t suit them:

“The ruling Democrats have been rattled by Miss Yingluck’s rise. Mr Abhisit, a youthful 47 himself, began the race more-or-less even with Pheu Thai.

Gen Prayuth Chan-ochan, the army chief, has signalled the powerful military may yet step into to prevent the opposition from assuming power. He urged voters to choose the “good people” and “make our country and our monarchy safe”. It was a thinly veiled dig at Mr Thaksin and Ms Yingluck.”
