Thailand in crisis

It’s getting more tense and disturbing by the day in Bangkok. My condo is literally five minutes taxi ride from the centre of the red shirt encampment and on a visit to pick up some film and have breakfast early last week I found myself in what can only be described as a war zone with razor wire and troops everywhere. The red shirts were working on a barricade made up of tyres and lengths of bamboo which has now, a week later, become a resounding image in the international press. These are troubling times waiting for decisive action to be taken whilst mass propaganda reigns and reckless acts appear to be on the rise.
