About 10,000 police, soldiers, security officials deployed to keep security at Government House

 

BANGKOK: -- About 10,000 policemen, soldiers and defence volunteers were deployed to keep security at the Government House.

 

The officials were spread out around the government seat.

 

The officials also put up barbed wires around the fence of the Government House and they set up barricades using fire trucks, water trucks, road rollers and containers.

 

The officials used containers to set up a blockade on the road next to the Orathai Bridge with only a small passage for people to walk past.

 

On the road next to Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge, the officials also set up containers and suspect detention vehicles and leave a small passage for officials to walk past.

 

The officials did not put blockade on the road next to Chamai Maruchet Bridge but simply used metal barricades to line up the road.

 

But the officials used 8 containers to block the road along the Prem Prachakorn Canal so that Cabinet members could use the Gate 7 on the road to enter and leave the Government House compound.

Better not be there when I am scheduled to arrive on the 19th or I am single handed going to remove every one of them, I have waited to long and planned to much for this trip for it to go down the drain :(

Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

If the military fully supports the government this could get real bloody. I imagine if they killed a few hundred protesters the rest would take a hint but the cost to the country would be huge if something like this happened.

This can't happen again can it? The closure last time cost me a lot of money. I am due to fly out on the 9th April :GoldenSmile1::NoNo3:

That, and a couple of other reasons, is why I think the red shirts are not going to get anywhere near the airport. They don't have the support of Bangkok's elite as PAD had.

 

If it did happen it better not happen until after Sunday.... :GoldenSmile1:

No way for the reds.

 

As allready mentioned

 

Without support of Bangkoks elite, the royality and the army i see no way for the reds.

 

Hopefully i am right !!! Amazing Thailand.

I fly out on the 28th.

 

An extra week in LOS would be good. But not if it turns bloody.

who gives a fuck TIT

Better to be daring and cool, than timid and uncool! Life's journey is not about arriving at your gravesite in a well preserved condition, but rather dropping into it in a long sideways skid, totally worn out, and shouting "Holy Shit...What a ride" - Indian Larry

well, arriving on the 18 april, so not sure if this is good or bad news... :001_Sawasdee:

 

the bad news could be that the airport in bkk will be closed, and i will have a long trip from either Phuket,chiangmai,or whatever around.....

 

the good news could be it would make the Thaibaht go down a lot due to panic.... :10of10Score:

 

so what to hope for?? i wouldnt mind the extra trip...if the baht dropped 25%... :Drunk_Party:

Just makes things more interesting and fun! Wish I was going.

Another shut down of the airport would bring more trouble for the Thai economy. When more people see this they will think twice before going to Thailand. The favourite holiday destination that LOS is could be getting a bad name to many farang.

 

Cheers,

Adrie.

The red shirts support ousted President THaksin. They are more a political movement not really socialists.

you have to remember these "protesters" are getting well paid to cause this anarchy, Thaksin's dough goes a long way to get his mates back in power.

Is Thaksin still living in exile as I havent heard much about him since he sold up at Man City.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
