Andrew Spooner, a journalist in Thailand have been tracking a rumor that certain numbers of Thais who were intimidated by the royalist Yellow Shirt have left Thailand in fear and seek political asylum abroad. Andrew was blasted away by the royalist in Thailand that no such event took place.
UK Govt confirm Thai national received refugee status – likely because targeted by PAD extremists linked to Thai regime
Meanwhile, today Prayuth, Thailand’s army chief is making a great deal of noise about how the Thai royalist and royalism are above politics-but then told the Thais to help weed out those who does not respect Thai royalism.
Thai Royalism above politics?
Thai Inel just wants to remind our readers that the military itself, in the 200 coup, went to you know who and seek for you know who to legitimize the 2006 coup-to which you know who legitimized the coup and the meeting of you know who and top Thai military officers was televised throughout Thailand-as the sign of support.
Thai Intel also wants to remind our readers that the Yellow Shirt of Thailand is an extremist right-wing something that is dedicated to the Thai royaslism-and the royalist Yellow Shirt have been active in Thai politics-in street protest-and now has a political party.
Thai Intel also want to remind our readers that the royalist elite rule of Thailand are using Thai royalism to inject fear and control into the Thai society.
And in fact, this injection of fear and control through the use of royalism has reached an absurd level-with the latest being Prayuth speech urging Thailand to think back to ancient times, during Absolute Monarchy, as how Thailand should be like today.
“Those who insult royalism should be weeded out of Thailand,” said Prayuth.
“Thailand belongs to dad, and if you do not love dad, leave Thailand,” says the royalist.
Reports the Nation:
“Everyone is obligated, in an act of loyalty, to root out certain individuals from offending the country’s revered institution because without the monarchy, we may live but things will never be the same,” said Prayuth.
Prayuth reminded Thais about the benevolence of Their Majesties the King and the Queen.
Apparently, some Thais have actually had it with living in fear of the royalist and the royalist threats on their lives and have/are seeking political asylum abroad.
And actually, Thai Intel is also trying like so fucking hard to leave Thailand.

UK Government confirm Thai nationals received refugee status – evidence update
By Andrew Spooner
I have finally obtained cast-iron proof that a Thai national was granted refugee status in the UK in 2009 after I made direct contact with the relevant UK Government ministry responsible for deciding who recieves refugee status in the UK.
The result was that a spokesperson from the UK’s Home Office, the UK Government ministry that controls the Border Agency, confirmed that at least one Thai national was granted refugee status in the UK in 2009.
In addition to this I also contacted the Refugee Council, the largest independent body in the UK which deals with asylum seekers and refugees, to get their insight into whether the refugee documentation provided to me by my interview subject was, in their opinion, likely to be authentic. A spokesperson from the Refugee Council stated that the papers I was provided with do look like documents that would verify that a person has refugee status. However, they did say only the Home Office can confirm the status of a client and its authenticity.
Adding all this together, I am more than happy that my original story and interview was 100% accurate. What is now clear is that a precedent has been set and more Thai nationals seeking refuge from political violence and intimidation could emerge. One simple fact must be considered in all of this – that the present Thai regime does very little to control the extremist acts of intimidation, threats & violence perpetrated by the supporters and members of the PAD. The evidence of the present regime’s collusion with the PAD is overwhelming and substantial, as is the same regime’s refusal to uphold the rule of law vis a vis the actions of the PAD. One may even go so far to assume that the PAD acts as an agent of the regime, such is the legal and politcal cover it recieves. This has become one of the salient features of Thailand’s present political predicament.
If anyone has any proof to refute the evidence I’ve produced so far as to the veracity of my interview subject’s refugee status, please put it in the comments section. Just saying it isn’t so or calling my “biased” doesn’t count, I’m afraid.
