Thai Culture: 2) A Sexy Modern Bangkok? Bras & Panties exhibition everyday at Grand Palace

By Tammy, Thai Intel’s humanity journalist

The Democrat Party Governor of Bangkok, Sukhumphan Boripatra, has a problem. He is from a party that supports the Elite Establishment of the top echelons of Thais that feel they are above the law and that they can do no wrong, because Thailand belongs to them.

Yet Bangkok is getting to be an international city, with global norms and values becoming what people expect. A sub-standard Governor with a developing country mind-set, increasingly, is just an embarrassment for everyone.

Then apart from all of that, ASEAN AEC is fast approaching, and the major capital cities of ASEAN countries are competing, to be the best. A modern capital, filled with modern people, is the goal of ASEAN capitals.

So the Bangkok Governor is trying to modernize and beautify Bangkok, like taking Bangkok on a greening drive and anything that looks like a third world country, gets a re-development. One of that was to spend US$ multi millions to re-develop Sanam Luang or the Royal Ground, the open area in front of the Grand Palace. The area, have come to define Thailand and Bangkok to the globe.

In doing that, 100s of homeless were driven away from sleeping at Sanamm Luang, 100s of merchants were driven off, 10,000s of Pigeons were driven off, 100s of dogs were driven off, and in the end, the city said the Red Shirts can not hold anymore political gathering there.

The final “Declaration of Rule of Law” for Sanam Luang, is that anyone who protested there, will be fined heavily and jailed heavily.

Well, the latest, is that meters from the Grand Palace walls, right across the street, at Sanam Luang, are 10s of “Bras and Panties” hanging on ropes, in the open, from a group of protesters who have been camping at the park protesting and plan to stay there, months upon months more, until they got rig of PM Yingluck Shinawatra administration.

Sukhumphan can not do a thing. Days earlier, the man behind the 2006 coup, the Fascist Extreme Right, Ultra Nationalist leader, a man Former PM Abhisit Vejacheva of the Democrat Party has to say thank you to for putting Abhisit in the PM seat, Prasong Soonsiri, just went to spend the afternoon with the protesters.

The Fascist protesters have decided to “Settle Down” by the Grand Palace, at Sanam Luang, of course, is to show that they are close to the Thai Royalty and are protecting the Thai Royalty from the evil Thaksin and Yingluck.

Meanwhile, as the “Bra and Panties” of the Fascist, swing with the wind and dried by the sun, meters from the Grand Palace walls, Sukhumphan just issued a new “Beautification Rule” of Bangkok, to help make the city modern, and that is “no street merchants on the street, on every Monday.”

There are about 200 to 300 Fascist “Un-Toucheables” camping out at Sanam Luang with their underwear blowing in the wind for all to see, and there are 10s of 1,000s of street hawk in Bangkok, mostly poor.

The city of Bangkok policy is, of course, “kiss the rich in the ass and screw the poor up the ass.”

What is new in Thailand? Of course, that is the nature of any Elite establishment.
