Abhisit Descends to a New Low

Well, this is a new low: our mind like a steel trap PM Abhisit is encouraging people to inform on each other – ostensibly to catch those supposed ill-intentioned people who were spreading rumours about HM the King’s health so as to damage the economy/image of the country etc (the SET Index dipped 2% one day but has long since recovered that and more). What could possibly go wrong with this plan? I accuse you, Tituba. I accuse you, Goody Osburn. I accuse you Goody Good (name Pavlov ring any bells?). I wrote the other day about the problem in Malaysia with false accusations and anonymous letters. There is no secret about this kind of thing and the difficulties that it causes.
