Thaksin interview revisited

It's entirely understandable that the elected government of Thailand would want to rewrite the charter written by the coup-installed interim government. Today Thai PM Samak declared his government's intention to do just that. What's most interesting to me is that this announcement -- as with several previous major announcements by the new government -- follow verbatim an agenda laid out by the former deposed PM Thaksin in his interview with the Financial Times (blogged here). The FT interview turns out to have been a most reliable blueprint for the country's future course.*
