The "yellow shirts" who shut down two Bangkok airports in November were well funded. It should also come as no surprise if some wealthy people had been funding the "red shirts" who brought Bangkok to a standstill over the weekend. If it could be shown that former Thai PM Thakin's fortune made its way into the pockets of red shirt demonstrators, that would hardly be of surprise to anyone.
Yet the popularity of a newly released video indicates that Thaksin may be uniquely vulnerable to such a charge.
Jotman suggests why this may be the case and presents the wildly popular [but misleading] "smoking gun" video here.
