Nah, won't be long. After all, he's busy posting in other threads and
starting new ones, so he'll surely post a reasoned response in this one...

Doug recently posted on uk.legal, praising the Thai authorities for the
peaceful way they 'police' protests compared to the UK situation.

I told him he would be left with egg on his face when the inevitable
happened.

It has of course:

"Pressure is mounting on Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, days
after 21 people died in clashes between troops and anti-government
protesters.
Saturday's clashes were the deadliest political violence since 1992.
Seventeen civilians died in the unrest - including a Japanese cameraman
working for Reuters news agency. At least four soldiers were also killed and
800 other people were injured."

I drew this to Doug's attention and asked for his comments but, of course,
he has failed to respond...

Compared to a hypothetical one who'd easily be banned for that little
lot...

A car driver would quite possibly be incarcerated even, for driving on
the pavement!
