Double Standards

It’s not surprising some double standards would exist when the government is in control and attempting to remain in power, but what’s different in Thailand’s case is how the government is so openly showing these standards.
No “Yellow Shirted Leader” as yet to be convicted for their blockade of Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports in late 2008 or the violence and disruption caused by their well organized and funded demonstrations.
Mr. Jatuporn accused the government of double standards, saying the difference was obvious in its handling of political rallies by the UDD and the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD).
The government took no legal action against the PAD when it recently rallied in front of Government House, a sports stadium and in front of the army headquarters, but strictly applied the law to every UDD rally.
He said the UDD would wait to see how PAD suspects would be treated when they reported to police over the blockade of Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports in late 2008.
