Isn't that part of the routine for coups as recommended by The Saint? Take over the radio and TV stations, announce a public holiday for tomorrow and double the pay for all the police and public servants as long as they turn up for work the day after.
Damn it, just got back from the 'stan and was looking forward to a nice relaxing holiday with some cheap "female" company . What if I become a mercenary. I bet the Thai army have a better way of rewarding their soldiers in theatre than LSSA and the obligatory fat naafi bint
(I apologise in advance if your partner is the afformentioned fat naafi bint. Oh who am I kidding)
