    Default No comment on Facebook King stuff?

    Video of the 64 year old King walking around a German shopping mall in a bizarre crop top, body half covered in tattoos, with a similarly dressed tattooed woman and there's no comment here?

    Did anyone breach this subject with their other halves? If so, what was the reaction? (Mine reacted with disinterest/perhaps not wanting to see it)

    Missus "Don't want to talk about it", in a serious tone like if I do it will set off a huge row.....so I left it alone.

    I guess comparison's with Prince Harry's misdemeanours could be made.

    I was discussing this with a Thai yesterday - they have already seen all the footage - not through me I should add, I haven't seen this latest stuff myself. But they are not amused.

    Now they want to stop people just watching such content.
    From the Bangkok Post

    "Watching lese majeste content may be deemed wrongdoing."

    From Dave and Tia's link (bolding is my emphasis):

    "Police are clamping down on lese majeste offences by shifting their focus to viewers of illegal content even if they do not post or share it

    … According to Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) chief Thitirat Nongharnpitak, users of social media will be treading a narrow path as police plan to target viewers in the crackdown even if they do not interact with those illicit webpages.

    … According to Pol Lt Gen Thitirat, lese majeste cases involve three groups of people: the producers of illegal content; the viewers who leave comments, share content or click Like; and those who read or view without interacting."

    It's not as though you have any choice of what appears on your timeline, what a perverse, crazy and ridiculous turn of events. It's rather shameful really.

    Now the authorities have banned the Charlie Chaplin film, The Great Dictator.
    Seems they think it refers to the present Thai one.

    Just a thought. Imagine the lads who have to scroll through this load of pointless tripe trying to outlaw such meaningless nonsense and how they react when they come across pictures such as the aforementioned. Certain members of this establishment have raised more than an eyebrow before, some of it comical others just plain nasty. How uncomfortable will they feel trying to contain a smirk, smile or sneer when discussing it whilst fearing this draconian law? "When Somchai saw X in his thong he nearly wet himself sir."
    "Really, stick him in the cells..."

    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.
