A confused looking Yingluk Shinawatra finds herself surrounded by ordinary people who do not even acknowledge her existence. Normally Yingluk is surrounded by a huge crowd of well orchestrated, adoring, supporters dressed as farmers.
The photograph turned up on the social media without much explanation. Its not clear whether this was a publicity stunt gone horribly wrong or not. However, Bangkok roads are permanently gridlocked due to the incompetence and corruption of successive governments going back as far as anybody can remember. It is, therefore, quite possible that mass transit is now Yingluk’s only way to get to the hairdressers/spa/shopping mall.
