Thaksin a Nationalist?

More hyperbole on the sell-off of Shin from the Bangkok Post:
/>

The sell-off of Shin Corp shares by the Shinawatra and Damapong families to Singapore’s Temasek Holdings is one of the 10 paths that could lead to the collapse of the country, social critic Dr Prawase Wasi said yesterday.
/>
/>Dr Prawase yesterday made public a paper in which he commented on the Shin share sell-off, saying that any move to allow foreign groups to control Thailand was one of the many ways to “murder” the country.


/>The Manager has a similiar article with the Thai word for “murder” (ฆาตกรรม) and more nationalist sentiment from Dr Prawase – Thais losing their freedom/independence etc.

/>COMMENT: If Thaksin is a nationalist, what would you call Dr Prawase?
