9th September, 2008

Today's weather;

It's very cloudy again this morning, with few bright spots. Current temp is 25.5C at 7 am.

Yesterday saw heavy overcast all day long with some rain in the early evening for about half an hour. Max temp reached 29.5C.
The weather forecast for the next couple of days is not looking that great unfortunately.

On the political front things seem to have slowed down a bit, although this may be the silence before the storm, since PM Samak is facing a court ruling today that may see him having to step down and with him the whole cabinet.

The whole cabinet moved to the North East of Thailand, to the city of Udon Thani and it could well that the fuse is lit again here. Earlier this year there were already deadly clashed between pro and anti government demonstrators.

Even if Samak would survive all this, it's going to be interesting towards the end of the month, if he decides to actually join a UN meeting in New York city, an event during which former PM Thaksin Shinawatra was ousted from power in Thailand by a military coup.

It's quiet right now, but it can change very fast. If anything major happens, I will update my blog accordingly.
