Gimme Some Lovin’

Nhugewly-retired general, part-time PM and security hobbyist Prayuth Chan-Ocha, pictured here with a close ‘friend’, yesterday announced a  visit to Burma. “I just need a hug” sources close to the former general are thought to have overheard him mutter.

Meanwhile the newly appointed Army chief, General Udomdej Sitabutr, vowed not to stage a coup while Prayuth is out of the country. TDN reporters were unable to categorically establish whether the general’s fingers were crossed during the press conference.

It is hoped the new army chief will begin to modernize the Thai Army by buying a shed-load of American helicopters to replace the one’s they keep losing in Burma.
