It’s just too tempting to start off with the questionably racist “they all look the same to me” gag.
Apologies, but sometimes it’s there begging.
Anyhow… tourists travelling to Thailand over the next few months should apparently take heed and be filling their suitcases with vibrant floral shirt action.
Why you ask?
Because political protesters in Bangkok seem to be commandeering every colour under the sun as a marker for political agenda… so basically, wear that new red t-shirt, and you’ll most likely have seven shades of brown beaten out of you by burly men with sticks
By wearing red, you’ll align yourself with the supporters of former leader Thaksin. Blue will place you in the camp of pro-government agitators. Yellow lends you to the People’s Alliance for Democracy, supported by the upper classes.
And if you’re pretty in pink then it simply means you’re either loyal to the King or very loved up.
Oh, and you’ve got the best music video… Go Go Jintara!
