    Journos should know better than to mess with monarchy, let us see what happens to him when he returns to Thailand – in one of his events there was an attempt to attack Queen Elizabeth II

    who is the invisible hand behind all this?

  • Evidence on Fah Dieo Kan shows that Jonathan Head was most probably corrupt

  • Nicola

    Jonathan is most certainly not corrupt.

    I challenge anyone saying so to produce real evidence instead of hiding behind rumours.

    Why was Jonathan pursuing Lese Majeste like a rabid dog? There are many other stories, on one day the BBC released 3 Lese Majeste stories.

    Jonathan also hosted an evening of anarchy with Jakrapob Penkair.

    There is smoke, and where there is smoke……

    Nicola seems like a fake farang! who is hiding? If Jonathan is a real man why does he make no comment? He loves asking questions but seems very afraid to answer!

    Jonathan also wrote alot of unresearched opinion , cheap low class journalism that smells like pure propaganda

  • Nicola

    A “Fake Farang”? Goodness me … what would that make me if I were authentic?

    Jonathan is required by the BBC and pure common sense not to comment at all or to anyone until this issue is resolved. I realize common sense is hard to come by for some, Nissara, but I would be glad to package some up and send it to you if you want to post your address.
