Having searched the internet I cannot find a single message board that campaigns for the 59-year-old.

Like the ordinary people of Thailand fully support him I am sure he gets the full support from the ordinary people of Manchester.

Not in a position to comment about his current affairs, but from a City point of view, he will always be remembered as being pivotal in saving us from oblivion. Frank - we salute you!

I know that when I spoke to somebody who had spent time in Thailand, he told me that over there, the people still love him. So can he really be that bad? I doubt it.

Actually legend he is very bad, and the people of Thailand not only dont love him, they are going off the english for harbouring him. He is a very corrupt man, he has bought people's votes in the poorer agricultural regions, and used inside information to buy up property that he knew was about to rocket near the 2nd airport inBangkok, just before it was built. He has fled the country but is still pulling the strings over there. You should be glad to be getting shot of him, i know i wouldn't want him anywhere near spurs

There are pertinent and totally objective facts which contradict the people who call Dr Thaksin Shinawatra "corrupt." 1. He is the only Thai leader to ever be elected twice in national elections. 2. He was ousted by a totally undemocratic military coup. 3. The military made illegal the membership of the PPP party which had won the election under Dr thaksin's leadership. 3. A brother-in-law of Dr Thaksin was elected Prime Minister on September 18, 2008. 4. He is a highly successful businessman, but that does not mean he is "corrupt." I would add that I think we in the UK should not place as much credence on the judicial system in a country like Thailand. The connections between legality, religion, military force, royalty, democracy and morality in Thailand are very different to what we consider normal in the West. I'm no legal eagle but it seems to me that it was illegal for the military to oust him in the first place. As for his conduct regarding Manchester City I think he has been great!

Frank once said in an interview, "How can you be corrupt when you use your own money?" Rather succint, I thought.

i dont know all the details .. but its unfortunate that him being the former leader of a country gets treated in such a manner.

All I can add is that after the abysmal way that Svengate was handled, his admission of "bringing shame" to City and organising a sale that was handled with a watertight secrecy and dignity saved the club's bacon. I thank him for that, having no clue at all what goes on in Thailand.
