Rotten to the core


This year is the thirtieth anniversary of God Save The Queen by the Sex Pistols. Which I remember as if it was yesterday, so I guess I must be getting old.

The reason I'm writing about it however, is because access to YouTube has been banned in Thailand following the posting of a series of anti monarchy videos.

The videos in question were apparently ridiculing the King of Thailand. An offence punishable with a hefty prison term in Thailand.

I did a quick search for the Thai King on YouTube. Here are the three top rated videos:

We loves our king Thailand

Why Thai people love the king

60th anniversary of our beloved King

As Johnny Rotten once said, ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
