About the Speaker:
Since even before he became an international affairs advisor to Prime Minister Gen Kriangsak Chomanan, Graham Catterwell has been a keen observer of Thai politics. "International affairs advisor" sounds like a grand title, but the main task was produce a daily "idiot's guide to what happened in the world yesterday and overnight", as the then massive turgid tomes from the Foreign Ministry proved too much of a challenge.
For more than half of the King's reign to date, Graham has never been too far from the centre of political power. Having had personal dealings with most Thai prime ministers in the period, he has colourful anecdotes on most ... but unfortunately not all of these can be related in an open forum. He has of course been very closely following recent developments, and appreciates a close working relationship with military intelligence.
