And now the military controls the succession, just as it wanted.

This is probably all the information we’re going to get, since it’s unlawful to discuss anything about the royal house without authorization.

Nothing but good words about the former king

But his replacement???
This will get you jailed for posting this in Thailand.

He was the beloved monarch for 70 years and it would be nice if readers could simply show respect at this extremely painful time.

If you don’t, and if anyone in Thailand is foolish enough to agree with you, that person stands a good shot of being imprisoned for a long time. Snark about something else, is the best policy. Let the country mourn in peace, I suggest respectfully to you all.
