Oh boy, I'm now waiting for TRE to pick this one up and herald a new FT-flogging raid. As if the Burmese didn't get enough of those already.

Don't get me wrong, she meant well but I think she is oblivious to the grouses from the 'citizens' here regarding immigration.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Ms Kyi's attitudes to a few things have been bothering me for awhile. She's not the angel the MSM make her out to be and I'm a little concerned with her vision of the future for Burma.
