Thaksin Shinawatra

In a season full of City public relations disasters (the Ben Thatcher and Michael Ball incidents, Joey Barton in general, the home goal scoring drought, etc.), the worst could still be forthcoming...

MCFC's serious consideration of Thaksin Shinawatra's acquisition offers is very disappointing in my opinion. In light of Mr. Shinawatra's well documented poor human rights record as a former Prime Minister, I can only hope that our club will inevitably come to its senses and reject Shinawatra's overtures.

The great public relations damage that accepting Shinawatra's bid would cause far exceeds the benefit that would be gained from his financial prowess in my view. Liverpool FC for example was condemned by groups such as Amnesty International for entertaining Shinawatra's interest in LFC three years ago. Out of curiosity, do the majority of fellow City supporters share these viewpoints?
