Thai Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej was finally forced out of office not by protests but by the Courts:
Samak, 73, a self-proclaimed foodie, hosted a popular television cooking show — ”Tasting and Complaining” — for seven years before becoming prime minister. But he also made several appearances after taking office, breaking a constitutional prohibition on private employment while in office.
This isn’t the end of Thailand’s political problems b a long shot, and they still have an active insurgency in the South.
