    I suspect this guy is an adrenaline junkie, for the none English speakers this means he probably gets very excitable from being involved in dangerous activities.

    Well, if the road to reconciliation plan proceeds smoothly guess who is going to be number 1 target for the Police all over the country-can't see the authorities letting it pass that the guy has no visa or means of "paying his way" (interpret that phrase as you will!!)

    I bet this guy has a Visa, you know how often media reports are wrong on the small details.

    Gd question... Was he initially touring around Thailand when he was caught in its political whirlwind? Or did he just decide to pop down to Land of Smiles after watching about all the upheaval here in Down Under? (It might have been mentioned in some parts of the earlier articles but sorry I might have missed some details).

    Re: Wounded Australian on handouts takes to red shirt stage

    It is a little ironic that while the Red Shirts might generally consider a Thai Military person part of the problem they are happy to promote a Farrang military person as worthwhile listening to.

    He's not even a real military guy. Soldiers in Australia's armed forces call the military reserve "weekend warriors" and it's not a compliment.

    Australia has a long history of favouring the "little guy" so this fellow might be genuine in his enthusiasm for the Red Shirts if he sees them that way. That doesn't make his conduct wise or even helpful.

    Mikel.

    Aussie man refused bail in Bangkok
    RON CORBEN
    June 4, 2010 - 8:49PM

    An Australian who claims he's been bashed in a Thai prison has been refused bail pending his trial for an alleged breach of the country's emergency laws.

    Conor David Purcell, 30, from Western Australia, was detained last month for breaking Thai immigration laws and later charged over involvement in the recent violent "Red Shirt" protests in central Bangkok.

    His bail funds were to have been provided from the Red Shirt movement, which has links to former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, now in exile after facing a two-year jail sentence on corruption charges.

    A court source said the judge on Friday declined Purcell's request, citing a risk that he might flee the country.

    Purcell is due in court again on June 10 when a trial date may be set.
