Thaksin has tweeted four preconditions for peace talks:

1. restoration of the 1997 constitution

2. a general election and promise all parties would recognise the outcome

3. a fair trial on all the cases against him, both those already judged and those pending

4. the return of his legally acquired assets currently frozen by the government

Reasonable demands IMO, but they also look like a Pipe Dream in today's


pipe dream - a fantastic but vain hope (from fantasies induced by the opium pipe); "I have this pipe dream about being emperor of the universe"
