The three main rally organisers have made clear that they will go ahead with their plans today.

Bersih 2.0 said it would proceed despite a police ban on 91 people from entering certain sections of Kuala Lumpur.

"There is no reason whatsoever to ban anyone from entering the city," it said in a statement. Umno Youth and Putera 1Malaysia Club are also going ahead with their events.

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said the Patriot assembly is due to be held in Jalan Bukit Bintang at 10am today.

"It is our right to assemble as stated in the Federal Constitution. We will accept any action taken against us," he told a press conference yesterday.

The police had earlier rejected Umno Youth's application for a police permit for a rally.

Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said its members could choose to take a stroll around the Tasik Titiwangsa area since its planned Gerak Aman assembly had been cancelled.

"If they don't want to stay at home, they can go strolling with their families in places that have not been restricted," he told a press conference yesterday.

He said Perkasa's application to use Titiwangsa Stadium was denied as the management had received a prior booking for another event.

However, he said Perkasa had not yet given up hope and would work on obtaining permission to use the Selayang Stadium by 2pm today.

Ibrahim said he would stay at home and abide by the court order that restricts him from the Kuala Lumpur business district today.

"My home minister won't allow me to go out. She will monitor me," he quipped, referring to his wife.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
