At least someone's protesting...

The lack of interest from the mainstream media in the potential purchase of Manchester City by former Thai PM Thaksin Shinawatra has been disappointing.

Thaksin is a former 3rd world dictator who, according to many, has the blood of thousands on his hands. The ways in which he acquired his billions have been questioned by many. Censorship and press freedom took severe hits during his time in power. There were numerous scandals involving millions and he and his family were enriched beyond comprehension during his time in power.

And yet the shameless desire for salvation at any cost by Manchester City means apparently this thug will soon be the owner of an English Premier League team.

At least some people are crying foul.

Idi Amin and Pol Pot could have been courted as buyers for struggling NHL franchises during the 1970's.
