  • Probe your own brother, ousted Thai PM tells junta chief

    Thailand's first female prime minister on Sunday told the man who ousted her government two years ago to investigate his own brother over corruption allegations, in an unusually strong broadside against the junta. Yingluck Shinawatra was booted from office shortly before army chief Prayut Chan-O-Cha seized power in May 2014, the military's second coup in less than a decade and their twelfth successful power grab since 1932. The last two legal cases stem from a popular but financially costly rice subsidy scheme that Yingluck's government pushed.

  • Roger Moore’s son is a dead ringer for his father in Bond costume

    It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).
