Veronica Pedrosa talks to Thaksin Shinawatra in Dubai
In this episode of Talk to Jazeera, Al Jazeera's Veronica Pedrosa talks to billionaire tycoon and ex-Thai prime minister, Thaksin Shinawatra.

Shinawatra talks to Al Jazeera from Dubai where he is currently living in exile in the country's seven star hotel.

Thousands of miles away in Bangkok the generals who overthrew him are scrutinising his every move because he retains his popularity in large sections of Thai society.

Al Jazeera asks him if he pines for the power he once had and for Thailand itself and finds out what he is doing now and whether he intends to quit politics.
