Very good news for Burma. Majority of Burmese do not want Burma to break up or Yakhine colonised by muslim Rohingyas, who are illegal immigrants. Their ancestors were brought into Burma as labourers, coolies or servants to serve the English coloniser. Free media will unite Burmese people with the government.
Burmese media in exile, in the pocket of foreign donor, are prone to treason. Things are changing. Burma will reclaim its true history. Muslims have been fabricating the history of Yakhine.
The King of Burma, HM Shwebomin, Alaungpaya II, who had defied the military usurper so-called Ne Win, whose real name is Shu Maung, is understood to be supporting the newly established parliament, the monks, the government and President.

How do you know the King had not done anything earlier?
From behind the scene, the King had worked tirelessly for freedom and democracy since 1988.
It was the conspiracy of the English monachist league, Wikipedia and low life Burmese economic migrants that kept the King's sterling work in the dark. They attempted character assassination on the noble king, to no avail.
The King had guided the mark II military regime on the road to democracy, explaining that evolution rather than revolution would be the correct way. English media had a 'black out' policy on the King, directing all attention on SuuKyi, not even mentioning her brother Aung San Oo. Aung San Oo had not spoken to Suu Kyi since the day she married Michael Aris.
Asked by his cousin King Shwebomin in 1970 or 1971 how he felt about his sister marrying Michael Aris, Aung San Oo replied:' She is no longer my sister, she will have to face the consequences.' What an irony.
It was young Shwebomin or Schwebomin as the king is known in continental Europe and Aung San Oo who wanted to overthrow ShuMaung and his BSPP lunatic regime. But no one would help them.
In 1970 or 1971 Aung San Oo was doing his MSc in electrical engineering; Shwebomin had already got his MSc in Thermodynsmics of Birmingham University in 1968.
The king has two more masters degrees, MBA from prestigious Cranfield University and MA in International Relations from University of Kent.
He collected his MA degree in the Canterbury cathedral at the same time as Gavin Asler of BBC in November 1995,
FCO is fully aware of the King's existence.
Apart from guiding Senior General Than Shwe, the king had provided finance to ABSDF All Burma Students Democratic Front, and also to the Burmese refugees in Thailand. The King has also provided an English girl called Donna Johnson financial assistance when she was teaching English to the refugees.
