By Khettiya Jittapong BANGKOK (Reuters) - Protesters seeking to topple Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and install unelected leaders in a so-called "people's coup" will march across Bangkok on Monday, reigniting a political crisis in Southeast Asia's second-biggest economy. The march comes a day after Yingluck proposed a referendum on her future and promised to resign if that was what the people wanted, as anti-government protesters prepared for a final push to try to force her from power. Protesters have been on the streets of the capital for weeks, clashing with police and vowing to oust Yingluck and eradicate the influence of her self-exiled brother, former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Underscoring the divide, the pro-establishment Democrat Party said all of its members of the House of Representatives would give up their seats because they were unable to work with Yingluck's ruling party.

Adelaide (Australia) (AFP) - Australia wrapped up a comprehensive 218-run victory over England on Monday to take a potentially decisive 2-0 series lead as they seek to recapture the Ashes from their fierce rivals. It was a second emphatic defeat for England after they lost the first Test in Brisbane by 381 runs and the tourists must regroup before the third Test, which starts in Perth on Friday. England have only won once in 12 Tests on the traditionally pacy WACA pitch. Peter Siddle finished the best of Australia's bowlers with four for 57.
