The last words of Somchai, ex Prime Minister : “I did my best”

“I did my best to administer the country,” he said.

Somchai was chairing the weekly Cabinet meeting at his temporary office in Chiang Mai when the Constitution Court handed down the ruling to dissolve three coalition parties, including Chart Thai and Matchima Thipataya. (Nation)

By traveling to Peru for one week, in full national crisis, to attend a totally useless APEC meeting ? By hidding in Chiang Mai, afraid of his own shadow, afraid of the army ?

Sure he did his very best.

Thaksin’s brother-in-law will remain one of the dullest thai Prime Minister ever.

He was elected… less than 3 months ago (september 17)…

Somchai is going back where he belongs : History’s garbage can.

    Somchai is best described as “a modest man with much to be modest about”.

    However, it’s not clear that it was possible to do much better at a time, within a short timespan, under siege from day one, with all relevant forces refusing his orders. We should give Somchai credit for just sitting back and not doing significant harm (many politicians would have).

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
