Abhisit (who ?) speaks again and calls for elections

Abhisit (who ?), the alleged leader of the Democrat Party (who ?) has regained the ability to… speak !

Amazing ! 😉

During the “airport crisis”…they were very, very silent, even shy… I’m wondering why ?

And now the crisis is over, so like a doll getting out of its box, mister Abhisit (who ?) speaks again.

We shall hold our hands together and listen religiously to what He Has To Say (who ?) :

Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva on Wednesday urged for House dissolution on the ground that a snap election will allow a fresh start to form a viable government to tackle the political and economic woes.

Abhisit said he wanted the transition to the next government to take place under prescribed rules sanctioned by the Constitution.

Any ideas to bring about changes by non-constitutional means are not appropriate, he said in reference to the push to form a national unity government. (Nation)

Furthermore, why does he persist ? He always loose elections, with an impressive consistency ! 😉

Anyway, if you want to give a treat to your zygomatic muscles, you should read why Abhisit (who ?) will probably never be the… thai Obama.

    A country with a bad government is in trouble. But true danger waits for a country which also has a bad opposition. Normally a situation like in Thailand would be the dream of any opposition leader: an incapacitated government and a gone-crazy extraparliamentary opposition, a wonderful setting handed on a plate where you could present yourself as the third way, the voice of reason, the resort for a better future. Problem is, we’re talking about the Democrat Party.

    Apirak Kosayotin looked much more able than does Abhisit to lead the Dems. Unfortunately, he is being held back by a corruption charge, which I believe he will be found not guilty. Thailand is not ready for another election.

    What the Democrat Party lack in substance and (democratic) conviction, they make up with pretty-face young leaders: Abhisit, Korn, Apirak. “New politics’ new Democrats style. Perhaps next election these pretty-faces could win more votes. Perhaps . . .

    It’s kinda hard to open your mouth and not being ask what the hell do one of your MP doing as one of the core PAD leader. He played a wise political move(that would not score him any point though).

    But to call for dissolution, again and again. Bad move. Now is the time to distant yourself from the PAD, not repeat their agenda. That move would cost the Dem votes on the next election.

    It amazes me that the Democrats don’t copy TRT/PPP themes when running for elections.
    Promise Free Health Care and expand it (free testing, natal care, etc..)
    Keep the village loan program, add micro-loans for businesses
    Export pricing subsidies, OTAP, etc….

    The TRT/PPP/XXX may be a bunch of crooks, but they do have policies that resonate with their constituents; The Democrats don’t seem to have any platform.

    I guess they just don’t have the talent for it.

    Democrat Party is just too old… with too many old minded people inside.

    Abhisit (who ?) is a nice looking “display case”… but he’s the prisoner of the old bosses.

    A couple years ago i thought : “this guy can be interesting”. And he could offer a real change. Oxford University… that could bring fresh air into the thai feudal system.

    What a disappointement…

    And the worst part : in 20 years from now… he will probably be like the current old bosses.


    Or he’s…a genius, a real political animal. Hidding his cards, waiting to take the power and flush out the old bosses…

    Yes, we can… dream. 😉

    Abhisit will call for elections until he wins. LOL The majority of the people in Thailand just want a free handout. If he wants to win, promise to give the rural majority a handout.

    What I really want Democrat Party Leader Abhisit to do is demonstrate leadership. Leadership! The second item I want from DP Leader Abhisit is to demonstrate his democratic convictions.

    He could achieve both by seriously working with the opposition on the matter of constitutional amendment. Yes sir Constitutional Amendment. Now is the time and not a day longer. And damn those PADs.

    The recent court decision to close those three Thai political parties was a travesty. It was a mockery of Thailand democratic aspirations.

    DP Leader Abhisit should now be leading the charge to amend the Thai constitution to make make sure such travesty and mockery of Thailand’s democratic aspirations will never happen again.

    Tack in tough constitutional laws that specify what protest movements can and, more important, NOT do.

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.
