Difficult task, huh ? ! I know… I’m tough with you.
But I forgot one important information : the caption (from Nation) for the left picture. Here it is :
Woes-turned-friends depiction : Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva shakes hands with former Thai Rak Thai executive Newin Chidchob to seal government coalition deal Tuesday.
Yes, it does the job pretty well. That’s a good caption ! 😉
But Nation has even more (sweet) details about this new lovestory.
“I would like to assure the Democrat that nothing will change from now on until the day the House elects the new prime minister. This is my gentleman’s promise,” Newin said.
He gave the promise after Abhisit gave him red roses and the two held hands and Newin held Abhisit in his right arm.
Love is definitely in the air. And we can admire the cynism of Newin : “gentleman’s promise” ! Did he give the same to his previous “friend”… Thaksin ? 😉
New Mandala has a good piece to describe the situation (eventhough I disagree with their title) :
With the assistance of a military coup, two party dissolutions, a new constitution, an activist judiciary, royal backing, an ultra-nationalist crisis, six months of escalating street provocation, military insubordination, and an economically disastrous airport shutdown, the Democrat Party now seems to be within striking distance of forming Thailand’s next government.
Good luck to them.
Indeed. Good luck to the “Frankenstein Coalition“.
Now… are you ready (and willing) to discover the… offsprings of this monstruous… mating ?
