Suthep [Democrat Party secretary-general] explained to the disappointed Democrat executives that it was one of the conditions sought by the Newin faction in exchange for their support for Abhisit, a party source said. Suthep was quoted as saying that, “Without them, we wouldn’t have become the government.” […]
Many Democrat MPs at the meeting expressed displeasure with certain appointees. (Nation)
“Without them, we wouldn’t have become the government.” This sentence shall be repeated again and over again. Other keywords are “disappointed” and “displeasure”… We will probably hear them again in the future.
The government composition is not official yet, but Transports (blank check on a very fat bank account) and Interior (power) will go to Newin’s friends (the defectors, ex friends of Thaksin).
Abhisit can smile, can give as many interviews as he wishes on CNN, he can speak about “unity” and play the Obama Style, he will not erase this stain. This shameful stain.
He’s the Prime Minister thanks to a Frankenstein Coalition.
