Hot and cold Abhisit : “if dissolution makes things better, I’ve no problem at all”

Again… the good old tactic of hot and cold…

The premier ensured the public that his government will by all means do nothing to intensify the situation, saying he never rules out his resignation or the House dissolution, but the decision will be made upon national interest.

“I will not hold on to power. If the House dissolution or my departure will make things better, I have no problem at all,” (Bangkok Post)

Difficult to say if the Premier is sincere or not. As for the “never ruled out”… that could be a small lie. 😉

But then comes the big lie :

Mr Abhisit stated. “But a coup is totally unacceptable to me.”

It’s striking. Where was Abhisit in september 2006 when the army staged a coup against Thaksin ? In the streets, protesting ?

And what about december 2008 when Abhisit was nominated Prime Minister thanks to a legal coup (what I called a bozo coup)?

I know, eventually it’s a matter of terminology… But not only.

When you lose all the elections, when the only way for you is to take power by convincing a group of Thaksin’s friends in the parliament to change their allegiance and vote for you in an horrific “Frankenstein Coalition“… then obviously you have staged a coup.

It’s difficult after to praise the “rule of law”, the “democracy”, blablabla etc.

Independently of Abhisit’s qualities, we shall repeat, over and over, that he was never elected Prime Minister.

He was nominated PM thanks to a huge parliamentary heist. Nothing more nothing less.

So for that matter, it’s too easy to say now that “a coup would be totally unacceptable”.

    Yes, right.

    Well, as we know, with Abhisit, sometimes there are yawning chasms between what he says and what he means and what he does.

    When you have people with no integrity who are prepared to sink to any depths of moral turpitude to secure power at any price, what they say is often dictated by the need of the moment to create an impression, rather than actual belief or position or honesty.

    We have heard Abhisit tell so many outright lies, and one of the consequences of telling so many lies, Mr Abhisit, is that eventually, people don’t believe you any more Mr Abhisit. Intelligent people anyway.

    Anyone that knows anything about body language and facial expressions can look at Abhisit and know him for exactly what he is. If Bedwyr shook hands with Abhisit, Bedwyr would count his fingers afterwards. Anyone who can steal power as he did in order to curry favour with the Army and the Palace fully deserves the contempt of right-thinking people.

    Of course Abhisit have no problem, the guy also have NO clue.
    It’s his patron that got problem.
    Cant have Suthep or Prem step up from shadow to fullfledge PM now, cant we?

    P.S.-180 degree turn around and forget what himself said earlier about protest and government resigning. Yes, we can!

    Bewdryr, yes Abbhisit is a conniving lying politician, but there again who in politics isn’t? Democracy, sadly, is about manufacturing the appropriate big lie that the ignorant populace will believe, and thus you get elected to then steal money and stuff up the country. And yes Abbhisit is a blatant usurper of government because he can be, he allied with the real power here, the army. He feels no guilt.

    In the end who cares, they are all as bad as each other, I dare say the West has, in general, a bunch of bought politicians every where right now that only serve their financial masters, and that isn’t the electorate. In Thailand they steal directly, in the west they steal for their masters and get compensated later.

    If I sound cynical it is only because i am, they are all parasites that disgust my delicate sensibilities.

    Indeed, and the very consistency of their loathesomeness is a guarantee that you and I can write about it and always be right.

    Makes me sick to my stomach, but in the west, it is somehow less… blatant.

    Still, the first few to the wall will provide some badly needed light entertainment.

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.
