Thai Talk: Say 'No' to charter for democracy. Long live hypocrisy! - The Nation, August 2, 2007
...That's why you noticed no sense of
embarrassment whatsoever when leading members of the Thai Rak Thai
Party, who used to pride themselves as being on the "left" during the
October uprisings, welcomed the arrival of the country's best-known
"right-wing chieftain" into their ranks under the People Power Party.
The former arch-rivals have joined together to come to the rescue of
the country's most popular capitalist.
In case your memory has been blurred somewhat, remember that the same
guy who became a powerful Cabinet member after the bloody, ultra-right
military coup on October 6, 1976 is now poised to head a political
party that comprises mainly Thai Rak Thai members who have vowed to go
against the September 19, 2006 coup!...
