Red hot political strategy of the “Invisible hand”

Red hot political strategy of the "Invisible hand" - translated and summarized from Matichon; Column: Vipak Haeng Vipak, April 25, 2008
It seems that the People Power Party (PPP) is trying very hard to instigate amendments to the 2007 Constitution. Article 291 of the Constitution is considered to be one of the main targets of this amendment plan - in spite of there being considerable public opposition. The Chief Government Whip also seems to support the idea of constitutional amendment. We should not forget, however, that the Chief Whip is none other than Chai Chidchob. And also that his Assistant Whip is Samart Kaewwichai. Chai continues to receive the covert backing of his son Newin Chidchob - while Samart enjoys the secretive support of House Speaker Yongyuth Tiyapairat.  
So who is behind Newin and Yongyuth? The ‘Invisible Hand’ is the answer! It is frequently said that present-day Thai politics is greatly influenced by the so-called ‘Invisible Hand’. This "Invisible hand" was said to be behind both the September 2006 coup d’etat and the dissolution of the Thai Rak Thai Party. It was also said to be involved in the political alliance between the Democrat Party, the Chart Thai Party and the Puea Pandin Party. It was also rumored to have brought about the appointment of Samak Sundaravej as the PPP Leader - and eventually as the Prime Minister. It is even said to have led to the return of Chalerm Yoobamrung to a ministerial post.  
Thailand’s current political conflict is actually a war, in which one political camp’s ‘Invisible Hand’ is pitted against its counterpart in the opposing camp.  Regardless of which political faction eventually appears to win this war, it is - thus - absolutely inevitable that the true winner can only be the ‘Invisible Hand.'
