From Manager, January 31, 2016
Laddawan Wongsriwong, an ex journalist for MCOT who is now a Phea Thai leader in Phayao Province: The country is not democratic… so people turn to “child angels.”
If you do not want to be blamed as credulous [believing in superstitious things], you must turn to “father angel” like us.
[Here “father angel” refer as Thaksin Shinawatra. This ridicules Red Shirts for continuing to cling to Thaksin as their patron instead of pursuing their own political goals.]
