[“Poo” or “crab” in English is nickname of Yingluck.
Here, Red Shirt leaders Nattawut, Thida, and her husband Weng parrot the Thaksin party line.
First they extolled Yingluck for months, comparing her to Aung San Suu Kyi for her courage in facing a court verdict over her actions as prime minister.
After her surprise disappearance, there was confusion from Thaksin supporters who struggled to quickly shift their point of view to saying Yingluck was right to flee because she was being treated unfairly.]
