Somchai: Damn it.. We did for them… We didn’t even receive one flower.

[Refers to the court’s rulings on cases related to Yingluck and other Thaksin supporters.
Yingluck received flowers and was cheered by her supporters at the Supreme Court on August 1, 2017 when she went to the court due to her rice pledging scheme.
One day after, former PM and Thaksin’s brother-in-law Somchai Wongsawat, former deputy prime minister Chavalit Yongchaiyudh, former national police chief Patcharawat Wongsuwan and former metropolitan police commissioner Pol Lt-Gen Suchart Muenkaew listened to their verdict at the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Officers over the crackdown on Yellow Shirts at the parliament in 2007.
Others, such as former commerce minister Boonsong, first man on the right, and other 27 defendants, will hear their verdict on August 25 on the alleged fake government-to-government rice deal with China.
The joke here is that Red Shirt attention has been focused on supporting Yingluck while other members of previous Thaksin-directed governments have received little public Red Shirt attention.
This perhaps suggests the calculated use of Red Shirts to focus on popular Yingklcuk while leaving other old-school political figures to twist in the wind.]
