« on: June 04, 2018, 10:48:04 AM »

Amid tears, he joins action coalition party; says clamour of masses forced him to change his mind

VETERAN politician Suthep Thaugsuban, whose street protests against the Yingluck Shinawatra government paved the way for the 2014 coup, yesterday did a dramatic U-turn, breaking his famous vow to never return to politics.

Far too divisive a figure. Blood on his hands, still under investigation for corruption and complicit in the coup.

It's going to get nasty.

Not about Suthep himself but also of interest - from the BKK Post :-

''The cancellation of the long-promised meeting this month between the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) and political parties is a worrying development. Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam rushed in to assure that there will be such a meeting, eventually. This delay is a serious matter. Mr Wissanu, backed strongly by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, said the NCPO-politicians meeting would bring an end to the ban on political activities. The indefinite delay on this meeting thus keeps the public in the dark about just what the government and the junta are up to''.
