This quote is translation of series of tweets in Thai language from @can_nw, editor of the Nation Weekend edition.
"last fews yrs, Yingluk isn't just a lill sis to Thaksin, she's been a real-estate person and work with the public through Thaicom foundation. This last 2 years, people in provinces see her more often in sporting event as big sponsor of 'Thaicom FA cup,' knock-out football league of Thailand. Beside the public sport events, education is also main activity of Thaicom foundation, with Songsak Premsuk working along side.
Songsak Premsuk is a childhood friend from SuanKularb school, founded 'Mathbox company' that did advertisement for Thaksin since 1991. Then Thaksin jointly own, changed the company's name to 'SC Mathbox,' the company was behind marketing of Thaksin election campaign in 1997.
in year 2001, SC Mathbox made the advertisement campaign for Thai-rak-Thai party, the one came with populism campaign that received votes beyond expectation. Songsak was managing ITV for Thaksin for a while, now he is overseeing 'Voice TV' for Oak (Thaksin's son), and helps out at Thaicom foundation.
Yingluk's image with PueThai leaders during 'compromising' time, believed to came from SC Mathbox's idea that Thaksin trust. Thaksin pick Yingluk to be the country's leader that will lead Thailand to unite, because she can talk to any power group.
In present front-liners group, Yingluk is very close to Gen. Anupong Paojinda, from the time when Samak Suntoravet was Defence minister. If you could remember when Thaksin was back in Thailand, he went to funeral of Gen. Anupong's mother, Yingluk was the co-ordinator.
Selecting Yingluk ,is to solve the problem that 'green color' might be PueThai party's obstacle to form the govt."
So here is a piece of my mind:
if YOU, the old-fashion yellow, hope for the coup to happen if PueThai win (because your 'vote NO' campaign help PueThai to win). RE-THINK, the coup might not happen as you wish!
The real Democracy is learning to leave with what the majority agree. If you don't like it, wait until it's your turn, you come out, you help campaign for ones you think deserve it, then cast your vote.
I know it sound naive, sound idealistic, but that's how real DEMOCRACY should be.
