Jakrapob Must Go!By Bangkok Pundit May 25, 2008 12:00AM UTC
Yoon in one his videos* on his blog states that Jakrapob must resign: I have summarised it below:
Judging from what is happening in the political scene, he needs to go. Abhisit says Jakrapob’s thinking is “dangerous”. The public cannot put up with such a long torturous road as it plays out. Economic uncertainties are getting more serious everyday. Jakrapob’s speech was “trying to provoke his political opponents to confront the pro-government factions so a clash could take place”.
BP: Jakrapob gave the speech in August 2007 so how was he trying to provoke his opponents to confront the pro-government factions? Did he foresee the political victory by the PPP then?
A lot will hinge what Jakrapob says at the press conference on Monday, but he has received solid backing from Samak for the moment.
