Thakin's: My biggest mistakes: Sondhi, Sonthi and Anupong
Thaksin Shinnawatr just can't resist the temptation to talk to the foreign press. And the more he spits out, the more depressing it gets.
He told Asahi Shimbun in Dubai (in a US$500-per-night hotel) that he was getting poorer (by his own standards of course) and was struggling to locate new sources of income to meet his estimated personal expenses of about $4-5 million a year. That's why he said he wasn't in a position to finace the Pheau Thai party and other supporters anymore.
When the Japanese reporters asked him to name the main anti-Thaksin figures,Thaksin mentioned Sondhi Limthongkul and Army Chief Anupong Paochinda and coup leader Sonthi Bunyaratkalin.
