Yellow Shirts to form party...what about Red Shirts?
I am all for the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD)'s decision to set up a political party instead of returning to "street politics" which may have lost its effectiveness now that the red-shirts have virtually copied PAD's every move.
News has leaked that PAD's core leaders have taken the steps to form a political party, tentatively called "Candle of Justice," so that they could pursue "new politcs" in an open, transparent and persistent way.
PM Abhisit Vejjajiva has said he is in favour of more competition in the political arena.
Now the the "Yellow Shirts" have opted to form a party, the "Red Shirts" should do the same, to avoid being called Thaksin Shinawatra's nominee.
