Thaksin: I am ready to foot the bills
Thaksin Shinawatra has officially moved into the "election mode" and is ready to foot the bills.
That's what he told Pheau Thai Party members in a "phone-in" statement earlier this week. Thaksin said the party's "defeat" in the Sunday by-elections was due to the fact that "we were borrowing other's nose to breathe."
Then, he declared that his party members should now concentrate on campaigning for the next general election.
"We will certainly win big," he declared. He then told his Pheau Thai Party members to go out and visit red-shirt members. "Help pay for their expenses. Then, you can get reimbursements from me. I will pay for everything....except for noodle dishes that MPs eat themselves..."
Is there still any doubt as to who's the real owner of the Pheau Thai Party and at least part of the red-shirt movement?
