Election deadline? Suthep says it's June. PM just smiles
If you believe Suthep Thuagsuban, the Democrat Party's secretary-general, PM Abhisit Vejjajiva will dissolve the House by June to call a new election.
And you want confirmation, the PM's chief election strategist Korbsak Sabhavasu would confirm that time-frame too.
In fact, he would even go further by saying that his party's election campaign was being readied for that deadline.
But when reporters met the PM today and the big question was posed to him, the answer was a smile. "It's done when it's done."
And this kind of response from someone who has repeatedly said he won't have any problem with calling a new election.
Perhaps, he doesn't know. Or maybe, he isn't confident. Or perhaps he is keeping it all up his sleeves.
