Yingluck, Abhisit are really talking this time
A rare get-together. Premier Yingluck Shinawatra and Opposition Leader Abhisit Vejjajiva are being briefed by Justice Minister Pracha Promnok, director of the Flood Operations Centre at Don Muang.
Democrat leader Abhisit arrived at the centre earlier today to submit his recommendations to the government. PM Yingluck came out to receive him and led him to join the high-level team monitoring the anti-flood operations.
What's interesting is that this picture was apparently taken by Panthongtae "Oak" Shinawatra' Thaksin's son, who later posted it on his Facebook explaining how the two leaders were meeting to discuss joint efforts to help cope with the country's crisis.
Who says politicians don't appreciate what national reconciliation is all about? The only pity is it takes a national crisis to hit home the issue.
