Opposing spokespersons laugh together
They are not supposed to be too friendly with each other. Ms Mallika Boonmeetrakul is the opposition Democrat Party's deputy spokesperson. Prompong Nopparit is the ruling Pheu Thai Party's spokesman. They have both been engaged in ferocious exchange of angry words on any number of issues that split the government from the opposition.
But yesterday, they met at the Department of Special Investigations (DSI) undertaking the same mission: to push authorities to speed up work on websites that contain contents that affect the monarchy under Article 112 of the Criminal Code.
For once, they were on the same side.
