'Let me serve you, Madame Prime Minister...'
The birthday boy, Suwat Limpatapanlop, was obviously overwhelmed by the presence of so many VIPs at this 57th birthday anniversary party yesterday.
Premier Yingluck was there.Opposition leader Abhisit was also there. And, of course, members of his Chat Pattana Party, were all there as well. Former Premier Thaksin was said to have called him on the phone to wish him many happy returns of the day.
Suwat is one of the politicians banned from politics for five years. He is of course waiting anxiously to return to the fold in May, this year. But then, the veteran politician has proved beyond any doubt that he doesn't need a legitimate political position to exercise influence in the political arena. It didn't matter whether it's Pheu Thai or the Democrat Party, Suwat would always find sufficient room to squeeze into the coalition government.
This picture shows him offering delicious "pork satay" to the premier. "Let me serve you, Madame PM."
