The ghosts of 111 are back!

The 111 former politicians of Thai Rak Thai Party haven't officially come back (deadline is May 30) but already rumours are flying thick and fast that some prominent members of this group are to be named ministers in a reshuffled  Cabinet under Premier Yingluck Shinawatra.

Pongthep Thepkanachan and Chaturon Chaisaeng as well as Suwat Liptapanlop, all former ministers under the Thaksin government, are the three names mentioned this morning in several press reports including one published in Matichon which said the Cabinet changes are now expected to take place in late June and it's all under the planning of Thaksin Shinawatra.

Don't ask the premier about these rumours. She is probably too busy trying to bring down prices of goods and curb inflation to bother with such trivial issues as replacing Cabinet members.
