Why does Jatuporn say he has to 'swallow blood'?

Thai papers this morning reported on Jatuporn Promporn's comments about his not being on the new Cabinet list. He was quoted as saying that he would have to "swallow blood." That means he would have to suffer the pain of not being recognized by the Pheu Thai Party.
Daily News' front page headline screamed: "Thaksin flies in to clear up Yingluck 3 Cabinet chaos."
Thaksin Shinawatra, according to another report, is due in the Myanmar border town of Tachilek probably early next month. His arrival there -- and the dissenting voice from red-shirt leader Thida Tavornseth over Jatuporn's absence from the new line-up -- has probably triggered speculation about a possible crack between some red-shirts and Pheu Thai Party's leadership. If that's the case, Thaksin is supposed to calm things down before they explode into a major issue.
