Abhisit tells Thaksin: Let's give Thailand a chance

Opposition leader Abhisit Vejjajiva has come up with the latest salvo against former premier Thaksin Shinawatra by publicly asking him: "Please, give Thailand a chance." In an interview published by Thai Rath this morning, the Democrat leader said the country had suffered long enough and that Thaksin should let the country return to the right track. "I believe Khun Thaksin doesn't have any financial problems anymore.I believe if Khun Thaksin admits to his wrongdoings and accept the Thai laws. He can come back under the law and Thai society will forgive him," Abhisit said. He didn't say what "forgive" here means in specific terms. Abhisit added that he and his team are under the same conditions that they are asking from Thaksin "since Khun Thaksin is sparing no efforts against us anyway. Let me say that we aren't thinking about ourselves. We must give the country a chance," he said. Thai Rath's headline suggested that Abhisit was slightly opening the "door of reconciliation" to break through the country's longstanding stalemate.
