Conspiracy?

6 09 2011

In a kind of follow-up to PPT’s recent post on royalist reaction to the Puea Thai government, a story at the Bangkok Post is worth reading. In it, Puea Thai MP and and red shirt leader Jatuporn Promphan is said to have stated that “an unconstitutional power clique is conspiring to bring down the Pheu Thai-led government.”

The vocal red-shirt leader has claimed the same power clique behind the removal of the Thaksin government is now plotting the overthrow of the Pheu Thai government.

This claim to an “unconstitutional power” at work is similar to that by Thaksin Shinawatra in his letter to President George Bush in mid-2006.

Interestingly, it is the 1st Army chief, Lt Gen Udomdet Seetabut, who has rejected Jatuporn’s claim for “just expressing  his personal feelings.” Udomdet can’t say anything else, but it is interesting that he commented at all. Jatuporn is referring to a clique or cabal that in September 2006 was wider than the military and included elements of palace and business.
