The old gang gets a crowd I

28 10 2012

For those who were hoping that the rally organized by General Boonlert Kaewprasit and his Pitak Siam (พิทักษ์สยาม) royalist front might be a fizzer, a report with several photos in Matichon suggests something else. As PPT has pointed out, the “old gang” is coming back together and this was a test of support for the old gang of yellow shirts, ultra-royalists, People’s Alliance for Democracy, old soldiers, Privy Council connections and so on.

A Matichon photo.

PPT is guessing that the turnout will embolden those who wish to yet again bring down an elected, pro-Thaksin Shinawatra government. If the undermining continues, we can expect yellow-shirted intellectuals to increase their sniping, more events like this one, and support to be expressed from the serving military brass.
