Junta chairman Prayuth Chan-ocha referred to former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra by name Thursday. He habitually makes only indirect reference to the political figure whose influence has been a target of the military regime.

BANGKOK — Junta chairman and Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha today accused the de facto leader of the Redshirt movement of plotting the recent resumption of public protests against his military regime.

After a heated exchange with reporters at Government House who pressed Prayuth to name the person he thinks is behind the gatherings, the junta chief blurted out the name of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who remains immensely popular in parts of Thailand despite the coup that deposed him 10 years ago.

We look forward to the evidence that Prayut undoubtedly has - just a tiny scrap of admissible evidence.

Perhaps the PM does not believe that there are Thai citizens with a sense of moral justice?

From the article, "Prayuth, who regularly posits himself as a selfless peace-maker, seemed to immediately regret invoking Thaksin by name."

Yup!

Even if true there's a way to present things to make them sound credible not ' open mouth without engaging brain ' but it is the PM we are talking about.

Is he a Britney fan, " oops I did it again. "

Alas, a number of posters here certainly don't. Stand by for the usual accusations of anyone protesting of being a bought and paid for moron and/or an out and out criminal.

Four legs good, two legs bad! Welcome to Thaivisa!

A reporter asks a question of a nation's leader and is given an answer eventually.

But don't use what I answered to "strike me"

That will "make it messy again" and it will be your fault as the press (albeit a restricted press)

Surely no-one would say such a thing to a reporter. Gotta be lost in the translation.

I couldn't find a 'slap forehead' emoticon.

The sharp and sustained fall in oil prices is making someone very desperate to be back to the feeding trough...

It's a Thai tie, a blue Thai tie, not a red Thai tie. Red wouldn't send the right message.

The alternative is too scary. Regular citizens, independent of one another, coming up with the same conclusion.

Best to invoke the "Mastermind" theory.

So are you privy to inside information regarding Thaksin's financial dispositions or are you as usual full of......?

One more time:

Please use discretion in your references to the government. Phrases which can be considered as anti-coup will be removed. Referring to Thailand or the government as a dictatorship, military dictatorship or other such terms will be removed.
