Nationmultimedia.com has a live update on PAD movements as the group prepare to move towards government house. Key unions have joined the protest and various photos depict lines of riot police making final preparations.
Tensions are high, and amidst all of this Chavalit Yongchaiyudh has helpfully suggested that Samak could resign to ease the situation or a coup could achieve the same.
Of course, in either of these situations we would then need someone to step in and aid “national reconciliation”. Perhaps someone with both military and political experience. Perhaps Mr. Chavalit has someone in mind?
