Even if Suthep Thaugsuban's comments about how he had been advising Prayuth on rooting out the Thaksin regime since 2010 has a certain element of truth, the revelation is nothing short of bad manners.
Further, the worthiness of his advice appears to be boastful and damaging to General Prayuth Chan-ocha. On the record previously, General Prayuth was bright enough to warn both conflicting parties to backtrack their aggressiveness or else. The warning was not heeded. No, it was not Suthep’s advice but his noble seven-month role in crying for meaningful reform before an election that has put the situation ripe enough for General Prayuth to pluck.
