A question for Thaksin

Three years ago I asked a friend why he chose Thaksin as his hero.

He answered, "I like him because I hate the Democrats".

Last month, at the Democracy Monument, I asked a few protesters why they believed in and followed the leadership of Suthep Thaugsuban. They replied, "We're alike: we hate Thaksin".

My next question is for Thaksin: "What have you done lately that made millions of Thais turn to love Suthep so much?"
