Re: "Opposition starved on Pheu Thai's crumbs", Letters, December 10.

Somsak Pola suggested that PM Yingluck should invite one or two Democrats to join her Cabinet. It would make no difference. Not all Cabinet posts are lucrative, such as the Foreign minister's post. If that minister had done his job properly Thaksin Shinawatra would have been cosy at home in Thailand. Thaksin is not about to pay wages to anyone of a democratic mindset. If they did not comply with his orders they would be moved. The number of Cabinet reshuffles in two years is proof of that.

Nice try, Somsak, but out of touch with reality.
