Start of a better future

Re: "We deserve better: it's time to restart Thailand", Opinion, February 20.

Abhisit is setting the right tone going forward. He is also setting a good example by withdrawing from the top table of a reform group and acknowledging that everybody in politics has led us to the current situation. Finding honest and independent (apolitical?) members for reform will be difficult indeed, and some who have fought in the trenches of Parliament and hidden in the recesses in ministries who know how the corruption is set up and implemented need to be recruited to lead the way. They must be willing to say "I apologise", and not continue the current trend in government of "I? Apologise?"
