Suthep's tale not so persuasive

Suthep Thuagsuban reminds me of an Aesop's fable about a fox who loses his tail escaping from a trap and then goes around persuading others to cut off theirs, telling them that it's a burden, and has no use or purpose.

Had the fox had a tail to cut off, he would have had credibility in his efforts to persuade others. The same goes for Suthep: had he been an activist and had no vested interest in politics, he would have had my support. Sorry, uncle Kamnan.

Meanwhile, if you want to eradicate Thaksin regime, go to the voting booth this Sunday and vote Pheu Thai out. Simple, isn't it? Much easier than Suthep's "reform" and "People's Council".
