There is always great danger when politicians begin talk about working together, listening to the opposition or reconciliation. Thailand is certainly no exception to the difference in rhetoric and results- the elected party (PT) is introducing reconciliation bills in Parliament to bring the country back together. And the bills will bring back past PM Thaksin.
I won’t attempt to summarize the three reconciliation bills put forward, but reconciling they are not.
There is a picture from Parliament as the opposition (Dems) react to news of a vote on the bills. And the yellow shirts (of airport closure and instigating the coup that drove Thaksin from office fame) have taken to the streets outside Parliament.
Power, many and responsibility are not going to be reconciled through these bills. And hard to see how this is good for Thailand.
