Thaksin's son ridicules Abhisit on social media

Former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra's son, Panthongtae, has scoffed at Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva's call for talks to end the political crisis. In a post on Facebook, Panthongtae, who is known as Oak, said Abhisit's video clip seeking negotiations "made him sick".

"It is the Democrats who created problems for the country by opposing the elections," the post said.

"I happen to have found a clip that is much better and more democratic - it was produced by famous Nuttawut Saikuar wearing a tie and white shirt and talking like Abhisit, but better.

"Let's have a contest to make similar clips proposing exits for the country. Dress neatly, fix your hair and face to look good like him.

"We will have an award for any clip that is better than Abhisit's," the post read.
