Poll: Suthep playing political game
A majority of people think Democrat Party MP Suthep Thaugsuban was playing political games when he claimed former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra sent middlemen to sound out the party about joining in a national government with Pheu Thai in exchange for not opposing the charter amendment bill and reconciliation bills, according the results of a Suan Dusit Poll released on Wednesday.
