On Wednesday, September 11th 2013, at the press conference of the United front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), Mr. Thanawut Vichaidit, spokesperson of the UDD, warned Southerners about the Democrat Party continuous scheme of using the rubber protests to discredit the government. Mr. Thanawut said that the Democrat Party wanted nothing more but to cause trouble in the South in an attempt to overthrow the government with a complete disregard of the wellbeing of the citizens in the South who are largely their own supporters.
“The Democrat Party should find a new leader and get rid of Mr. Abhisit Vejjajiva if they really want to win the next general election. They should stop trying to dissolve the parliament and closed down the southern traffic for their own gain. Think about your supporters in the south who are going to suffer more than anybody if you going to keep this charade going,” said the spokesperson of the UDD.
