Reference: Samak should apologise over Oct 6 says Suriyasai, Bangkok Post, February 22, 2008
He already has (Samak backs down from Oct 6 war of words, Bangkok Post, February 21, 2008) and he has agreed to all the demands made by Khun Thongbai Thongpao and others including that for the formation of a committee to set the historical record straight. The Prime Minister has never denied that he is just a street-wise buffoon who will never win brain games with the media or debates with brainy guys like Abhisit and the people elected him anyway. The Oct 6 issue is obscuring other more pressing matters including that of invisible hands in government. In the interest of transparency and accountability all invisible hands, whether they pull the strings of the Election Commission or those of he Prime Minister himself, must be made visible and accountable to the people.
