Ironically, this tactic is not good news for Abhisit and his puppet masters because the PAD idiots have typically supported the Democrats in the past. If a portion of them voted No then this would hurt the Democrats and benefit Pheu Thai.
For the Democrats to have any hope of not getting totally trounced on Election Day they will need to actually get support from the PAD. This means making up with Sondhi and getting him back on their good side. Unlikely but in Thai politics anything is possible.
But if history is any guide, no matter how bad they despise the Democrats and the wholesale corruption they practice, the PAD stooges will always do what Sondhi tells them to do. They will close their eyes, hold their nose, get into that booth and yank that lever – just like they the way they have sex.
Besides, the problem with Thailand isn’t so much that buffalos, tigers, dogs, lizards or monkeys will be getting into Parliament as the PAD’s campaign sign suggests.

A much more pressing problem is all the "kangaroos" currently in the Thai justice system – especially the Constitutional Court.

Thailand’s kangaroo courts have been and continue to be a much larger obstacle to democracy there and Thailand Needs Democracy.
