World: Thailand PM’s best plan to calm Red Shirts: Early elections

  • After Saturday, it may not be enough, though. Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, who’s been feeling lots of pressure of late thanks to the Red Shirts, is considering moving the parliamentary elections up three months in a bid to save his job.
