Daw Suu is playing to the gallery

Now she is still acting the political POPULAR play to be loved by the ignorant mass who are brainwashed to become ultra-nationalists. Instead of leading the people from wrong to right, she played to the gallery.

I am telling about Zat Thama gyi. She was acting to please the Military and Chinese and NOT for the people. So she tricked the people that if she wish to please them she would play ZAT. She bluffed that as a politician she could not just play the popular politics people like.

Play to the gallery means play to the crowd

To perform in a manner that will get the strong approval of the audience; to perform in a manner that will get the approval of the lower elements in the audience.

Play to the gallery

to spend time doing or saying things that will make people admire or support you, instead of dealing with more important matters Politicians these days are more interested in playing to the gallery than exercising real influence on world events.
It’s great to see Clint still willing to crack gags and play to the gallery, but the trouble with Randy Brown’s debut script is that it curves off target.

It is right of the opposition to play to the gallery and embarrass the government, he said and added, he had been in the government many times and since 1947 he was constantly hearing the statements that Pakistan was going through very difficult times.
