The Nation continues their excellent coverage of local politics with this article, which also gives an insight into Thai humor which often relies on word-play and sound-alike words. For instance: Interior Minister Wan Muhamad Noor Matha was dubbed "Broken Horn" because his name rhymes with the word for a rhinoceros' horn. Billed as a law-and-order man, his horn appears broken judging from the recurring violence in the South.
