A cobra in the boot with a pigeon

Title: A cobra in the boot with a pigeon

[Refers to the latest draft law on the regulation of the media. The cobra in the boot refers to the junta’s action on betraying and attacking the media. The white pigeon is the symbol of the Thai Journalists’ Association. We are not sure what saying or idiom the cobra refers to. Thai folklore has many negative allusions to cobras including one about a kind farmer who helps a cobra, but later the cobra returns his kindness by killing the farmer.]
