A LOT of leave!


From Thairath, March 7, 2017

Title: Good people… carry a basket.
Two men at top right (we think the man at top right is Pronpetch Wichitchochai, NLA president):
On basket: Receiving incomes from various posts
On ribbon worn by the man at right: NLA [National Legislative Assembly]
On ribbon worn by a man next to left of him: Civil officer
On his shirt: NLA
On basket on the floor: Application for leave. Don’t skip voting.
On the papers in the basket: Application for leave
On the shirts of men at left: NLA
On his basket: Application for leave. Don’t skip the meeting
On papers in the basket: Application for leave
On a basket held by man at far left: Correct application for leave as said by the President.
On papers in the basket: Application for leave
On his shirt: NLA
On his ribbon: Civil officer
On basket held by a man at top left: Application for leave. Don’t skip the meeting.
On papers in the basket: Application for leave
On a basket in the front right: Salary from people’s taxes
Phi Nooring: The world’s most awesome application of leave. In 1 year, you can take a leave for 5,836.
A mouse: The privilege group.

[Refers to the scandal of PM Prayuth’s brother Gen. Preecha Chan-ocha who was found to not be attending any National Legislative Assembly meetings despite drawing a salary for it. This was explained away by the government who said the proper applications for leave had been filed.
Critics have called on the NLA’s secretary-general to be brought up on dereliction of duty charges for approving as many as 5,836 applications for leave for the assembly–all for seven NLA members in one year.]
