All safe

From Thairath, October 19, 2020
On sleve: State of Severe Emergency
On hand: State of Emergency for COVID-19
On a knife: God of Death
Phi Nooring: Hidden coup
Mouse: Parliament’s power
Caption: We believe in the parliament system [this is sarcastic as it shows the government coalition parties smugly held in power by various states of emergency]

[This refers to the dissatisfaction with the parliament for their work on dealing with the current situation. Thailand has been a State of Emergency because of COVID-19 which stalled the protest movement from earlier this year. The government then imposed a “State of Severe Emergency in Bangkok” due to the protests that targeted the monarchy as well as the government. To the opposition, this seems like a coup as all power is under the PM and not in the parliament as it should be.]
