Behind the curtain


From Thairath, June 24, 2015
Left: In front of the curtain
Bowornsak: No revision. Must accept.
On the constitution stand the men hold: Constitution
Men: Revise; Threaten to overturn the draft; Revise the constitution
On the men’s shirt: NRC
Right: Behind the curtain
Soldier: Let them play…
On paper held by the soldier: Road map to extend [our] power
Phi Nooring: Benefits every way [“Benefits” refers to the spoils of power.]
A mouse: Sharing jobs

[The cartoon implies that although there is a disagreement among the Constitution Drafting committee chaired by Bowornsak and the National Reforming Council on the draft constitution, the military control the process and stand to benefit from what happens.]
