Thai Editorial Cartoon: Can’t Figure Out How to Raise Rubber Prices

Boy: Admit it, Pi Ten… It’s over the heads of buffalo herders like us…

[Man in red shirt is Deputy Agriculture Minister Nattawut Saikua, nicknamed Ten. As a Red Shirt leader, it is believed that he received his cabinet level post as a reward for putting his life and freedom on the line in leading the Red Shirt protests on Thaksin’s behalf. His performance in his post and the ministry’s efforts to support prices in the south have been met with derision as most in those areas are foes of the Pheu Thai and especially Thaksin. This further makes fun of him by equating him to an ignorant buffalo herder–an insulting comparison.]
