From Thairath, November 18, 2015
Caption: Take some money off the top, making it like a donation. Is this cheating? Is this corruption?
On the book: Thai anti-corruption – NACC [National Anti-Corruption Commission]
On the man’s back: Justice.
On the paper he holds: Tackling only Pheu Thai Party and former PM Yingluck only!
Nooring: Unable to find the right answer in the book.
Mouse: Good people aren’t cheating.

[This refers to the scandal over the financing of Ratchapakdi Park in Hua Hin. The military proudly handled the project as a show of fealty to the monarchy. Eventually accusations about corruption and funding irregularities led to several investigations as well as charges that the military was only covering up the scandal.
The cartoonist is using one of the Red Shirt perennial complaints–that anti-Thaksin authorities apply double standards, attacking the Pheu Thai Party and Yingluck while ignoring scandals of their allies.]
