Defecting from Thaksin

From Naewna, July 25, 2018
Caption: Love has come to an end, even when trying to hold on he still leaves.
This shows Thaksin, represented by an arm wearing a convict’s shirt, holding on to a political party member or possibly an MP.
Above man on right: Party member.
He is saying: Use me everyday; “water, support, gas never received” [a saying that means that a person expected some recompense for their support and loyalty] I won’t stay.

[This cartoon alludes to rumors in recent months that the Shinawatra family either been slow to pay MPs for their loyalty or has stopped paying entirely.
Another reference to the defections from Thaksin’s camp.]
