Sign on table: Prime Minister
In Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s hands: Notes
Words across the top: Prime Minister refused to answer any questions because she feels sorry for the sign language interpreter.
[Reference is to the no-confidence debate last week. In replying to the opposition’s accusations, Yingluck mostly read from voluminous notes prepared for her in advance. The opposition claimed she failed to really respond to any questions.]

Caption: This time, these cockroaches will not have a chance to eat the rotted crab.
[“Crab” in Thai is ‘Poo’, also nickname of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
Upfront, man on the left is Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Ubumrung, on his right is Foreign Minister Surapong Towichakchaikul. ‘Cockroaches’ is the term critics use to refer to the Democrat Party. The cartoon refers to government efforts to shield the prime minister from attack.]

Across the back: Rice mortgage project
Thaksin Shinawatra: Hey!
Yaowapha Wongsawat: Oh!
Caption: This time, the credit [for doing a good job] is for the ‘cockroaches.’
[‘Cockroaches’ is the term critics use to refer to the Democrat Party. The cartoonist gives credit to the party for its debate performance on the government’s rice mortgage policy. The Democrats attempted to expose Shinawatra family involvement in rice pledging corruption.]
