Even North Korea laughs at us

From Manager, March 21, 2013
Paper headline: Maew prepare to push Je Doh to the premiership.
[‘Maew’ is nickname of Thaksin Shinawatra, and ‘Je Doh’ refers to Yaowapa Wongsawat, sister of Thaksin and wife of former prime minister Somchai Wongsawat.]
Kim Jong-un: Father passed [his power] forward to a son is still OK… But there, he passed the premiership to every sister one by one, then to his son. What a damn country! Ridiculous!
Caption: Even North Korea laughs at us
[Kim Jong-un, the current ruler of North Korea, is part of a hereditary communist leadership. Here the cartoonist ridicules the governments controlled remotely by Thaksin–who has installed his brother-in-law as PM (Somchai), his non-politician sister as PM (Yingluck) and next might appoint his elder sister Yaowapa who was just recently hastily elected MP.
Thaksin’s son, who has entered into the political debate via his Facebook account, is thought to be another Shinawatra who could be trusted with the premiership in the future.]
