Title: Feed them up… then they won’t be disagreeable.
On bananas held by Thamanat: Positions
On bananas held by PM Prayuth: Benefits
On monkeys’ shirts: Seat-allocated parties, small parties, unexpectedly-seat awarded parties
[Refers to Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Cooperatives Thamanat Prompow. He was appointed by the Palang Pracharat Party to coordinate the small parties and keep them in line. Thamanat compared his work of dealing with the small parties in the coalition government with feeding bananas to monkeys. This means that the government has to give the small parties benefits, such as postings and control over lucrative projects, in order to ensure their support. His statement caused anger among the smaller parties who thought his comment condescending. Some parties announced they were considering leaving over the insult which resulted in another round of the Palang Pracharat Party trying to placate them.]
