PM Prayuth: You guys planned and joined hands to give expensive and beautiful watches to my brother to wear… So, people could be curious about how it came about… to discredit the junta.
Caption: Finally found out… the group who planned to overthrow the junta.
[This cartoon refers to the ongoing scandal over the actual wealth of Deputy PM Prawit Wongsuwan who was seen wearing watches with value much in excess of his stated assets.
This scandal has sharply eroded the popularity of the junta as it exposes military rule as no better that everyday politicians.
As the junta has repeatedly warned of plots to destabilize its rule, the cartoonist jokes that luxury watchmakers must be behind the plots as they supplied expenses watches to Prawit to wear.]
