He Climbed to the Top the Hard Way


From Arun, April 25, 2016
Title: Banharn Silpa-archa. 21st Prime Minister
Deserves his dignity more (than someone)
The man is recently deceased PM Banharn
On the top of the mountain: Prime Minister
On the arrow: Special route

[Refers to former PM Banharn who passed away due to asthma attack at the age of 83. This cartoon seems to say that, despite his many shortcomings as on old-style, corrupt politician (endlessly discussed on the wake of his death), Banharn still came to power via a democratic election. This contrasts with a military leader like Prautyh who simply seized power (coming to power via a “special route”).]
