Hope not to forget the past with the new constitution

From Thairath, July 9, 2014
Cartoon title: Hope not to forget the past
On spine of constitution: NCPO [the National Council for Peace and Order] constitution
Man: Public hearing
Voice from NCPO, from top: Adopt now and amend later; Turn left, turn right [meaning the NCPO can order people to do what they want]; No amendment, but can…
Phi Nooring: Returning the democracy
Mouse: The real happiness
[This expresses fear that the junta-drafted charter will cement the military’s power over politics. This would repeat events of the past when the military attempted to cement their political gains after a coup by drafting a biased constitution.]
