On the newspaper: The Nitirat [group] forbids the King to speak to his people.
The caption reads: News that makes feet itchy at the end of the year
[The Nititrat group comprises many lecturers from Thammasat University. They have come forward to propose many political ideas related to constitutional amendments, section 112, and amnesty laws–some that support the aspirations of Thaksin and Pheu Thai Party.
We are not sure of the culture allusions and the joke here. Is “itchy feet” an idiom? Does it just mean that people want to kick someone? What is the significance of “forbids the king to speak to his people?”]
