It’s everywhere


From Thairath, June 28, 2016
Left: The truth of the bomb detector GT200 is that if you use it for a right objective, it will be a most effective tool.
Middle: Man on the left: What do you mean?
Man on right: If you used it to detect…
Right: …the country’s corruption projects conducted by politicians… If the detector points in any direction, then you can find it [corruption].

[This refers to a scandal of the fake bomb detectors purchased by Thai military. In the cartoon generals seem to be defending the purchase as they have done in the past. The cartoonist’s joke reflects the prevailing Thai view that corruption is a universal norm in politics.]
