Keep scoring for reform

From Thairath, September 2, 2014
Cartoon title: Keep scoring
Above the Ta Kraw ball: Reform
On players’ shirts, from front left: NLA [National Legislative Assembly]; NCPO [National Council for Peace and Order] government; NRA [National Reform Assembly]; academics; civil servants; NGOs
On whiteboard: Scores – 900
Mouse: Return happiness to people
[The sport is a type of Ta Krah game where the team has to kick the Ta Kraw ball into a hoop to score. The cartoon appears to hope that everyone will cooperate to enable promised reform. However, the subtext is that most of the players are cooperating with the junta and are likely to enact “reforms” that Thaksin supporters and the Red Shirts are unlikely to appreciate.]
