Little Sarit

From Thairath, June 26, 2018
Title: Ask to change the cover.
On gluestick: glue
On magazine cover: Return happiness democracy 99.99% [mocking the junta’s slogan]
Mouse: Go inter. [The news goes international.]
Mouse man: The truth from the international media.

[Refers to the Time magazine cover which declared him “Democrat. Dictator.” The issue was not distributed in Thailand–supposedly because of government pressure.
As Prayuth’s term as coup-PM lengthened, opponents have began calling him “Little Sarit” after Sarit Thanarat, Thailand’s quintessential cold war dictator.
The cartoonist shows the prime minister trying to edit the text on the cover of the magazine to something more acceptable to the junta.]
