On the cake: Debts from the rice-pledging scheme
Lyric: Competing with the dog to be born… completing with the dog to be born… completing with the dog to be born
Caption: Sing loudly to reach London. [where Yingluck lives in exile]
[Refers to former PM Yingluck’s birthday on June 21. The song uses lyrics from a Thai birthday song. This changing of the lyrics is meant as an insult to mean one is equal to a dog in the value of their life.
It is meant to mock the Pheu Thai’s populist rice-pledging scheme, steeped in corruption and economically not viable, created only to cement government popularity to enable a pardon for Thaksin.]
