Old politicians joining the NRC

From Manager, September 30, 2014
Newin: Dad, good news. Khun Pom will invite you to be the head of the NRC.
Sign on the grave: Chai Chidchob
Sign behind the grave: Teng
Sign on the gate: A grave of the old politicians
Caption: Do we need to dig them from the grave?

[Refers to Gen. Prawit’s connections in Prime Minister Prayuth’s government.
Gen. Prawit Wongsuwan, whose nickname is “Pom,” is regarded by PM Prayuth as a respected senior figure and was appointed to be Deputy PM and Defence Minister. He has close relations with many “old” politicians of the 1980s and 1990s–particularly Chai Chidchob and his son Newin and also Banharn Silpa-archa, the former PM whose nickname is “Teng.”
These politicians or their proxies are expected to be in the National Reform Council (NRC).
The cartoonist laments that these old-school politicians, who had been sidelined by Thaksin dominance during his time as PM, are being resurrected for a supposedly reform government.]
