From Thairath, August 24, 2013
Left: Somsak: Our democracy uses a majority to settle a dispute.
Middle: Foreigner: You mean that you count MP’s hands when voting?
Right: Somsak: No, we use the parliament polices’ hands to remove the opposition from the room.
(Sent by Khun Nik Pongphoo from San Francisco) [often the subject of Thai editorial cartoons are suggested by readers]
[Refers to the chaos in parliament when Somsak Kiatsuranont, the Parliament President, ordered the police to remove the opposition when they vigorously protested a limit on debating proposals to amend the constitution.]
