Party Over for the Buffaloes

From Manager, July 16, 2012
The word on the party sign reads: Celebrations for the constitution revision
Left: Ah!… are we cheated by the Constitutional Court?
Right: Yes… if we understand, the constitution revision will not happen in this lifetime.
The caption reads: 4 days pass… They just realized.
[This refers to the constitutional rewrite the government is attempting to push through that has been blocked by the Constitutional Court. As the rewrite is intended to cement the power of the ruling party and facilitate a Thaksin return, his Red Shirt supporters are dejected over its blockage.
In the Thai world, referring to a person as a “buffalo” is an insult that denotes stupidity. Here use to refer to Red Shirts supporting the rewriting of the constitution.]
