Big text: Niti Khana Ratsadon – Worajate Banomyong [The names are combined from Nitirat and Khana Ratsadon and from Worajate Pakeerat and Pridi Phanomyong. This is to compare those who wish to amend the lese majeste laws with great democratic Thai figures from the past such as Pridi.]
Small text: Nalinee, minister on a “suppressed” list – A Democrat MP involved with drugs. [this is a way to push back against criticism of a government cabinet minister involved in business dealings with Mugabe]

The headline reads: A chapter of shade or dominance? [They seem to be asking if the new North Korean leader will be benevolent--one that provides shade for those who need it--or if it will be an authoritarian one like his father's.
