Rice farmer and the cobra

From Thairath, February 8, 2014
Cartoon title: Rice farmer and the cobra (the abnormal version) [‘Rice farmer and a cobra’ is an Aesop Fable of a rice farmer who saved life of a dying cobra who is dying from cold weather by keeping it warm in his arms. The warmth from farmer’s holding makes the cobra regain its strength, and bites the farmer before slithers away. The poor farmer dies of the cobra venom.]
Head of cobra is Suthep Thuagsuban, secretary-general of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
Suthep: Tweet, tweet… Love rice farmers so much.
On cobra: PDRC obstructing the rice pledging project expecting to topple the fovenment
On bags, front to hind: Preventing the government from borrowing from banks to pay the rice farmers; Obstructing rice trade
On paper behind rice farmer: Asking for money from rice pledging project
Phi Nooring: Hypnotizing tweet.
Mouse: Hurting rice farmers

    How Yinglux betrays farmers by barring those poor farmers from coming to talk with her by letting any riot police trashing those farmers after the end of cabinet meeting at Donmueang AFB –
    reprisal ensued – and boycott of Thairath as they keep lying the public through editorial cartoon on page 3 by Sia – Nobody beleives in her propaganda anymore

    PT Speaker still defending the indefensible on rice pledge scandal

    Anti corruption said if Yinglux refuses to come, she should never post her facebook to smear anti corruotion like this – for the case of Khun Mark, at least Khun mark has cooperated with Anti corruption so well

    Now, farmers in Phitsanuloke and Sukhothai are to find the way to survive during the major drought by digging for old treasure troves at the bottom of drying Yom river – get some copper coins and silver bullet coins along with gold ear rings – or old Sukhothai pots.
