Thai Education

From Komchadluek, November 5, 2012
On blackboard is a Thai abbreviation of the word “Ministers”
Thaksin Shinawatra: When will you do your own homework? You’re a grown up now!!
[Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is copying the Thai letters on the blackboard. This refers to the belief that the prime minister is a political novice with no faction beholden to her. Thus she does not pick the members of her own government and never does things for herself.]

Cartoon title: Speaking English, second from the bottom of the world list; Speaking human language (democracy), on the bottom of the world list.
A voices from off screen: Freezing Thailand: If I have power, I’d already make a coup d’etat: We cannot defeat them by election, so let’s use a mob to topple the government… [these are statements from Gen. Boonlert Kaewprasit, leader of the Pithak Siam group that is staging mass rallies to try to destabilize the government]
