Thaksin: Those puppet MPs Stop… Stop…
On the back of the buffalo: Phao Thai MPs are now changing parties.
Caption: Can’t pull back anymore.
[Refers to Thaksin who is facing the problem of defections from his Pheu Thai Party.
The cartoon calls the party “Phao Thai” meaning “burning Thailand” as the Red Shirts threatened to burn the country during protests in past. It also shows the MPs as a buffalo. This has traditionally been an insult to mean a person is as stupid or silly as a buffalo. However, in recent years, many have embraced the insult and refused to be provoked by it.]
