The burning parties

The men say: We are the same ideology

At right, on former Democrat Party’s member Nakorn Machim’s shirt: Burn Democrat

[Refers to former Democrat Party member Nakorn Machim who recently apologized to Thaksin and Yingluck for joining anti-Thaksin groups to destroy the influence of the deposed premier.
He disclosed a conspiratorial plan of anti-Thaksin groups to destroy Thaksin’s regime. Nakorn’s action is believed to pave his way to join the Pheu Thai Party.
The cartoonist calls the Pheu Thai Party the “Party of Burn Thai” in a play on Thai words. This transforms the party name to reference Red Shirt leaders who called on their supporters to burn the country in 2010.
This is compared to Nakorn’s recent actions by breaking with the anti-Thaksin Democrats and apologizing to Thaksin. This is thought of as if Nakorn is “burning” his former party.]
