The dirty restroom of Thai politics

From Manager, I knew it by Buncha/Karmin, August 3, 2015
Sign at the left: “Politics” [“Thai politics” is sometimes represented as a “dirty restroom”]
Suthep Thaugsuban: Ah… ah… No, you guys cannot poo yet!! I have already told you to wait until all these restrooms are clean!
Man, left ro right: Oh no.. I’m about to poo now; I cannot wait any longer!; Oh no…
Caption: Right after leaving the Buddhist monkhood… Thid [Suthep] has already committed a sin against people who want to poo.

[“Thid” is the title of people who just left the Buddhist monkhood and here “Thid” refers to Suthep Thaugsuban, leader of the protest group that led to the overthrow of the Pheu Thai government.
In the cartoon, Suthep Thaugsuban is not allowing the other politicians to use the restrooms, which, in terms of Buddhism, is wrong-doing because Mr. Suthep makes them unhappy. His emergence from the monkhood is perceived as part of a plan to delay a return to civilian rule in politics.]
