Thaksin: This rubbish group wants to overthrow our regime!!!
Newspaper headline: White mask wants to bring down Thaksin’s regime. [referring to the anti-government protesters who wear Gay Fawkes masks]
Sign in the background: Jao Moon Muang regime
[Some supporters of Thaksin contend he is the reincarnation of a royal ruler, named Jao Moon Muang, from the Lanna dynasty. This is used by his critics to point out the overarching ambitions of Thaksin and his family.
At left PM Yingluck is putting on make up. Thai critics of the government have tried to portray her as vain and ditzy.
At right, Thaksin’s other sister Yaowapa Wongsawat is eating rice. This is supposed to symbolize how the Thaksin political group is profiting from the government rice pledging scheme.]
