Unannounced Pheu Thai Policies

From Manager, August 15, 2011
Left: We’ll stop withholding the money of the nieces and nephew – 12 billion baht [actually says 12,000 million] – We really can do it, we can do it immediately. Pheu Thai Party
[refers to the quick and favorable rulings on taxes owed by Thaksin family members who were holding money for him as his proxies]

Middle: We’ll return the brother’s passport — We really can do it, we can do it immediately. Pheu Thai Party
[refers to the moves by the Foreign Minister to change Thaksin status from a wanted fugitive to a traveling elder statesman and return Thaksin’s passport]

Right: We won’t collect taxes from the brother and sister-in-law — We really can do it, we can do it immediately. Pheu Thai Party
[more on the sudden untangling of legal cases dogging Thaksin family members since the Pheu Thai Party came to power]

Cartoon caption: During the campaign, they neglected to announce these policies. [meaning the Pheu Thai Party is owned and operates to serve the interests of Thaksin and his family]
