Eliminating the plague

From Thairath, August 2, 2014
Cartoon title: Eliminating the plague
Left, top: Yesterday;
Left, bottom: Bird flu
Right, top: Today
Bottom: Politic flu
On the left wall: Former MPs and senators
On the right wall: Being revoked [their right to run for election]

[This represents widely held beliefs about democracy among Thais–that elected politicians act for themselves without thought of the greater good.
On the other hand, as this cartoonist is usually rabidly pro-Red Shirt and pro-Thaksin, it could be that he is insinuating that the elected are being summarily deposed of as if democracy is a plague like the bird flu.]
