Hiding Under Their Dresses

From Manager, October 29, 2012
At left, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra says: Khun Tong… the cabinet reshuffle is over… Come out now. [“Tong” is the nickname of Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Kittirat Na-Ranong.]
At right, Thaksin’s sister Yaowapha Wongsawad says: Boonsong… The cabinet reshuffle is over… Come out. [Boonsong is Commerce Minister Boonsong Teriyapirom.]
Caption: Sanctuary underneath the two sises.

[This refers to the Thai idiom that says wimpy men hide under the skirts of powerful women for protection.
Here two ministers are thought to owe their continuing jobs in government to their loyalty to key Shinawatra relatives. The “two sises” refers to Thaksin’s sisters PM Yingluck Shinawatra and his elder sister Yaowapha Wongsawad, who is believed to be the most powerful person in the Pheu Thai Party after Thaksin]
