I heard that Uncle Jiew has set up a third force


From Naewna, March 20, 2016
Left: I heard that Uncle Jiew has set up a “Third Force.”
Middle: A man in the picture: ..eh.. Let him go!
Another man: Why?
Left: He used to say he would jump on the ‘Mekong’ river but until now… he still hasn’t.

[Refers to former PM Chavalit Yongchaiyudh who claimed that he set up a “Third Force” consisting of people from various groups aiming to end the conflict in the country. However, his claim was quickly dismissed by the junta.
The cartoonist ridicules Chavalit’s former campaign promise that he would jump into the Mekong River if he could not solve poverty in the Northeastern region.]
