Thaksin is the nation’s encyclopedia

From Thairath, February 2, 2013
Cartoon title: It’s just Poo’s [Yingluck’s] Encyclopedia
Books from top: National strategy; Politics; Society; Economics; Foreign affairs
In students’ hands, from the front: Amnesty for political prisoners; Reinstate happiness to Thai society; Remedy the affected families; Give the fathers back to their children, the husbands to their wives
Phi Nooring: It’s Thaksin thinks, Pheu Thai acts.
Man mouse: Big brother has to tell little sister what to do.

[This cartoon explains that grassroots supporters of the government are cheered by the news that Thaksin is actually running the nation from overseas. This refers is to criticism in foreign newspapers, particular the New York Times, stating that Thaksin Shinawatra is the real Prime Minister of Thailand, while his sister Yingluck Shinawatra only performs ceremonial duties and does not attempt cabinet meetings where controversial decisions are made.]
