Thai people who speak “Siamese Talk”

From Thairath, June 2, 2012
Left: Foreigners thought that when Thais speak “Siamese talk,” it means talk something, but actually it means something else.
Middle: Why do they think this?
Right: Thais propose the reconciliation law to make the country split up.

[Recently, the slang phrase “Siamese talk” has been coined to mean that when Thais say something, it really means the opposite. This is to highlight hypocritical or otherwise misleading statements or imply that “Siamese talk” is unreliable.
Here it refers to the government interrupting a relatively calm political period by pushing “reconciliation bills.” It means that the attempt to pardon Thaksin will result in massive conflict in the country again.]
