Yingluck Lies

From Manager, May 1, 2013
Caption: Hey… You just change the name of their capital, there!!!!
The sign reads: Ulaanbaatalae [The last syllable added to the capital name forms a word in Thai once the final two syllables pronounced together — ‘tarlae’ meaning ‘lie’.]

[Ulaanbaatar is the capital of Mongolia. It is where the the VII Ministerial Conference of the Community of Democracies was organized around the end of April. On April 29, Thai Premier Yingluck Shinawatra gave a speech which has been criticized for telling only one side of the story about Thaksin. She praised Red Shirts, defended Thaksin and put the events of the last few years in the context of a democratic struggle.]
