In today’s Melbourne Age there is a big photograph (on page 9) of protesting Red Shirts. One is holding a sign that reads “р╣Др╕нр╣Йр╣Ар╕лр╕╡р╣Йр╕вр╕кр╕▒р╣Ир╕Зр╕Жр╣Ир╕▓”. This could be translated as “the creep ordered the killing”. It’s a vulgar insult (literally referring to a “monitor lizard”) and one that captures the tone of much recent Thai political conflict. “р╣Др╕нр╣Йр╣Ар╕лр╕╡р╣Йр╕в” is also a crucial code among those who won’t refer to their opponents by name. The Age does does not provide a translation.
