  1. Hundreds of share-bikes taken home by renters

    There is a record of who last used them, you need to unlock them via an app on your phone, one bike per phone only.
  2. Yeah it was the same years ago when I was a cluby in WA(NCSLSC) as well but has changed over the years.
  3. A more accurate headline....Phuket Tourist Police vague
  4. ‘Torpedo’ turns out to be harmless float

    Could be "part" of an old vane.
  5. Hundreds of share-bikes taken home by renters

    My son and I just used a couple of these bikes at the big park next to Phuket town, FYI, it seems to be one bike per mobile phone, the apps used to unlock the bike, we had a good ride then put the bikes back where we got them from, a pity there's so many idiots that'llt'l stuff it up for others, not just in Thailand.
  6. Wrong, they're not all volunteers, the majority are but not all.
  7. Good to see the media going hard at the government on this, the PPAO are making themselves look more foolish with each comment they make. The mind boggles at the stupidity of these people and how they have absolutely no idea of what's required to be an effective BEACH lifeguard. Meanwhile, The Phuket News has independently verified that several former lifeguards at Kamala with years of experience of conducting surf safety patrols and rescues had applied to the PPAO – and been turned away. “But we are increasing the number of positions available for the lifeguard training from 150 to 230 positions available,” Mr Watcharin noted. “I want to double the number of lifeguards on Phuket’s beaches,” he added. The training, to be conducted by Royal Thai Navy personnel, is now open to all people, not just officials as previously announced last week (see story here), Mr Watcharin yesterday clarified. Asked how many officials had been signed up for the training, Mr Watcharin said, “I have no idea, yet. The deadline for registration is Oct 12 (tomorrow).” Regardless, Mr Watcharin assured those who completed the training “would be ready to work effectively” as lifeguards. “This is only until we draft a new contract (a government tender for a private contractor to provide lifeguard services) and open it to bids in about two or three months,” he added.
  8. Crazy stuff but given that I cant stand smoking or the pricks that drop their butts on the ground I have no problem with this out-there law.
  9. The above articles of no surprise at all unfortunately, really hope social media kicks in and what these clowns in charge are doing goes viral.
  10. Unfortunately I think its has to be a private organisation/s that runs it, all levels of government from the highest ranked to the lowest in the municipalities are as bent as a dogs hind leg.
  11. Wouldnt be surprised if thats exactly whats going on.
  12. Good tv series

    A very good copy of "6 days" available at the usual sites, not a bad movie. In April 1980, armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London and took all inside hostage. Over the next six days a tense standoff took place, all the while a group of highly trained soldiers from the SAS prepared for a raid the world had never seen.
  13. Could really stuff up some poor guy that's being forced to act as a lifeguard when he's got no experience or correct training and is now being forced to act as one when people start dying on his watch, no doubt the moronic officials will be blaming the foot soldiers.
  14. Ofo share-bike dumped in Phuket Town canal

    Read on an Australian news site recently that the same thing happens a lot in there, morons all over the world.
