  1. We as concerned non-citizens can all provide answers or reasons for this phenomena, but if the truth be known there is only one answer and 'Jag" provided it. Thailand needs a real police force that is there to 'protect and serve' rather than 'collect and desert' the people of Thailand. If such actions were formerly and regularly punished (despite the financial status of the offender) with heavy fines or long gaol sentences, instead of backhanders to the police, then possibly Thailand could curtail such abominations. However, this will never happen as too many police officers and court officials are reliant upon their weekly ‘brown envelope’. ALL of the anti-social, discriminatory and corruption problems associated with Thailand are down to one thing and one thing alone, the lack of a genuine (almost) corruption free police service. A police service where one can make a genuine complaint and have it thoroughly and properly investigated and, if necessary see action taken. A police service that is there to honestly serve the people of Thailand regardless of race, colour, creed, status or financial standing, and provide justice for all. Unfortunately, we will never see it in my life time…
  2. I am sorry, I realise I will be castigated for what I am about to state, but hey here goes. Why, simple question, did it take in some instances, some 30-40 years before people realised that a certain person(s) had inappropriately had some form of sexual/physical relations with them. Now I am not suggesting they are fabricating stories, but please do not give me the peer pressure crap…someone does something you do not like you act/react…at the time, loudly. I am sorry, but if it took you 30-40 years (or the thought of lots of money) to decide that what happened was not what you desired…too late. Do you have photographs, original/contemporaneous diary entrees, and recorded discussions with any one (at the time) about the 'alleged' incidents…No! Then all you have is unsubstantiated, factually unprovable and legally contestable ‘nothing’. Sorry…you have had many, many opportunities to act…too late now! I think it is even worse when the ‘affected’ wait, until the ‘alleged’ offender is deceased and has no ‘right of reply’, before coming out of their closet.
  3. OMG, please don't tell me (I wouldn't believe it anyway) that any HISO (Police/Military/Customs/Immigration/Government Officials) are involved in this despicable crime. No, it must be some no-mark from Burriram or Chiang Mai or Roi Et with no support, money or connections…just what I thought! Glad we sorted that out…555
  4. I am surprised at the continued slamming of RTP procedures regarding 'arrest warrants'. Of course they have no time to administer the law, especially if it interferes with their gold shop minding, personal bar management, cock fighting organization, night-club security and the ubiquitous 'tea-club collections; please consider their feelings before you write…
  5. Does anyone know where, in Nakhon Ratchasima, I can buy a canvass tonneau for an Isuzu V-Cross/D-Max 4 door 4WD?
  6. The ‘Call To Prayers’ (CTP) was probably essential in times when followers had no knowledge of the time of day. The CTP being a reminder to people that it was time to attend prayers, similar to the Christian Sunday Morning ‘ringing of the church bells’. However, in an age where everyone has a watch, TV, iPhone or computer the CTP is redundant. Possibly, it is still in use because without it, many would not attend!
  7. I totally agree with this rant…though to be honest possibly all it needs is either a dog license fee for every dog or compulsory desexing. If it is on your land, in your house or you are feeding it you must have a licence, 1000THB for every dog. If it is yours and your are not a breeder and it is not desexed a further 1000THB. If it does not belong to anyone then the government has the right to remove it, it is a stray. Sadly none of these suggestions will be considered, as the Thai local authorities are generally comatose, unless there is a buck in it for them!
  8. I live on a farm in Pak Thong Chai, Korat. I want to purchase 12 'young' egg laying chickens and one rooster…any ideas where I can buy them. I am willing to travel to collect them…just need an idea of how much they will cost and when they will be available for collection. Hope someone can assist… Queenslander
  9. I cannot determine if these guys are guilty or innocent, but I can tell you that . the Red Bull heir is guilty (and never incarcerated, which is difficult when he is allowed to leave the country - I wonder why he didn't return) . the young female who killed 9 on the Expressway is guilty (and never incarcerated, nor did she complete her ridiculous social service - too busy, too far from home) . the Farang/Thai actress is guilty (and never incarcerated though the entry to the priesthood and the kissing of the feet looked good) . the incinerator driver is guilty (and never incarcerated, but his entry for a 'day' to be a monk surely counts for something when killing 2 innocent kids)) Because of this I am confused, I would like to believe the RTP, but their reputation for honest, reliable, ethical investigation practices, leaves a lot to be desired.
  10. But, they are all Mr Rudd's mates…what harm can that be…except that China will own (eventually), like it will in other countries, more of Oz than the Aussies! But what the heck it will soon be a Caliphate anyway…as long as social security payments don't end!
  11. I am with Pimay 1 - crush the bikes…remember some of their HISO parents will still have to pay for them…love it..can't race without a bike!
  12. Why do I doubt that his medical problems will prevent him going to Singapore to attend to some business…or Laos or Cambodia for a Buddhist conference…
  13. Sorry UK Government, you have it ALL wrong…listen to us (TV subscribers) who know…forget the jailing - allow them to go, but then cancel their passports, entitlement to any government subsistence for them and any family members…but MOST importantly REFUSE them re-entry to the country…easy, no daily cost, no daily worries…
  14. Don't fix the f-in problem…just ignore it by closing the street…<deleted>!
  15. I'd like to see that…but sorry all I can see is 'Smoke & Mirrors'…words are worth nothing…it is deeds that count, and this country cannot spell never mind deliver, integrity, service and trust. Waste of breath…'Been there, done that, got the t-shirt and the shit is still the same…
