    How beauty breaks down barriers

    “No matter whether she wins or not, Ponce has already raised awareness about gender and LGBT issues in Thailand,” said lecturer Thitipong, who’s also an expert on gender identity. Yeah, but can he tell Stork from butter?
  2. And so many of them seem to work just as well backwards - like the ones you quoted, Tawassot and Kusbog. And let's not forget our old friends, Gen. Thuyarp and his nemesis Niskaht.
  3. Forum 21? Sounds like it could be one of those little-known agencies created to help roll out Agenda 21, the UN plan for central control of the planet's entire resouces - including its "human capital". Mmm. . . A quick check via Google shows that equivalents of the Thai Forum 21 are operating in many countries across the world. Sheer coincidence? Time to do some sleuthing and report back. Meanwhile, to find out what Agenda 21 is all about, here's the link to the official website: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/index.php?page=view&nr=23&type=400&menu=35 For an alternative, and rather more worrying, analysis: https://www.corbettreport.com/tag/agenda-21/
  4. Your snipe at the Gatestone Institute statistics I quoted would be funny were it not so clumsily pathetic. At least I presented some valid, checkable facts. You have produced none that are relevant, and can only offer a "guess" about demographics which "might explain" why so many Muslim men ere enjoying bed and board at Her Majesty's pleasure. The clincher is your bid to cook up a socio/economic deprivation theory in mitigation of the high Muslim incarceration rate, referencing - of all things - a Huffington Post article based on a propaganda handout from the discredited Muslim Council of Great Britain. And you have the gall to call MY source questionable!
  5. Spot on. My Thai sons have to work six days a week and recently one of them told me that because of staff shortages he had been made to do a double shift of sixteen hours. Now I begin to understand why the gap between the haves and have nots here is one of the widest in the world and still growing. This country desperately needs strong trade unions, with the resource to back political candidates who will represent the mass of ordinary working people, instead of just the privilege elite. (Just realised I could say the same thing for lots of austerity-hit European nations, including my own, these days!)
  6. . . . known to have been religiously radicalised while in jail. It is called "Taking the mat". Many jails in France, the UK and across Europe are dominated by Muslim gangs which force newcomers to join their ranks and indoctrinate them into the ways of radical Islam and the Prophet. In the UK, the former head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office has warned that staff shortages are making it harder to tackle Islamic radicalisation in prisons. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32194671 Muslims, who make up roughly 5% of the British population as a whole, now account for 13% of the British prison population - compared to just 6% in 1997. https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3913/uk-muslim-prison-population The Reuters report hints at the religion of the alleged terrorist, but goes to considerable pains to avoid mentioning the words Islam or Muslim. This could be an ominous sign of the media beginning to bend to EU and UN pressure to outlaw any criticism of the world's second biggest religion or its followers. If so, free speech itself - one of the foundational pillars of all democratic societies - is under threat.

    Thailand made red (fruit) wine

    I'm sorry you threw brought that up!
  9. What a timely wake-up call for any Thais tempted to vote the current lot back in on the strength of their reputation for keeping "law and order" in the country. If this is how they interpret and apply the law, almost any alternative is preferable.

    State officials behind 90% of rights violations

    . . . all stakeholders should refrain from violating the rights of others, so the country can go down the path of sustainable development in harmony A strange exhortation from a so-called defender of human rights. "Sustainable development" are the best-known buzzwords used to promote the UN Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 programmes now being rolled out in Thailand and worldwide Opponents claim the plans are a major threat to basic rights we take for granted - such as owning cars and property and living how and where we choose. The international media is uniformly mute on the subject. But protests by disenchanted citizens are growing, particular in the US at the sharp end of the twin programmes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoGPK3YQuKE
  11. many members of state university councils and heath organisation boards decided to quit their posts en masse. For some inexplicable reason, the words "rats" and "sinking ship" come to mind.

    Thai Man Undergoes 30 Cosmetic Procedures to Make Himself Look Korean

    I reckon he'd have a better chance of changing into Rocket Man. Just think how nice it would be to have Donald Trump as a friend.
  13. Mods: I am posting this here, because I could discover no other means of communicating my thoughts on the subject below to the appropriate individual or individuals. I tried messaging "Mods" but my message was rejected. By all means delete this if you so wish and let me know where I should direct my observations. There seems to have been an increase recently in the number of what are clearly advertising features masquerading as editorial. The latest example is today's item on a costly US-made detox kit, under the headline "I survived a 7-day detox!" Can ThaiVisa kindly do the ethical thing and distinguish this thinly-disguised advertorial material from genuine news items with some sort of label, such as "Advertising Feature" or "Advertorial". This may not please the advertising department of your the Nation, who doubtless find it easier to sell adverts to companies softened up with a free editorial mention or two - in the trade we call them "puffs". But it would at least be calling a spade a spade and help prevent further erosion of the Forum's much-cherished editorial credibility.
