  1. The crazy Yingluck scenario few people want

    The whole thing is a complete fiasco from start to finish. Given that none of them can be trusted I tend to view the whole thing as a kind of mafia soap opera, with truly amazing twists to the plot every week.
  2. I would like to think that bars and restaurants would treat us all like royalty, given that there are so few of us left!
  3. ‘Report all corruption,’ says Phuket Governor

    To collect all of the complaints of corruption in Phuket alone would need enough staff to wipe unemployment out nationwide. Sadly, reporting it will do little, as the people responsible for stopping corruption are the very people behind it, making money from it and protecting their co-conspirators.It will be interesting to see how long the queues are though to file the complaints.
  4. Greed is clearly a more important consideration than safety, as these people have shown us once again. They obviously knew the wind was blowing before they took the fellas money, when they should have stopped operating until conditions improved. Accidents with Parasailing will happen again here. Very fortunate only minor injuries this time.
  5. Bunch of bullshit. East Asian figures are up because close to a million Cambodians and Burmese went home to get the right papers for work and every one is recorded as a visitor when they come back. As for the numbers on revenue, educated guess at best and more likely pure fabrication, plucked out of thin air. We all know the major tourist areas are begging for customers. I have never seen so many bars and restaurants closed. Real tourist numbers and revenue are way down, everyone knows it, and lying or manipulating numbers isn't going to change it.
  6. 70 grams of ice? Well, she is going to be a wrinkled old crone when she finally gets out of prison then. That is 50 years minimum straight off the bat.
  7. Mrs. Rodger is clearly not an immigrant then! They seem to be able to claim never ending benefits, without any problems. Those of us born and bred and having paid taxes for our whole lives are not so fortunate it would seem.
  8. Swiss man rolled by lady boy after Walking Street romp

    Given they have printed his name, age and nationality, the time for a disguise is perhaps a little late. I suspect his mates at home will find out and rip the piss right out of him when he gets home. Deservedly so, I might add!
  9. Wayne Rooney banned from driving for two years for drink driving

    At nearly three times the limit, he is very lucky not to be in jail.
  10. Given the Buddhist view on the sanctity of life, it should be a very easy decision to make, and it wouldn't be to push people out to sea to possibly die. I also fail to see how genuine refugees threaten the security of a nation. Maybe you feel that genocide is OK if it doesn't involve you or your family.
  11. Nam Kee Mak Mak might be a more appropriate name for it.
  12. Cigarettes, alcoholic drinks to cost more

    50 satang on a beer isn't so bad. Given the horror story prices I have seen quoted in the last couple of days, I am quite relieved. Lot of people been getting worked up over what has turned out to be next to nothing.
  13. I think the consumer doesn't really give a shit what the extra minimal costs are to the company. The consumer cares about price rises a hell of a lot more than 2%! And the customer is always supposed to be right, Yeah?
  14. North Korea says seeking military 'equilibrium' with U.S.

    Laughable comment and absolutely never going to happen. Less funny is that the situation is becoming ever more unstable and the chances of conflict and casualties is growing ever higher.
  15. Massive raid as "coloreds" targeted in Nana this morning

    200 cops and they get one guy with less than a gram of ice and a dozen or so who didn't have a passport immediately available, while they all passed the piss test. I wonder what the arrest rate would have been had they targeted that many cops on the locals?
