If the brawlers were indeed British, then, yes, the Brits were displaying thuggish behaviour whilst abroad, which, regrettably, is not that uncommon once they have had a few too many.  However, when the article appeared to claim that the locals, presumably meaning Thais, tried to stop the fight and were, therefore, some kind of heroes, that was stretching things just a bit!

 

To the poster who implied that the fight was more like a sissy brawl than anything serious, I would suggest that any one of those bare knuckle blows could have caused one of the combatants to lose an eye, or even worse, to die if hitting his head on the pavement when falling.  Still safer, of course, than using guns or knives.

I see two drunken idiots falling around trying to fight, the headline makes it sound like there was a riot

 

 

Personally I would label this as one of the much talked about "false news" stories we are exposed to more and more

 

Is there nothing more important to report than this garbage "non news"

 

seriously

Agreed.  Exaggeration in articles is everywhere, whether it is a forum or many  international news sites. The crazy thing is that many people don't look past the headlines and jump to false conclusions as a result. Some of the exaggerations are to increase traffic to monetised websites, other exaggerations and false stories have a more sinister agenda...

This is probably why so many local Thais in places like Hua Hin and Pattaya often have that look on their faces that says "oh no, not another foreigner" rather than the usual welcoming Thai smile.

: What about a fight between one local and a foreigner, when the 5- 10 friends of the local then almost kill him? Was there, done that.

I live in Hua Hin. This is the same area where the UK woman was beaten up by Thai gangs and the video went viral all around the world.

 

And the same area where the Hua Hin bombing occurred and a Thai woman was killed.

 

The police have been closing the Binabaht area at about 00:15 the last few days because the police don't want more negative news coming out of Hua Hin.

 

You can see the women in the bars trying to get them to stop because they know all the bars will be closed down for the night if these two drunk morons are allowed to continue.

 

The biggest "culture shock" I experienced moving to Thailand was the extremely low class farangs you see everywhere in Thailand. 

 

And it is very telling that many TV people comment here how this is common place in their town back home.

 

seems to be common place in your home town mate 5555
