In just two years there are 60 unexplained deaths of British nationals in Thailand: report

Recommended Posts

That's just British, throw in all the other un explained farang deaths and see what the figures are.

Trouble is, don't just add in the non British unexplained deaths. Since Thailand seems to be the suicide hub of the planet, add in those too.

Bet you the numbers make some pretty uncomfortable reading

Seems they also didn't include the deaths that were explained, very unconvincingly.

To give the 60 a bit more perspective:

Death in the UK in 2016:

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/deathregistrationssummarytablesenglandandwalesreferencetables

 

V01-X59

Accidents M 8,319
    F 5,729
R99 Other ill-defined and unspecified M 758
  causes of mortality F

390

F00-F99 Mental and behavioural disorders M 16,700
    F

 31,510

And these figures would be  very accurate, ok so now  can you show us the  "very accurate" figures for Thailand?

The news site claims that the number of unexplained deaths “indicate a pattern of criminal behaviour, botched detective work — and, worst of all, police cover-ups”, in a bid to preserve Thailand’s tourism image.

And this surprises anybody?

If there are 60 British Nationals unexplained deaths, a more important number might be that including other visiting Nationals.

Shoddy investigations no doubt, it happens all over, the world,

 

Insurance , is never given a thought and if it is , then so easily dismissed, 

 insurance to travel should be the law the world over,  death coverage being part of such insurance, 

Insurance against death? Well thought out!

Rather ironic that TV are using an article from the DM as the basis for this 'news' story.

 

Yet posters linking to any DM article is seen as being against the current block on accessing the DM in Thailand (even though it can be viewed via certain ISPs and also by use of the DM app, not to mention that other three letter method) and not allowed.:whistling:

Yes this is strange - however I buy the Daily Mail newspaper every day here in Phuket!!!

I always know there was something unique with the britons. Like Thailand is topping the traffic death toll, they also reached the numer one spot in a less positive department. Good Job!

I'm not sure what you want here but UK tourists to Thailand equal just under 1 mill per year.
