Weird some local punks kill a foreigner and nothing happens. 

By the standards of civilised countries, absolutely yes.

 

In relation to the tribal family power structures of Koh Samui, which are entwined with all pseudo-government power structures on the island, not weird really, to be expected.

Not nonsense at all. The amount of deaths of British citizens in Thailand has been in the main UK press. This adverse publicity will put UK citizens from travelling to Thailand especially given the distance and expense.

 

Nonsense.

 

There have been cases like this in the press and media for decades, you don't remember the young British women raped and murdered on beaches here?

 

Stories like this will have zero negative effect on tourist numbers from any country.

 

Just because you wish it to be, just make it anyway true.

 

Sorry.

In what is considered a civilized country its nothing short of astonishing.

 

Its when topics such as this come round that the Thai Visa apologists tend to take a few days off and pretend its not true!!

Tourist numbers may be up in the future but it will be the non spending Russians and Chinese.

Which is exactly what has begun to happen.  Throw the exchange rated into the equation and it bodes badly, but then again, so much of the bad press has been very avoidable so they only have themselves to blame

Sorry that the mother has given up. Must be a horrible feeling.
I would have expected more from German officials, be that embassy or foreign ministry.

Please understand that these bloodsuckers who have cooshy Embassy positions have got their jobs by assuming other positions and really don't give a rats ass about the taxpayer who is paying for this bastards salary to be in an air con office when he is not on lunch break getting a BJ down the street. And YES, this comes from personal dealing with the Canadian Embassy in BKK. The pricks won't even get off their asses to talk to a citizen who is paying their ill gotten wages which will soon turn into a Pension to die for, not like the miserable Pensions regular folks have to live on.

I do know that while the TAT give us a rosy picture every month with their facts and figures about the numbers of visiting tourists (that amazingly NEVER go down!), the fact is that I have never seen the streets and bars so deserted, and every bar owner and restaurant owner that I know says the same thing. Of course it may be that all the tourists are travelling to the likes of Esan or the Northern provinces to discover the real Thailand! :cheesy:

The fact that Germany doesn't even seem to care about it just shows how utterly useless these embassies really are.  They are never there when they are needed by their citizens. 

 

Look at these three little shits, the one on the left wouldn't survive for more than a minute in a fight.

Utter nonsense.

 

People have been saying the same for years. 

 

Tourist numbers will be up again next year as people flock to Thailand. 

 

 

That that angers you will not make a jot of difference. 

Not from Europe or the USA numbers are way down but others who cannot read English will come for a short time then what do you do? TAT will still say numbers are up when the place is empty once a liar always a liar I think the phrase is.

No matter how much the bitter and angry farangs want Thailand to fall flat on its face, it just isn't going to happen.

 

Sorry. 

 

Most probably pay a Thai a salary just to live with them. #bitterpilltoswallow

To be fair, you sir, sound like the one with issues.

 

To fall flat on its face is an interesting phrase to use seeing as it has nothing to do with the current topic being discussed which concerns the significant drop in tourism.  Again you are behind the times because to numbers have already dropped and theres no sign of a change
