    News: Re: May urges PM to lift party curbs

    One can only assume that the promised election will be yet another rigged farce as was the referendum on the Constitution.......criticism of the regime or dissent will not be tolerated. How can there...
  3. News: Re: Government incapable of ending graft, says poll

    The Thai people have become so inured to corruption that they accept it as normal. To tackle corruption the first priority would be to educate the people and change this mindset......instead of...
  4. News: Re: Police draw out detention of pro-election demonstrators

    Public debate, criticism of the junta and demands for an election continue to grow. It may take time, but I dont see this ending well for either the Thai people OR the junta. Those clinging to power...

    News: Re: Media urge regime to scrap press curbs

    Any military dictatorship which has usurped democratically elected government simply cannot tolerate criticism, complaint or even accurate reporting of their activities. I dont see freedom of the...
  7. News: Re: Landlords kick up fuss over new regulations-new rights for tenants.

    Some of the provisions in the new law do seem fair and reasonable while some others do unduly favour tenants. It would have been much more sensible to have a consultation process to allow all...
  8. News: Re: Premierís songs fail to strike the right chord with the people

    I think there were a couple of words too many in Prayut's promise.....a more apt quotation would be "stand strong and never leave". Instead of railing against his critics, a more sensible person...
  9. News: Re: First day of Songkran claims 39 lives and 461 injuries in road accident

    Songkran has deteriorated from a lovely and peaceful festival and celebration to a drunken rampage. What started out as a simple blessing of sprinkled water has become an excuse for drunken louts to...
  10. News: Re: Prayut Ďcanít think of any PM candidatesí other than himself

    Considering the range and depth of talent and ability across the political, academic and military spectrum of Thai society, Prayut's statement speaks volumes about the mans ego. It is often said of...
  11. Re: Thai Airways Limits Passenger Waist Size for Business Class on Boeing Dreamliner

    Perhaps fortunately, I cant afford to fly business class, so my fat bum should not get me into any trouble....:P
  12. News: Re: Prayut Ďcanít think of any PM candidatesí other than himself

    Well, that pretty much tells us how the election is going to go.

    News: Re: Prayut 'willing' to be outsider PM

    I suppose it wouldnt be the first election ever rigged, but Thailand has a long history of the redshirts winning, only to be later overthrown by court process or a coup. It would not surprise me to...

    News: Re: Prayut 'willing' to be outsider PM

    The REAL question to be asked at this time is whether Prayut is "willing" to accept anyone other than himself to take the position of Prime Minister after the election.
  17. News: Re: NACC set to investigate Prawit as lavish watch criticised on social media

    This story is an escalating farce....."possession is nine tenths of the law". Surely NOBODY would go around "borrowing" a large collection of expensive watches/jewelery from assorted friends or...

    News: Re: Thaksin and Yingluck show up in Tokyo

    Whether you love him or hate him......those comments are right on the mark. Military rule and human rights have always been mutually exclusive.

    News: Re: Government urged to blitz corruption

    Thailand is like the Biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah........ where do you find "12 just men" to investigate the corruption?
  20. News: Re: Probe found 88 million baht has been embezzled from fund for poor students

    So, the poor dear missed out on her pension?........ with 88 million baht in her pocket, I dont imagine she would be too concerned about that.
  21. News: Re: NACC set to investigate Prawit as lavish watch criticised on social media

    In any democratic country, a military coup is quite simply sedition and treason and the perpetrators should be held to account for those crimes. If Thailand is ever to get beyond this cycle of quasi...
  22. News: Re: Plan calls for mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards

    The government collects sooo much information these days, I wonder if there is any evidence that they actually USE IT.....or is the mere collection activity just for show and to cause inconvenience?
  23. News: Re: NACC set to investigate Prawit as lavish watch criticised on social media

    None of these military usurpers of power in Thailand will ever go voluntarily - they will need to be kicked out if ever a free and fair election can be held in the Kingdom...... and that wont happen...
  24. News: Re: Plan calls for mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards

    One has to wonder if some of these ludicrous and onerous "initiatives" by the government are not just mechanisms to create jobs for people who would otherwise have nothing to do?
  25. News: Re: Probe found 88 million baht has been embezzled from fund for poor students

    How many times in the past have we seen this type of corruption exposed? We usually get a big spash in the media, there are numerous investigations, officials are stood down and/or transferred but we...
  26. Opinion: Re: Is Corruption Too Deep Rooted into Thailandís Society to Fix

    I think the simple answer to the question posed by this thread is "YES"!
  27. News Update: Re: Red Bull Chief Surrounded! Warrant sought after fail to show.

    I remember a case a couple of years ago where factory workers were being cheated and underpaid by their employer. One woman took her timecard to the police as evidence to lodge a complaint and the...
  28. News: Re: NACC set to investigate Prawit as lavish watch criticised on social media

    This is the guy who said he would resign if the people did not want him. As with all the regime, what they do and what they SAY they will do are poles apart. The Thai people have a gargantuan task...

    News: Re: Prayut appeals for more time at the helm

    Too late......his record speaks for itself and "the people" are clamouring for a free and fair election. Prayut refuses to give the people what they want, so hopefully, this appeal of his will also...

    News: Re: Indefinite poll delay possible

    I would not hold my breath waiting for a poll that may never eventuate......and if it does, will probably be rigged anyway. The vote for the constitution certainly was.
  32. News: Re: NACC set to investigate Prawit as lavish watch criticised on social media

    Naturally, no "friend" will tell a lie when questioned........ That would be dishonest.
  33. News: Re: NACC set to investigate Prawit as lavish watch criticised on social media

    What a completely ludicrous excuse......these watches were supposedly "borrowed from friends" and have since been returned. When was the last time any of us borrowed or loaned a watch?, much less a...

    News: Re: PM: Divided nation could mar election

    I suppose that it stands to reason that anyone who is not going to vote for the junta is unpatriotic, ill-informed, does not understand the issues and is a disruption to the harmony of Thai society.
  37. News: Re: PM promises villagers he will consider staying in power longer

    Keeping him in office requires no effort at all......but, getting him out of office.......THAT is quite a different story.

    The fun police are at it yet again. Other destinations would be growing in appeal for tourists. If we want to live in a "nanny state" with restrictions on all that is enjoyable, we may as well stay...
  43. Visitor Warning: Re: Smoking ban on 20 beaches in Thailand from November
