    Could someone cite the "violence perpetrated by red-shirt protesters" that necessitated the crackdown?

    In his defense, he is surrounded by people who have made entire careers out of praising those utterances. It is his reality.

  16. Re: Next government is bound to carry out reforms or faces punishment

    To me, those who use the King's name, to further their own agendas, are the ones that are truly offensive.

    I guess we will soon see The Guardian face the same fate as the Daily Mail!
  18. Re: Next government is bound to carry out reforms or faces punishment

    Actually, it was proposed that the new branch was to be called "the monarchy", although it was not made up of actual royals.
  19. News: Re: Prayut wants Yingluck to fight the cases and not flee country

    In an atmosphere of "reconciliation", and "restoring happiness", all this is going to do is widen the gap and instill more hatred.
  20. News: Re: Prayut wants Yingluck to fight the cases and not flee country

    Yingluck has played by the rules throughout these proceedings. Her intentions have never been in question.

    Unfortunately, it appears she should have stayed gone when she had the chance.

    Krung Kasem, itself, is pretty much used as a urinal to this day. We were treated to a scene of one of the local denizens relieving himself, as we were walking from Hualumpong, to where the boats...
  23. URGENT: Re: Foreigners Must Take 'Thainess' Course to Qualify as Teachers

    I really think there needs to be a short introduction for everyone who visits. They could have everyone watch a short video after clearing immigration and before passing through customs.
  24. Visitor Warning: Re: We Will Arrest Phuket Tourists Who Bring Their Own Chairs to Patong Beach from To

    I think they should simply close down the beaches. They seem to be such a problem.
  25. Re: Next government is bound to carry out reforms or faces punishment

    Early on, in the "reform discussions", there was talk of a new branch of government - a select group that would look out for the King and the country's best interests.

    I wonder how that concept...

    Many peoples behave differently in Thailand. How many people will visit Singapore packing only shorts, tee shirts and flip flops?
  27. Re: Dual-pricing in Thailand: Should foreigners really pay more?

    Some of the temples, in Ayutthaya, charge foreigners. When I visit, with the in-laws, I simply march in like I own the place. I have never been stopped or otherwise scrutinized. Then again, my...
  28. Visitor Warning: Re: We Will Arrest Phuket Tourists Who Bring Their Own Chairs to Patong Beach from To

    They bring "their own" chairs? From Germany?

    I think that, if they insist on enforcing such a thing, they are, once again, targeting the wrong "offenders".

    Sounds like just another means of...

    Threw caution to the wind and headed on down. What a mess!

    The only enjoyable time was the boat ride, from Hualumpong, to the "floating market".

    I will preface this by pointing out that we got...

  32. Re: Dual-pricing in Thailand: Should foreigners really pay more?

    Feom discussions my wife has had, with many different venue operators, many prefer foreign visitors, to Thais, precisely because "Thais trash things up!"
  33. Re: 'New' Floating Market Opening In Bangkok

    Also, Mr Wotton prefers a more "real" market.

    Ironically, Amphawa, the market that many Siamophiles will suggest over the "touristy" Damnoen Saduak, is a complete fabrication.
  34. Re: 'New' Floating Market Opening In Bangkok

    Funny to read the tweets on map link. My guess is that "Chris Wotton" spends a lot of time on ThaiVisa.com!

    It is interesting that they show graphic footage of accidents. But, when they actually show a body, they pixel it out.

    Haven't been to Pattaya market. But, if anything like the Ayutthaya market, it is pretty much "landlocked".

    I think those in the greater Amphawa area are too easily accessed by water. But, then...
