    Plundered budget

    News, Postbag, Published on 17/05/2019

    » Since the start of the coup and Thailand's dictatorial control, the national budget has been plundered by the military. With so many social pressures supposedly causing the need for a coup, the dictator and his underlings have seen it fit to purchase submarines, tanks, military aircraft, and now Stryker armoured vehicles. How do these expenditures truly serve the people?

    The glue doesn't stick

    News, Postbag, Published on 16/06/2019

    » The excuse that the "skewed scales must have been due to poor glueing during its making" offered by the director of the Chumpholphonphisai School in explanation for the controversial Wai Kru flower arrangements as reported in the Bangkok Post's June 15 edition, is priceless.

    Born to love noise

    News, Postbag, Published on 04/06/2019

    » Daniel Reid in his June 3 letter, "Kill noise monsters", is right. There is a department to deal with noise pollution. I found this office at the Bangkok City Hall about 15 or so years ago, tucked away in a corner, staffed by 10 people, all who were playing computer games when I walked in. I was there to file a noise complaint. None of the staff knew where to find the complaint forms to fill in. When a form was eventually produced, there was little enthusiasm for anyone to listen or help out. I finally went outside to find "someone in authority" to light a fire under these people. At least I got the ball rolling after a few hours that should have taken a few minutes.

    More than 'som tam'

    News, Postbag, Published on 11/05/2019

    » It is indeed good news to know that the Maya Bay closure will be extended until 2021. (BP, May 9). Last year's closure resulted in ecological recovery, which is a promising sign. To be frank, I previously did not think Thais could put short-term self interest aside and cooperate for long-term benefits. It's also good news that they will implement the online e-ticketing system for transparency purposes.
