    Burkini ban is ridiculous

    News, Editorial, Published on 05/09/2016

    » The French government's decision to create an uproar over women who cover up on the country's beaches was always going to be trouble. In a way, the ban on the so-called "burkini" bathing wear is reminiscent of the equally misguided attempt by our own government to ban Islamic head wear in schools. Such state interference is not just unnecessary but divisive. The Paris government would be wise to consider the lessons learned in Thailand, accept they were wrong and abandon this poorly conceived law.

    News, Editorial, Published on 05/04/2016

    » It is unclear why authorities in the South have pushed a project for a new Buddhist park in Pattani province. Indeed, as of yesterday at least, provincial officials had provided no specifics. The central government seems confused but it is crystal clear that local people have grave doubts, and have spoken about them clearly.

    Too little too late

    News, Postbag, Published on 21/10/2018

    » Re: "THAI 'sorry' as pilots snag 1st-class seats", (BP, Oct 20). The apology offered by Thai Airways International president Sumeth Damrongchaitham, for the behaviour of THAI's two pilots, who refused to take off unless two of the airline's first-class passengers were ejected from their seats for the company's off-duty pilots, is not enough.
