    Thammasat, inequality and 'colourism'

    News, Ploenpote Atthakor, Published on 15/09/2018

    » As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For some, the controversial billboards with heads and bare shoulders of ex-Thammasat University cheerleaders are gorgeous, but for many, it's downright decadent for an education institute that has been formative in Thailand's political history.

    » On Wednesday, four of the 13 Wild Boars football team members who survived harrowing days of intense deprivation in the dark Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai last month became Thai citizens.

    Chaiyaphum owed more than lost data

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 11/08/2018

    » In the age of video clips, one video clip is absent. At a time when we're inundated by cat clips, dog clips, accident clips, slap clips, brawl clips, grope clips, chase clips, murder clips -- when we even have clips recorded from the depths of a dark cave where light hardly reaches -- it's amazing that one crucial clip, shot in broad daylight, is missing, lost or made to be lost forever, along with transparency and maybe justice.

    Established in 1946 … that's some time ago

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 29/07/2018

    » It was with slightly mixed feelings that I read the <i>Bangkok Post</i> will celebrate its 72nd anniversary on Wednesday - Aug 1. Any newspaper that has lasted that long and in the process survived approximately 15 coups or attempted coups and assorted other upheavals, deserves a pat on the back.

    Government exploits Wild Boars

    News, Editorial, Published on 30/07/2018

    » The government's actions towards the rescued Chiang Rai football team makes it appear confused and cold, not to mention exploitative. This may seem ironic to some, since the government's stated aim was to protect the 12 Wild Boars and their families, along with coach Ekapol Chanthawong. In fact, almost everything ministers and senior officials have done in the days since the rescue succeeded on July 10 has been poorly planned and executed.

    ACT speaks righteously

    News, Editorial, Published on 18/07/2018

    » Hats off to the Anti-Corruption Organisation of Thailand (ACT) for its combination request-rebuke over the country's two biggest cases of graft. This group quite properly took the National Anti-Corruption Commission to task. The NACC has fulfilled neither its duty to the constitution nor its obligation to the public. It has convinced everyone it is dragging its collective feet on the cases, on purpose. ACT is quite properly calling the NACC to act more responsibly.

    Time to let Wild Boars roam freely

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 14/07/2018

    » If nature was mother, the cave the womb, the divers the midwives, then the 12 boys and their football coach have experienced a rebirth -- the strangest rebirth because, held captive inside the wet catacomb for 18 days, they were reborn after escaping death by the skin of their teeth.
