    A gentle look at uniform behaviour

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 13/01/2019

    » Reports that Bangkok Christian College is allowing students to wear casual clothes once a week might seem a trivial tale, but it could cause a few ructions in Thailand. This is a country where even university students wear uniforms and any thoughts about breaking out from this conformity are frowned upon. After all, it might spark "self-expression" which will send shudders down the spine of the education establishment. The next thing they know, students even might start asking meaningful questions.


    The price of prejudice

    Life, Arusa Pisuthipan, Published on 03/12/2018

    » Luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana made an irreversible mistake with its racist mishaps just recently when they posted a series of short video advertisements on social media that made fun of Chinese culture. The videos enraged the entirety of China simply because the fashion powerhouse stereotyped people from different racial backgrounds.


    The joke of law

    News, Published on 01/12/2018

    » The impressively slow progress on Premchai Karnasuta's case for alleged poaching in a national wildlife sanctuary can surprise no one (Editorial, Nov 30). It exemplifies perfectly why Thai people do not trust Thai justice, or rather, Thai rule of law posing as justice. Even when the law manages to be just, it is applied with seemingly blatant discrimination to protect corrupt hi-so types who are members in good standing of the old boys club while coming down mercilessly on the poor and powerless, who correctly see it as being created by traditional hi-so types to keep the masses in their place underfoot. We need not imagine where Premchai would be today had he been an aged peasant picking mushrooms illegally.

    Europe is helping Uber to improve

    News, Leonid Bershidsky, Published on 03/10/2018

    » On Monday, Uber returned to Dusseldorf, Germany, a city it was forced to abandon in 2015. This is a victory both for German regulators and for Uber, or rather, for its new version under Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi. It shows that the San Francisco-based company can actually function as a tech platform, rather than as a taxi business that pretends to be a tech platform.


    Reducing buses won't ease traffic woes

    News, Sirinya Wattanasukchai, Published on 17/09/2018

    » When I saw a news headline last week, saying the number of Bangkok public buses may be reduced to solve the city's traffic woes in the Ramkhamhaeng area, I thought it was just more click bait.


    Theatre of protest

    News, Postbag, Published on 15/09/2018

    » In a country often said to have dual prices there is nowhere with such a great difference as in the theatre of political protest and the price to be paid for making your statement. Ms Nuttaa Mahattana, Pai Dao Din, and others have all come under extreme pressure, had visits from soldiers, spent time in detention and found their futures threatened. Some would say that's the price they must pay for their dissent.


    Electric nightmares

    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.
