    How about extending the barrier so that it actually goes beyond the U-turn?  Not so far as to affect the vehicles on the opposite side doing a U-turn but far enough to make it near on impossible for cars leaving Big-C to drive directly across the highway. 

    Exactly - poor road design basically. I am not sure why people are blaming the police.

    Could go for the quick win and have the UK offer free access to Thai products if they offer free access to our pensioners. Huge saving for the NHS, less GOM in the UK and, if claims are correct, Isaan will be awash with money.

    Good idea - have the NHS send folk to Thailand for cheap treatment & possibly burial. 

  3. So Anders accepts there are too many dogs on the loose. I dont think we need to hear any more from him. A cull is in order in certain areas.

    I recall in Baku the authorities announce when the strays are to be rounded up giving people a chance to capture & secure their pets before the strays are picked up. Unlike various other animals like cattle, goats & sheep the dogs are dealt with away from public view.

    fully uniformed officers from two different police departments showed up and began randomly approaching tourists and vendors.

    The word "Police" is used for every conceivable body of law enforcers both in Thailand and elsewhere no doubt.

    Why can't Thai media be more specific? Which departments were involved?

    Higher profile policing is a must here - they need to be seen to get the crime rate down.

    I also seem to remember passengers were taken care of reasonable well a few years back when the giant volcanic ash cloud from Iceland was grounding flight in northern Europe and America for nearly a week.

    That cloud was certainly not the airlines fault.

    Not so for British Airways .............

    I've seen some lists of what is important in Thailand; indeed a falang tourist is below a dog. Natural pecking order at work, now move along.

    Exactly..............locals too worried one of the dogs is an ancestor to cull them. The locals are more aware of the risks from these beach dogs.
