A grossly offensive – and predictable – response

How much more damage will he be allowed to create in this position? He would be a popular success to entertain the crowds in a TV show like "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?"

Prawit is such a dinosaur, time for him to become extinct.

The captain is the one who has total responsibility for a vessel. It is his decision and his decision alone as to whether the vessel leaves the port and if the passengers are adequately protected

it is the responsibility of the Thai government to ensure that humanitarian assistance is provided to the victims. As to the issue of accountability, that can come later.   

Or not come at all.

What can be done to MAKE the Prayut regime accountable?

Nothing legally as it has a constitutional right to amnesty for any and all actions that would include negligence.

Maybe the general is still grieving for his own dead friend these things take time a lot of time. 

Ha ha! Brilliant! One of the wittiest and funniest comments I've seen so far on the Prawit-and-his-watches affair!

I think you mean ENFORCE and MANAGE.

 

Responsibility to maintain, enforce and manage the driving of a car, the disposal of litter, the sailing of a boat and many other activities  does NOT rest solely with the Thai authorities.     Big Brother is not always there to make sure I wear a helmet when I jump on my bike, so I have to accept some personal responsibility for my actions.  

 

Just as the crew of the Phoenix should have.

Although I agree that individuals do have responsibility for their own actions there has to be a mechanism in place (law enforcement and punishment) as a deterrent to stop them from making those poor choices especially when it affects other people, people could care less if you did or did not wear a helmet that is up to you because it only affects you, (in that case the authorities would be attempting to protect you from your own stupidity) equally the same if you decided to take your boat out on your own in bad weather or went swimming in the sea when advised not too - although it could be argued that you are then putting others at risk that might attempt to save your stupid ass.

 

However, other people would care if you got in a vehicle blind drunk and took to the roads, in that case you are putting others at risk, same applies if you decide to take your boat out to sea in bad weather with passengers on board and tell them it will be fine - in both these situations authorities need to make sure they are putting enough effort into stopping you from making those poor choices possibly by taking the decision out of your hands (especially when you are making money)  with regulations, laws, enforcement and punishment

The assessment of blame to others is a national sport in Thailand!  The fact that there was no enforcement of the existing marine safety laws that tourists rely on for safety is of no importance.  It is always the farangs fault here!

Yes, Chinese numbers dropped substantially at my partners's tour spa company. 

A wall is about to fall on beach road and kill some child,  if any Thai person is interested to notify city hall. 

Safety first! 

Fun second. 

Death till the very end.

Sorry to the victims.
