They've done this before. Nothing changed and this time nothing will change.

Leopards are incapable of changing their spots.

Do you speak fluent Thai? 

 

Does your country invite foreigners who can’t speak the local language for advice at local government meetings? 

I doubt it. There wouldn’t be much point would there?

First meeting!  I can recall that the taxi drivers didn't listen at the numerous previous meetings, so why bother with another time-wasting exercise!
