A new set of medals for some folk for defeating foreign invaders.

Lateral thinking - well done - commemorative coins and the obligatory T - shirts as a sideline would be nice as well.

Seastead structure dragged back to shore by Royal Thai Navy

A floating seastead has today been towed by a naval vessel back to the Port of Phuket in Cape Panwa. Meanwhile the Deputy PM Wissanu Krea-ngam is challenging the owners and builders of the structure to take the Thai Government and Navy to the International Court of Justice.

 

The Royal Thai Navy’s Third Fleet ventured out with a group of reporters on Saturday to inspect the floating seastead, the first of about 20 planned Ocean Builders for the open waters about 22km from Phuket’s Koh Racha Yai.

 

Nothing valuable was found on board the octagon-shaped steel and aluminium structure which was attached to a floating platform.

They are daring them to take it to International Court?  With Thailand's seriously poor reputation in the international community, do they really want to do that?

Heard they might set up a committee and everything.  Much to do about very nothing.
