I no longer live in Bangkok.

Yes I can see that, just curious why you moved. If it had something to do with the serious pollution problems in the big city.

Alot of the responsibility falls directly on the shoulders of the hapless and incompetent army. They have no business running the government. They hire based entirely on cronyism, and merit is never a consideration. So, you end up with people occupying important offices, who have no idea what they are doing. When it comes to public safety, occupational safety and handling of dangerous materials, it is a miracle this does not happen more often.

 

Blame Prayuth. It is entirely on him. He wanted the job so desperately. Now, he has to take responsibility for the people.

Porntipa Taweenuch is the port director did the current government appoint her or do you not know what you are talking about again.

Sri Racha?

 

You're MILES away.

The port lies in the amphoe of Sri Racha. Perhaps I live in the port itself!

Nah, it was work-related. Though the [perceived] lower pollution in Chonburi as opposed to Bangkok was an added bonus.

Like you need to ask?

 

But to argue spidermike's point a bit further; why is the junta ruling the country? Because of Thaksin!

 

There! There's your scapegoat! Not your lack of MSDS and a fire hose. It is all THAKSIN'S FAULT!!!

All I asked was Porntipa Taweenuch who is the port director appointed by cronyism or is she qualified and who hired her?

Are you sure? I mean, really sure? Have you GPS located my computer? I think you might find your assumptions to be inaccurate.

And I was commenting on your pondering if spidermike knows what he's talking about.

And you might find that it doesn't really matter that you were never anywhere near the 'evacuation zone' either.

MSDS would take about a week to read. 

Used for water treatment but reacts with so many other compounds

Doesn't matter really since I have read that Porntipa Taweenuch, the port director, already has all the MSDS's in the world, ever, on her iPhone.
