The problem for us all is that the honest ones among us do the right thing but people like this Doyle guy tries to cheat the system and then all of us get punished in some way or another.  Bloody annoying really!

 

This guy isn't getting any westerners punished by his overstay.  Thai Immigration is doing everything possible to get rid of westerners.  It's easy for them when they catch a guy like this.  

 

Getting the American, British, and Australian embassies to stop issuing income letters, and not accepting having your funds in a western bank, has cleared a lot of the expats out.  The TM forms for all movement is helping to clear out many more.  

 

Haven't you noticed, when the Thai police catch a westerner doing even the smallest thing wrong, they publish it in the Thai news. They do this so they can get the Thai people behind purging westerners from Thailand.  They are trying to get the message out there all westerners are bad for Thailand.

 

The Thai leaders want the Chinese to replace the westerners.  The Chinese are used to being spied on, not having free speech or not much of any freedoms.  Having to fill out TM forms for everything they do, report to immigration every 90 days, and jumping through new hoops yearly just to get another one year extension on their visas are no problem with these people.  At least they aren't getting thrown in prison for posting on Facebook.  That will be coming to Thailand in the future.

Not Schadenfreude but more like Bloedmann

Perhaps lacking compassion or empathy??

But I guess that when many observe the rules and regulations, when others do not people feel outrage

When his wife died he went into depression and kept himself to himself.

 

   Somebody wanted to have his bar, place, or anything else.

 

    That wasn't the job of Immigration officers, it was a dirty rat.

Sure hope he has something other than a card board box to come to good old blight to.

 

      Card board boxes , and sleeping spaces are  now at premium rates.

     Sofa  hopping , is a new way of life, in the UK.

More than likely that her family continued to run the bar and he drunk there till they had enough of him and now they have his bar.

He probably never “ owned “ it in the first place and if married maybe the closest he came was if he used the User Fruc provision or something similar.

So the family were probably going to obtain it in the end.

Balls of brass to have overstayed that long.

 

Probably shot his mouth off to too many customers about his overstay situation....

Rather an inane post... IMHO

Plus when 40 drown in a boat - no one gives a shit, the Thais make some half-arsed apology to President Xi and it's back to business as usual.

Isn't that the rational behind TM30/90 day crackdowns, they can now, in theory, keep better track of over-stayers. Stories like this validates immigration getting tougher,  

 

Well....actually no. TH30/90 fines only capture people who are in the immigration system and who, for the most part, want to do the right thing.

 

Those foreigners outside the immigration system will never be caught in crackdowns like that. In most cases, they need to be dobbed in. Perhaps a job for a vigilante like your self?
