Recommended Posts

They must be terrified of all the Chines and Indian billionaires that would flock here if the fee was waived.

Meanwhile, the Association of Thai Travel Agents reportedly played down the concerns, saying visa-exempt stay would be a huge boon for Thailand’s tourism industry.

They're only interested in numbers not the criminal element !

The unnamed source said that since both China and India have a huge population, their nationals were prone to entering Thailand illegally to either make a living or to protect themselves from natural disasters in their own countries. 

Here you have a government official who has looked at the facts on the ground and explained that making things easier for Chinese and Indians to come and stay in Thailand is a direct threat to the country's sovereignty. And there is ample evidence of the truth of this matter: Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar. But the government, nonetheless, is determined to go ahead with this free and easy Chindia policy. On the other hand, despite massive evidence that not enforcing the TM 30 (over 40 years of evidence) rule has no effect on national security whatsoever, it is THAT rule that they have decided to come down hard on. Free and easy for Chindia, and hard as hell for expats with the TM 30. Who is being given a pass and who is being cracked down on? Does somebody have the number of expats by nationality so that we can see who is most effected versus who is not?

The ethnic Malays certainly fear the Chinese more than the Indonesians, Bangladeshis and the Burmese because of the dominance of the Malaysian Chinese in the economy.

And because during the Malayan Emergency it was primarily Malayan Chinese who dominated the Communist insurrection.

And that country is? The Vatican city?

 

As it stands, all of us as it feels have been demonized so it really cannot be any of our previous home countries of where we are from. As it feels now is as being perceived as an undesirable criminal being ostracized for looking left, or then looking right as the bank account may not meet their high rolling standard. Or on a more superficial line, heavily scrutinized and badgered by the immigration because...…... ? Xenophobic or a feel that of superiority.

 

Yeah I understand that the Thai race is more superior and greater to all the other races. I just keep on forgetting it as my brain is not as good as it used to be. Maybe I need to read Moby <deleted> again. Or was that to watch the series of Flipper again? Such a contemplation.

The age of consent in the Vatican city is 14 and is one of the most corrupt places on the planet.

I understand the political reasoning - the Chinese government will never ask awkward questions about democracy

Bingo. That's what matters, even more important than the tourist dollars.

Perhaps FM reading too much TV!

The chinese+indians dont care much about free visas, as much as they care about air fares. They'll keep coming much to the sadist amusement of "soon to be dead" retirees of TV and some grumpy old men sitting in the FM. 

 

On a larger note, constantly milking farang dollar is what the folks here want. Their DNA is sequenced to believe that the farang will keep coming with their green paperback as long as the smiles, sun and sand are available along with a 3$ margerita over the sunset.
