I have lived in quite a few countries over the years, 

So have I but not so much lived in, worked in, so after 15 years here I find Thailand refreshing and free, Immigration, local police & govt where I live are good helpful people.

Couldn't wait to finish up work quick enough and get deleted ell out of UK.

To name a few Saudi was deleted, Nigeria was deleted, Russia was great but deleted very cold. 😂

Every 3rd world country (outside Islam) is the same.

One of the main attractions of living in Thailand is the lack of enforcement of regulations after living in a country where I could not abide by all of the regulations there and faced the wrath of the law.

Just like in the case of Jimmy and Monica, they do it because they can. And even if somebody in a position of authority catches them, the "punishment" is usually a ticking-off, or at most a small fine. John Burdett reckoned this was something to do with the Buddhist culture of being punished by being shamed, aka losing face. It doesn't work with us farang heathens, which is why our governments must send us to jail for many years for crimes that might cost a Thai a 500 Baht fine and a good telling-off. Until they get realistic about the penalties, you can expect people to continue doing whatever they feel like.
