These all sound like excellent ideas. But let us look at the implementation of some of these so far. Take the 5000 baht monthly allowance for freelance workers. As a self employed retailer, my wife applied. In every way, she completely qualifies. She got her answer back from the government today:

 

Invalid ID number.

 

Huh? The ID number was perfect. Nothing about it was invalid. Others are getting back responses like "invalid name".  Basically, this is a flat out electronic finger by the government saying "yes, you qualify, but we don't want to pay you, and can't think of any reason why."

 

So these policies are all BS. They aren't going to deliver on them, because they don't have the money. In the same way they are denying visa extensions by requiring landlords to show up rather than honestly saying "eff off foreigners", they are going to weasle their way out of all of these policies as well. This is a sound bite with no genuine substance.

 

Nobody is fooled. I would prefer even Thaksin to this idiot, and I *HATE* Thaksin.

If you don't like it then I suggest you can always return to your own country and complain about the government there. When in Rome and all that.

And finally, I would like all foreigners to think of themselves as welcomed guests in these troubling times.

We, the Thai people, thank you for your contributions to our society and your never ending willingness to jump through our hoops.

3 month extensions to all visa will be made available but at the right time.. Once your stress and anxiety levels have peaked !!!

 

Right. Got that.

 

100% believable.

Good for you. Count yourself lucky that you won the lottery. Many deserving people did not. Try a bit of humility. It works.
