Ronnakit was blaming a group of homeless people for damaging the image of Pattaya. 

They didn't look I'd imagine someone 'homeless' looks like. They appeared quite smart in the video.

But don't forget the old joke: 'damaging the image of Pattaya.'

That a hoot, the Tessakit are one of the worst offenders for rip off. Especially the 2000 baht hit for dropping a cigarette end!

That's a fine, not a rip off.

Yeah! Must be much better that they do nothing and let it continue another 20+ years, right?

How much business has their inaction of the last 20 years cost them? 

 

Let's not forget, in the last 20 years Facebook etc has been invented, and one negative experience can be shared between hundreds, if not thousands, in 2 minutes.

 

As the case with many things here, they would rather make a quick illegal baht, than run a proper legitimate and sustainable operation.

As long as you did drop one.

Years ago in Bangkok I had a Tessakit guy try it on with me for dropping a cigarette end.

I laughed in his face and walked away. I was pretty cocky.

Why? I've never smoked in my life.

You have to give this guy credit

Anyone who can mention " damaging the image of Pattaya " with a straight face, must surely be an honest man  :cheesy::cheesy:😱

So, you are saying that it´s better to do same the next 20 years as well.

Where did I defend them? The only thing I asked was if it was better to do something late or leave it like it is? You avoided to answer that one.

They are not going to do anything. This article is pure bs and an attempt to make one official look like he's earning his salary. As soon as (or if) the tourist dollars start to flow, it will be business as usual. Thai authorities never focus on the big picture, although they sometimes like to give that impression.

So when it was foreigners, it was not a problem, now that it is happening to Thais, it is?

Even if it goes very slow, things change. If you can not see that, then you are blind.
