Send the bill to your mates in Beijing.  They let the Wuhan China virus out so they can make restitution to every country effected.  

For some reason, I'm not feeling it for the Phuket tuk-tuk mafia and their families, you know the ones who want B200 to go a kilometer down the road...and if you have the temerity to negotiate tell yo

It was the paranoid reaction of the government to the pandemic rather than the pandemic itself which caused these 1.57 trillion losses to Thai tourism.    Instead of gradually opening the co

You mean, they should not be buying Submarines or Jet's.  They should be helping those in need instead of stuffing there pockets first, do I have that right? 

It will never happen in Thailand the government army and people are controlled by the Deleted in a authoritarian regime the same way china is. Hence the fact of the  favoritism they dont ask questions like the un europe or the usa does so with china and the money they can continue to get rich while the poor get poorer

People also forget how nonchalant Thailand and China were from January through February, and into March.

Your wrong, but you have said it so you think it must be fact.

You must have a short memory. How old are you? 
 

Nothing wrong with my memory.

You can read all the garbage you want but I did a border bounce on the train to PB on 5th Feb and I can assure you nobody was nonchalant about covid.

1.57 trillion baht is about 9% of Thailand's 2019 GDP, and still 3 months of losses to add. Hard to see that Thailand will only lose 7% of GDP this year .......

This loss is no problem, of course. The tourism minister will just invite 200 Chinese on a special visa, that will each spend 20 billion baht over 6 months. The news will be out tomorrow - wait and see! Because in Thailand, they have some really razor-sharp thinking politicians... 😄😛

Yes right. Meanwhile in the real world, WHO recognizes that Thailand has handled the pandemic brilliantly compared to all those wonderful "first world" nations in Europe, the US, Aussie etc. They all put money before people and are now enjoying their second lockdowns, curbs and curfews. 

 

Dumb idea not to close the borders and have millions affected.

In the real world? WHO? Lol. That brilliant organisation that A, didn't recognise this thing was a thing, and B, was against masks one minute then totally for it the next? Do me a favour!

 

But you're right. The first world nations have put in and saved millions of jobs, while Thailand has done practically nothing and put MILLIONS out of work, all the while not testing to sustain low figures.

 

Dumb idea to not close borders and have millions 'affected' (even after the horse had bolted?), or dumb idea to close borders, declare no virus and continue to wreck millions of lives?
