Don Muang Airport To Be New Government House

Recommended Posts

My neighbor says that the Don Muang airport is on air force land and that the PPP just paid up for delaying the next coup - sounds rather fantastic to me, but hey anything is possible!

That sounds quite likely to me.

Given the location I was thinking that the military will not have so far

to go next time they want to stage a Coup.................

Has anyone explained why the move is only "temporary"??????????

h90 here are some more cost that you can afford after paying for the grass at government house. I have been to a lot of different gatherings of Thai's and seen the mess that is left behind and you think that 50,000 Baht will cover the cost at government house, you are wish fully thinking.

It is way past time to get the PAD out of the government house. It's time to set up barriers around the property. You can come out but you cannot go in. No food and no water. Shut off the water and electricity. It might take a week or so but they WOULD come out.

I could not agree with you more, it should have been done as soon as they took over the property. Riot police surround the area and no more people can enter, try and you are carted off to jail. Leave peacefully and you are free to go, except for the leaders that need to pay for everything, clean-up, repairs, and temporary costs that the government and the Thai people are being forced to pay for.

Except the police doesn't want to solve PPP's political problems.

PPP has created this mess and no one else wants to touch it.

Just shows how powerless the government really is.

I would think it might be because it would be very embarassing if the media could announce it was otherwise. "Government Gives Up On Old Premises and Moves To Airport." They'd have as much fun focusing on the embarasing elements of the stroy as they did on the Samak Cookery Show.

I am wondering about all the documentation left over at Government House. Big Brother had Winston sitting at a tube linked to an incinerator "losing" their unnecessary history.

It seems you haven't been there...they clean all the time...no trash no damage at all....

How much is it 10 peoplex10 daysx200 Baht per day=20.000 and you have a 30.000 left for purchasing something.

Beside that Chamlongs group told to repair everything after.

No way something there costs 300 Million if the buildings are not damaged.

Go there and have a look.

300 million with kickbacks and bad insider contractors and the usual BS.

Not that ACTUAL cost of putting it to rights.

Well at least these "boys" know how to keep the economy moving!

temporary Government facility, in the mean time planning a new one... the irrigation project is through, not bad,

How many other Projects are going to be pushed through on the expressway...money, kiddies, money...money, money, money, is all what it is about, the war chests have to e refilled - there has been some costly bills to be paid.. and more will be coming up soon - cause elections are inevitable!

Sandcastles would be a bit too obvious....well they may try to sell dreams next!

It really may be government intentionally built of sand castles.

WHY?, because to you ALWAYS must be rebuilding

and that means contracts for the boys coffers to be refilled.

One thing I have observed here is that thinking far ahead

with a long range viewpoint is not a typical trait.

Don Muang Airport is really an ideal place for a PM office:

For the Govt

1. The area is huge. It will take a lot more PAD to fill it up and take control.

2. Too many gate for the PAD to secure access to the place

3. Convinient to get away by air (to LHR or SIN)

4. No problem blocking Vipawadee, traffic can be diverted onto the Tollway above

5. Snipper can position on tollway in case such action is needed.

6. Military (airforce) back up (but this could also back fire)

7. Golf course to entertain guess from SIN Myanmar Cambodia & UK.

For the PAD

1. Enough toilets (some with showers)

2. Big air-con hall, so protestor don't have to weather the hail storm and blazing sun

3. Good PA system for the PAD leaders to yell the shit out

4. Executive ROP lounge for the PAD leaders and ROP Gold members only (sorry no Thailand Elite allowed)

5. Press room and communication system fully installed for ASTV (wifi also available)

6. Large kitchen (TG Catering) service available

7. Foreign exchange counters & bank, convenient for donnor and overseas reporters

8. Airport hotel for foreign press, and rich protestors

9. Superb road and rail logistic to ferry in supportor (or air them in from the South)

10. Larger cargo area to shore emergency golf club and other self defense equipments (sorry, M16 not allowed)

11. Golf course to use the club on balls, not DAAD's head.

12. Metal detector to screen people in & out.

13. Duty Free shopping & Jae Leng will roll in quite a bit of HiSoc HiSor

14. Lots of parking space for Mercedes.

I thought this topic was a joke until I saw it in the paper today. The 'new office' photo looks like a shot of a 1970's era cheap hotel room.

Plus it will be convient for the fast exits from Thailand with luggage etc which seems to be a part of the Thai political system past and present.

Actually they would have been better off relocating the PM's office in Bombat Pisek Prison on Ngam Wong Wan road:

1. It's nice and close to Don Muang anyway.

2. It come with free guards and security.

3. The PM will be able to continue his work uninterrupted even after being convicted for corruption. They just need to lock the office door.
