Phuket: Kata/karon Tuk-Tuk Drivers: ' We Will Block The Road'

Recommended Posts

Do we remember the last time these monkeys blocked the streets? The Police scampered back off to their hiding hole promising all kinds, I never heard of any arrests.....

Hmm mob rules again! I am waiting patiently for ASEAN to come into effect. That will then show that this backward nation will struggle to survive, hopefully get swallowed up by another nation. Then we can all sigh relief. Bloody thugs are an embarrassment to this already embarrassing nation.

I'm not sure" Phuket" signed up to the ASEAN agreement, after all, it's not actually in Thailand. Phuket is it's own country. :) :)

I doubt "Planet Phuket" will allow ASEAN to interfere with their business model of criminality here. :) :)

If you actually read up on the ASEAN agreement, there are only a few jobs that will be open to other members of the ASEAN countries in Thailand. Doctor, dentist and accountant. Nothing about taxi or Tuk Tuk drivers or the long list of other occupations that are reserved for Thais only. So you can wait all you want, nothing will really change, sadly...

You are forgetting one of the biggest unofficial "occupations" in Thailand - prostitution. When ASEAN starts, that's a lot of ASEAN ladies with freedom of movement across the Thai boarder. There are already a lot here, working in nightclubs and bars, but ASEAN will make it more easy for all of them.

Now that will really be "stealing" Thai jobs, and customers, and boyfriends, and husbands. :) :)

I think the buffalo will be sicker in Issan after ASEAN starts. :) :)

They are already here. I've "met" some nice girls from Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam - "on holidays" and having a drink in bars here. One thing led to another. I'm sure you know what I mean. :)

Like I said in another post, the day will come on Phuket when a nightclub, or nightclubs, will have Russian girls, "on holiday" meeting tourist and going home with them. Freelancing, or just trying to live here. Their visa will be in order - nothing immigration can do, nothing, legally, police can do. It's been happening in Bangkok for years.

That said, Thai bar girls will not be blockading Bangla Road because their "job" actually doesn't exist. :)

I would guess the best of any kind of work force would follow the money and go to Singapore. The rest will be shared to other places in the region.

Sounds like you would know better than I! I moved away from Patong over 7 years ago! Haven't been to Bangkok or Pataya for almost as long...

Ah yes, Thailand, the hub of ANARCHY and spineless politicians. Come on Charlem grow a pair and do something to fix this problem.

This reminds me that one of the benefits of being in Phuket and Phuket forum here is that there is almost never political discussions between followers of any colored shirts.

How this for a logical progression:

1. we no longer have rice fields

2. we can no longer make a living with tuk tuks because there is a 30thb bus

3. we need some land to make rice fields

4. all of our land has been stolen by farangs

5. the government must take our land back from the farangs so that we can make rice fields

Oh..hang on a minute... 90 percent of the land in Phuket is owned by 12 families....Somchai didn't have a rice field in the first place...
