Tourists arrives at the hotel:

"Welcome to Thailand.

Congratulations for getting thru the airport without getting scammed.

Don't overstay or you will be blacklisted. Here, wear this wristband and stay in the safety zone. Don't use the taxies and avoid the jet ski thugs. Prepare yourself for random body searches and piss tests.

The police are worthless so don't get into trouble and whatever you do, stay out of the King Power Duty Free shops when you depart.

And keep that wrist band on in case they find your corpse.

Have a nice stay."

Jurassic park ..... ? LOL...

Great advert for the country , you need an escort from your own personal bodyguard for a trip down Family Mart to get 20 fags and a half bottle of Mekong

Perhaps you should clarify that remark for the sakes of our American cousins. By getting 20 fags you mean cigarettes. alt=biggrin.png>

We have just had the "push bike" debate on another thread. I wouldn't want there to be an unfortunate misunderstanding.cheesy.gif.pagespeed.ce.HaOxm9--Zv.gif width=32 alt=cheesy.gif>

2 nations divided by a common language.

Thank you , let me Clarify , 20 Gays

Utterly bizarre.

Minders! cheesy.gif

Wristbands! cheesy.gif

Tracking devices! cheesy.gif

Roped off party enclosures! cheesy.gif

I am struck dumb by the utter idiocy of this.

The hub of unbelievable stupidity.

Hey! You up there in power.

How about catching and sentencing a few murderers and thieves? Now that would be a novel idea. thumbsup.gif

This is what happens when Thai's don't challenge their superiors, khun kobkarn has a terrible idea and her aides all nod at such a good idea.

She should have listened to the hotels, but what would the little man know.

i love this country and wont live anywhere else but government officials here must be most stupid brainless politicians and beurocrats ever or anywhere on this planet

You have to laugh or you'd cry

These are not government officials, they are hand-selected ministers making these sorts of statements as often as not.

Weren't all Yingluck's ministers always hand picked selected based on knowledge, skill and ability to do the best job - and she had 6 different cabinets in less than 3 years!

Hope there's not going to be a repeat performance. It was announced very publicly that non performing ministers would be removed. Does that mean the ones who perform badly too or just those the do nowt?

Not quite sure what Yingluck has to do with this? The point is, the self-anointed one announced he was going to do away with all this sort of stuff and yet it's getting worse. How many extra generals do we have now? Appointed in the past couple of months.

Oh for a free press where switched on Thai (and there are many millions) can deal to this sort of nonsense.

Meanwhile the economy dropped to .5% growth ...

Well i've said it before, well done Thailand you've not only cocked up the best two saleable commodities in the world, (P-ss and pus-y) and now this latest half baked idea just gives an indication why the place is going down the toilet. Wouldn't it just be easier to catch the killers from Koh Tao, hang em up to dry in front of the rest of the scaly cockroaches, and let this be a lesson to all would be murderers and rapists ? You know, the whole world has now realised that in Thailand, anybody (Especially a local) can get away with murdering anyone (Especially a Farang) and the powers to be (For a price) will guarantee immunity from prosecution......... Real good for tourism...... I'm expecting the TAT to produce increasing tourist figures shortly........ ( Getting like China this place ) Next it'll be party political broadcasts, morning, noon, and night...........Wristbands ? What next ?

“The next step would be some sort of electronic tracking device but this has not yet been discussed in detail.”

Oh, this will be a paradise for tourists, treated as criminals with electronic devices.

Are these people serious coming up with ideas like that?

I'm afraid so. It's what you get from an education system that discourages analytical and critical thinking: people shooting their mouths off without assessing the ramifications of what they are saying.

I had to check the date: Its not April Fools day for another 7 months!

In the title is says "Curfews" but this news report contains nothing about curfews.

I swear that these reports ONLY written to wind us up ????

I suggest that they get ID numbers or barcodes tattooed on the wrists, and give us all a coloured armband based on our nationality. Perhaps put us in a barbed wire fenced off area for our own protection as well.

If the Tourism Ministry is capable of even mulling tagging for foreigners, imagine what the ISOC (Internal Security Operations Command) is up to with their own population?

makes sense. It's so much harder to establish a competent, dedicated and reliable police force - that's totally unmullable!...No Thai mulling expert would be found to even remotely mull this about.

And in the meantime:

http://www.nationmultimedia.com/national/Violent-Phuket-taxi-drivers-return-to-work-30244431.html

Expect to see taxi drivers who have been convicted for their role in Phuket's taxi mafia back behind the wheel without delay, the Phuket Provincial Land Transportation Office (PLTO) confirmed to the Phuket Gazette Tuesday.
"Anybody who was sentenced for his or her role in the taxi mafia - even individuals who ripped people off, were violent or intimidated tourists - can continue to work as a taxi driver as long as his or her sentence has been suspended," says Konlayut Jattutasri, chief of the PLTO Licensing Division.

...how about branding or banding all convicted Thai criminals....robbers, rapists and the such...instead...

Yes but remember in Thailand we don't have criminals, rapists or murderers, because Thai people don't do those things..............Yeah ?

This guy seriously needs to be sacked and replaced because he is clearly out of his depth. What educated person would come up with such ridiculous ideas and concepts. Yes there is a problem, so why not have law enforcement do their jobs or maybe a law in place that protects a persons safety. One might suggest automatic 10 years in jail for any Thai causing harm to anyone else especially that of tourists. One could suggest that it could work both ways. Law enforcement need to work harder to get people like this off the streets and out of society.
