THAI was not particularly renown for it's clear and transparent financial record keeping. Although it is a "Flag Carrier" , the sheer level of financial incompetence and mismanagement, not to mention the freebies handed out to all and sundry in the higher echelons of society is a good enough reason in itself not to bail it out.
It got to the point to where the auditors themselves were somewhat reluctant to open up the "books", which didn't bode well.
It is very bad news for those who have lost their jobs over this, but as usual, those responsible for the mess are often shielded from the fallout.
Agreed, and I wasn’t suggesting that wealth was the answer. However, there are many countries who will be struggling though lack of funding. Many of these are part of the Covax scheme and it is to this scheme more vaccine progressed countries should now be donating more to. We just all need to find a way to get this virus under a bit more control than it currently is. It’s clearly something we will have to learn to live with for many many years, if not generations to come.
No worries mate :)
Actually, you know your bikes maybe you or someone here can answer me a question (or help solve a bit of a chat between me and a mate at work)
Do you know which bike had the nickname and reputation of being the "widowmaker"?, I always thought it was the H2 Kawasaki 750, my mate says it was the GS850 suzuki but we both also think it might have been the 350LC !
I did have a 350LC in the day, then replaced it with a YPVS. The 350 was a bit of a cow in the wet even with Pirelli Phantoms on it but it did handle ok and treated with some respect would behave itself.
