Wait until the western governments say that is 80% of the population vaccinated with WHO, EU or US approved vaccinations, and all of the Sinovac purchases bankrupt the government, who will of course then point their fingers at the West.
Yeh - good point. I can remember when in Chiang Mai that they had an 'Expats Club' which we went to visit. It was very 'Americanised' and not that open and friendly - I guess they had too many of 'those' Expats joining and causing issues, so they were 'dubious' about new members.
However, there is a large number of Japanese and Korean Expats in Thailand, and they both have 'clubs' that represent those Expats from their country. I guess that what is really needed is for each country to form their own group like the Japanese and Koreans have done, and that beyond that there could be some 'coming together' when dealing with an issue that affects us all.
I have always said that what Aussies need to do is to form a group/club, so that we can have the numbers when dealing with the Aust Govt about various issues. But the problem always becomes that some members will always try and take over and get things done the way they want them. And of course when they are pushed out, they then refuse to accept the majority view and try to form their own group and disrupt the unity of the other group - they would rather destroy the group than agree to support something they dont agree with. Japanese and Korean Expats will accept things for the group - Aussies (and all westerners) can be extremely annoying when they dont get their own way.
