Unfortunately for your theory they do backtracing. There is no doubt anymore that it originated in England, it simply want found anywhere else.
That was the line trotted out by the Brits early on but it doesn't stack up despite you wanting to blame it on the Germans and Italians.
It is what it is.
The so called Thai strain was one Egyptian discovered in the Thai quarantine system (that the UK didn't have), no Thais actually ever had it so it was a valid point. Secondly it didn't spread round the globe killing hundreds of thousands and forcing new lockdown. Nice bit of whataboutism though.
Not brilliant, but better than most faranger countries who let Karens roam and spread.
Nobody is starving. People can't pay the bills but nobody is starving. If you know someone who actually is I will send them some food.
TAT are often misrepresented in the English media because people get worked up about it. For decades they have been successfully enticing people to Thailand creating millions of jobs for Thais and lifting millions Burmese, Cambodians and Laotians out of poverty.
You have your stories mixed up. The highso covid spread was a hiso nightclub. There were also hookers crossing the border and putting it on Facebook.
The copper got his flash cars by seizing illegal imports where he was legally paid 30% commission for doing it. Plus other businesses such as bird nests. Plus extorting drug dealer scum with plastic bags. Not from his coppers salary.
Public servants are paid low wages here. So they are not a burden on the taxpayers. But they are given opportunities to earn in other ways. I favor low taxes and a user pays system. I think it is good.
