Is Thaiger becoming pro-Junta TAT lovers?

Recommended Posts

So many Thaiger headlines and the comments spoken on Good Morning Thailand and the Thaiger Bites sessions, are so positive towards the Junta and its abysmal failing policies and programs to attract tourists as their only means to save the economy.  This is an example from the Thaiger Headline - "News Forum - Thailand to lift quarantine for vaccinated tourists from low-risk countries"  From November 1, fully vaccinated tourists from at least 10 “low-risk” countries will be allowed enter Thailand without quarantine.

The truth is that you must undergo a PCR test on arrival and then remain in an ASQ type hotel for at least one day while the results of you (and your family) PCR tests are processed. I still call that 'quarantine' and with it the possibility that one of your family will test positive (or were sitting near someone else that tests positive), and therefore that whole 2 weeks luxury expensive holiday you have paid for on that island is totally screwed. Mandatory ripoff insurance, military curfews, most venues closed, no alcohol, COE moved to online system and renamed Thailand Pass because most of the overseas Embassies are incompetent, must pay for all tests, and if test positive there will be more tests to pay for and an expensive ASQ hotel bill which are all not covered under the insurance scam.

I wish the Thaiger would properly vet these stories especially from the Bangkok Post and tell the truth again about the Junta and its incompetence. I think that maybe Tim was not on a holiday for 2 weeks, but he was sent to a 're-education' facility (China style) and ever since he has come back the Thaiger has become a 'Thailand Apologist' and is now always saying positive things about the Junta and its attempts to entice tourists back.  Prior to going away Tim was very sceptical about all the programs and all the crap coming out of the Junta - remember walking backwards naked and all that?  Well now it seems Tim is 'vested' in the success of tourism to Thailand and is always playing things up and is no longer saying sceptical negative things.  Jay has been put in charge (was that a condition of release?) and it was always very true of Jay that he was a bit more 'apologetic' than Tim.  Now Jay is always brushing off blatant propaganda and lies with 'that is how it is' and 'lets all be positive'.  Only Jet remains the sceptical critic who questions the truth and validity of all the crap coming out of the Junta and its incompetent Government - especially TAT.  

Where has the old Thaiger gone?  What is going on??

Concur with the OP, Next episode is being shot in Prayut's office, promoting coffee. 

The younger one seems to be filling out a bit, spending his salary on tucker by looks of it.....

That's a good thing Bob, better than them out there spreading it around, killing people. What is the procedure for a Thai visiting Australia right now?

 

TAT is just a government agency that are paid to promote tourism. They have done an exceptional job, with almost 40 million tourists arriving in 2019, creating millions of jobs, not just for the Thais, but also for their poorer neighbours, Burma, Laos and Cambodia, helping millions of people rise out of poverty.

Amazing Thailand. The Aussie public servants at the Australian tourist board could learn a trick or two from TAT.

TAT has been around a lot longer than this government and will be around after they have gone.

what are they going to do? tow the line as best you can in a very public space while trying to appeal to as many people as possible or totally alienate the government? all it would take is one upset government official and there are big problems. especially from Farang. 

there are many places on the web where they are in full attack mode and they cant be quoted here .
