What I don’t understand about the Thai media, is why, after 4 weeks have passed, and no sign of this being over, do they not simply ask him why he said that and does he admit he got it wrong? It not defamation. It’s not liable. It’s not against section 112 of the Thai criminal code. It’s a perfectly reasonable question that would need to be answered. Is it that they fear a drive by shooting? Do they fear they will lose their jobs? Or is it a Thai loss of face nonsense? If it’s all or any of these things, then why don’t foreign correspondents ask the question? Surely the world, future tourists, business investors etc need to understand who is running the show?
I brought up two kids in private education here in England and now they have great futures so obviously it is as you said not only 'me, me me'.
But now I have done that I can now have some 'me, me me' time.
But my initial comment goes from this afternoon, farangs do not have a say or a vote in Thailand nor permanent residence even if they do work for themselves or a company or have Thai kids.
Farangs have to shut up and put up.
