  1. June 18th. According to Mr. Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, Minister of Tourism and Sports, "Phuket will embrace approximately 130,000 foreign tourists in the third quarter." Now I'm no expert but I would think the arrivals will start slowing down as those lunatics deperate to see their loved ones are already there...
  2. True and yet not one person on TV Aseannow said last year, "I hope the government are stock piling on vaccines just in case" Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending the Government but THEY, like most of the outside world thought that they had it under control. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
  3. Face masks don't always work ? Well neither do Parachutes but if I ever jump out of a airplane I still want to be wearing one...
  4. Very unlikely it will spread on food or packaging. I've audited a lot of factories/food processing plants around the world including in Thailand. You'll be amazed at how many workers don't wash their hands after vistiing the urinals and then go on to handle food. Covid is by far the least of my concerns!
  5. I never mentioned WWII and submarines until another poster bought it into the equation. As I said, I was playing Devils advoate and just feel there is a whiff of hypocrisy when most of the "first world" countries have large submarine fleets but hey ho.
  6. Whilst the offical military deaths amounted to around 5000+, you don't think the Thai people weren't starved, raped and murdered by the Japanese ? Anyhow we're moving off topic somewhat.
  7. Just to play devils advocate, why does Thailand NOT require a deterrent after all they were heavily involved in WWII and the last time I looked, they had a fairly large coastline? The UK has submarines to protect our interests so on that basis why wouldn't Thailand want the same ? There seems to be a misconception that submarines are used for warfare, that's true to a degree but most of the time they are used for intelligence gathering. Personally, I don't think they should have subs, its a waste of money and bad timing what with everything that's going on but their is part of me t
  8. Mrs Chelseafan has been offered Sinovac, she, like most of her village won't take it as they've heard 'horror stories' and don't believe it will protect them. They're paying up front for Moderna which according to the local hospital won't be available until Sept/Oct. They aint anti-vaxxers but have made up their minds, rightly or wrongly that Sinvac is no good.
  9. Yep, just like the rest of the world has been for the past 18 months!!
  10. You dont build your armed forces DURING conflict, you plan ahead. Why does an even smaller country like the UK need subs ? But I get your gist.
  11. Yes but how many are dying ? Around 30 or so a day, tragic as that is, its nowhere near the 1200+ a day back in January when we had similar infection rates. Say what you will about this Government but they've managed to get it right with the vaccine rollout.
  12. Don't underestimate their ability to out-bonker their bonkerness....
  13. Another thing that annoys me is that I support my Thai family and probably spend over a million baht a year doing so. I have no problems with this but it's a lot more than the Thai government give to my family -Just think, a million baht that trickles down into the economy creating jobs, paying wages, putting food on the table. And yet, I am worthless to them. They want EVEN MORE from me for a 10 year visa. No thanks. I'll stick to the retirement/marriage visa when the day comes.
