Who writes these headlines? Wind up means to close something down. They seem to be doing the exact opposite here. Not even a mention of Prawit so no watch pun either.

 

Maybe the same author helps create the catchy slogans so beloved of Thai authorities:

What were the authorities doing prior to this crackdown?

I'm sure they were in no way facilitating those pesky foreigners to stay there illegally.

 

As there were 1,000 outlaws arrested, I wonder what the total number of foreigners is in Phuket, and whether it makes it look like a high percentage of illegals?

Just imagine how many lives could be saved on Thai road if they put this kind of effort into policing the road!!!  :thumbsup:

 

But it does let one see Thailand's priorities. 

"Good guys in; Bad guys out!" -- Number 1 Top Priority
End the carnage of Thai road -- Not much of a priority

Is there an authority who might get the bright idea that all those raids and razzias on foreigners might have a negative influence on tourism?

Might it not be better to do this more silently?

Or maybe even in a different way?

Big Moo... well yes, I can understand why, (and I do know Moo does not translate to cow...)

 

Should the headline read "Big Moo brings home the bacon"?

Oh the Thais are funny go hard for 1 month  on this and it will be situation normal by Xmas 

And let's get rid  of the pesky farang and tourist that over stays . 

Fast forward 6 months TAT will be whining that the tourist rate is down 

They did a good job with the boat sinking already Chinese tourists are down 35 %

If I committed any crime, he is the first person I would like to have chasing me. :cheesy:

He looks like Landburgher Gessler from William Tell. :cheesy:

This would surely restore tourist confidence seeing hundreds of police roaming the streets and assending on hotels👍

 

Lets do Kaosan road take 2. First kill it and then start to spend millions and brainstorm on how to revive it

A breakdown of the nationalities would be helpful, I would think that 98% would be from bordering countries.

Exactly. With no breakdown of nationality it was probably a raid on a couple of construction sites where they found documentation wasn’t kept properly plus the usual amount of overstayers who get arrested for other offenses.
