Certainly difficult to understand justification for that placement!

When corruption is involved it shows no bounds or locations.  Could just have well been a gold lined sewer tunnel in Pattaya...

It's not corruption alone. It's the amazing level of design and art skills found in the minds of Thailand's greatest creators. Soon the whole world will follow in Thailand's footsteps with such beauty. Amazing. The people are already fascinated by the artwork. What art or design school did these brilliant folks attend? 😹😹😹

The British Army were told to get ahead of the game and buy millions of pre-franked envelops...........built a warehouse for them..........BUT.......every time the Post Office changed the cost of postage they were all burned and replaced.

 

......

The cost was only for the envelopes, the postage isn't charged until they're actually posted.  Still costly, but not as much as if they had stamps on them.

Seven years into his tenure it appears that lampposts may be the latest way that corruption rears its ugly if artistic head in Thailand. 

 

Enlightening.

Also last week two officials were caught red handed taking a bribe of 80,000 baht for a local authority contract. 

 

The same "light fingered" villains????

I wonder if the drier regions are considering lampposts of a certain shape?

I wonder if wetter regions are considering something... meow.

I can picture the family resort of Pattaya with such lampposts in certain sois, topped with an organ. You know, to make it rain...
