Surely Russell Crowe can sing and dance a bit, and he's already in town.

Would probably be happy to do it for another food hamper from the little general. 

Thailand’s Tourism and Sports Ministry will request, from the cabinet at its mobile meeting in the southern province of Krabi on November 15th and 16th, a special budget of more than 100 million baht

Indeed, one hears he will happily appear for a basket full of chicken essence pots tied up with ribbons...

 

"Sic transit gloria mundi"

- she has thrown up in the van again!

Would we not be entertained?

Quite a ludicrous and shallow suggestion.

Arrange a Lalisa concert because her popularity with the masses is very high; hoping that the masses then become happier with the people who arranged it for them.  Also thinking that pictures taken of her and the arrangers will make people think she supports them.

At the same time arrange a Bocelli concert, because that's what the upper echelons would like to see.

I would also be interested to see the attendance figures for other New Year concerts and if it includes hordes of people who actually travel from other countries to attend.  How many of those would be deterred by travel and socialising restrictions that may be in place?

I really do not want to p*ss on his parade but will someone please tell me how this is going to happen? I admit life has to go on and we all have to deal with Covid but with all the hurdles there are to come here and the fact that everything is not under control makes me wonder if this is money well spent. Or is this going to turn into a damp squib and a humongous loss? 

Just because they say it will be used to boost the economy, it does not mean that that is what it will be used for. The usual suspects must be hurting now that so few tourists are available to pluck, so they, IMO, have had to come up with an alternative excuse to enrich themselves.

 

Whenever large sums of money are mooted, one does well to remember which country we are discussing.

Why has no one told the organisers, the tourists are not coming?  If they want to see packs of wild dogs they will go to a local zoo near a restaurant that serves wine.

He insisted that the project is worth the investment, estimated at about 200 million baht in total, adding that it will help to boost the economy and the flagging tourism sector.

Shoe-repairers.

Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said today (Monday) that the 100 million baht is just the cost of the appearances of the two stars, adding that he expects more details of the appearance contracts to be available on October 30th.

Phipat has a different agenda to what is really needed.
