Surely they should be concetrating on more beneficial things for the Thai people and the Thai economy than bloody casinos? Seems a measure of the inefectiveness of these incompetant buffoons.

Previous monarch was against any form of legalized gambling and most Thais don’t want casino. Politicians stay clear away from this unpopular subject for obvious reasons. Fast forward now, sentiment from the people is still unclear and not making any comment is strategically wise. Setting up a commission to study the subject is a bold decision and toe dipping to test the water. It will probably end up with a suggestion for a referendum to be held and unlikely by the current government.

what like generating huge tax revenues from a casino so they can use it for the Thai people?

tax is secondary belive me, and comes far behind private intrest

better for the country is no casinos,  but  even a long time before, since the changes started in pattaya ( and maybe other places) , i see that without se.xtoruism  , the city have no real attraction.

the city today is desperate needing asian, spec chinese , to survive

 

so the logic is casinos , to attrac the tourist the goverment wants

 

bad bad bad ,missing the golden time of pattaya , what is dying

they are selling it wrong.

1 casino = 1 submarines a year in tax revenue

2 casino = 1 submarine and 10 tanks

3 casino = 1 sub, 10 tanks and nice shiny attack plane

etc.

 

sold like this , the immigrants would be laying the foundations tomorrow

...Thailand can't resist anything.

Translation is a lot more simple than many think.

 

Neither one has any say in it and neither one has the opportunity to have financial interest in it, all already taken

How so... will they get to have a referendum/vote on whether they want a casino or not?

Or will it be the "influential" people who have a stake in it that will decide?

 

Already decided already built a few.

Yet, when have they ever been behind or passionately promoted anything practical and beneficial for the people? They exist, and were placed, for other things.

Any such rhetorical inquiries tend to be a bit moot. 

Same as it ever was.

Probably because these guys are constantly moralizing about illegal gambling, or in other words, gambling that the government doesn't receive a cut of the profits. 
"Bad evil people gamble, blah blah blah.  The Tu Twins just want to save you from yourselves and Buddhist Gambling Hell."

Lottery?  Legal.  Why?  The right people get the profits.
Casinos?  Probably will be legal.  Why?  The right people get the profits.
All other gambling?  Illegal.  Why?  Ya'll get the logic.
Same as cannabis.
Cannabis grown and processed by the right people. Legal.
Cannabis grown by the commoners.  Illegal.

"Elementary my dear Watson.  Economics and power!"

Dumb and Dumber thought they were cute in saying no comment but they actually gave themselves away which is what the two do best the more they talk the more it becomes clear " going abroad " but the two are actually waiting for the final numbers being donated first to make a decision.🤑
