If they were serious, they would have enacted regulations long ago, like after the Royal Cliff fire. Or after the Route 66 Fire. Why they waited until after a tragedy in Bangkok to enact regulations, when they already had their own tragedies to go by, is beyond me.

I suppose in all fairness, the other Pattaya based tragedies happened while different administrations were in charge. Still, it's not like these people didn't know there were problems in the past, and potential problems all over the city at present.

The sad part is, it's probably all "window dressing". It will look good in the press, and then be quickly shuffled aside and forgotten about. Until the next tragedy of course.
