Thailand’s pollution control division has just hired 167 people to be “Smell Assessors” on a panel tasked with telling them exactly what stinks, which smells may be dangerous, and which are just annoying.

 

The professional assessors will analyze various odors and report to the Pollution Control Department (PCD) on what’s causing the smells and how to control them.

 

Jatuporn Buruspat, the PCD director-general, said that the hiring of the new assessors to an existing panel is related the the high number of grievances made about the smells from several factories and fear about what pollution those smells might be causing or related to, reported Bangkok Post.

good start!!....the next wise move would be to have (honest) food and sanitation inspectors making random sample checks from random restaurants in major cities and shutting down the rogues....but chances are that the whole program with good intentions, could get corrupted with tea money!!!!

 

Thai food or any food in restaurants in Thailad is basically excellent to very good, safe and cheap...but street food may not qualify to such high standards of hygiene?

 

ok I know...I am a dreamer waiting for the tooth fairy!! :post-4641-1156694572:

"Thai officials" recruit 167 relatives to be Smell Assessors. Their future is assured with heaps of overtime available.

Plenty of work at those overpopulated Thai beach resorts with decrepit and unmaintained sewage treatment plants, tourist toilet facilities at national parks and other attractions, rubbish tips on resort islands and Beachfront Walking Street restaurant bogs. The list is endless and includes the pong from roadside rubbish dumps and military camp latrines (particularly the officers mess). 

The big problem is where to start.

Just another "jobs for the boys and girls" loopy idea from the military.

What are the odds that this hiring is nothing more than nepotism?

Happened with the current NLA MP's. Happened with Prayut.

Nepotism? What an ugly word. In accordance with Thainess and high moral standards we call it: "Thai Family Tradition".
