So far, there have only been a couple of comments to the PhuketWan Minister of Tourism and Sports article, and anyone disagreeing is looking to get smacked.
impossible to see some improvement in this decade.. Only when Thais have hurt in the pocket will really try to do sometingh.. for the rest is only bbla bla bla to make someone happy…

Bangkok finally reacts, and you still insist on being ”Doomy Dave.” How long is it since you heard the birds singing and noticed the sun is shining?
I can understand PhuketWan being optimistic, but, being a realist, I really don’t see this as anything but another fine show put on by the Thai Government and the Minister of Tourism and Sports.
Some news sources have focussed on DSI attention to Russian and Korean ”mafia” but Phuketwan has learned that the crackdown will be widespread and address all the issues raised by the ambassadors.
I don’t see this either. This will be a rounding up of all the usual FOREIGN suspects and the Thai criminals/mafia won’t be touched. Hell, they have a week’s warning to lay low and take a vacation. I guess the Minister of Tourism and Sports figures the foreign mafia are too busy scamming tourists to read the English language dailies.
It would be nice if the Sheriff Minister of Tourism and Sports follows through with these high and mighty plans to save Phuket, but I see it as another show for tourists to make them think that the Thai Government cares.
