Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

Why keeping those people in jail and spend money for nothing ? Better get rid of them. I've no idea what the corresponding costs in Thailand are but in the US "the average trial and incarceration costs of [a] murder case that results in a death penalty are almost double those in a murder case that ...

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

1 a day, 2 years to clear the backlog.
Then start on the corrupt politicians and civil servants!

Usual Mex food, enchilladas, burritos, nachos etc. Nice big place, friendly owner (Australian), open every day until at least 10pm. A welcome addition to Huahin c...

Re: Isle Of Man TT

ITV4 are also showing the Irish Road Races and Southern100.
Th first two races, Cookstown and Tandragee, are still available to watch on their catch-up.
Even better than the TT!

Re: Hua Hin police to get tough on motorbike helmets

If you think it's bad now wait until more big bikes are on the road. I see that Honda, Kawasaki and Ducati have show rooms between Hua Hin and Cha Am. What is bad about that? People who ride what you call “big bikes” are very likely to use crash helmets as they are more knowledgable about riding mo...

Re: Bangkok Post editor removed from role

Caller, I disagree with you on this issue, but as neither of us have any say in the running of this Country let us agree to differ.

There are more important things to worry about - like the price of wine here!

Re: Bangkok Post editor removed from role

"What do you mean he's trying to fix the problem? Where, when, how? You got some sort of insight the rest of us haven't? How on Earth can you claim the the coup had the backing of the majority of the Thai people? You got some sort of insight the rest of us haven't?" Prosecutions for corruption are n...

Re: Bangkok Post editor removed from role

Caller you wrote: "Ah, so you're one of the trolls that plague the comments section of BP!" I have never commented on BP, so try again with your attempted slurs. Prayut is trying to fix the problems, but he is one man, and corruption is very deeply-rooted here. I think he should have started with re...

Re: Bangkok Post editor removed from role

Norseman, the fact that you are allowed to call Prayut a "moron", (which is a lie), would seem to show that there is some press freedom. Umesh Pandy has repeatedly shown a lot of anti-government bias in the Bangkok Post, with never any criticism of Pheu Thai. Perhaps the newspaper can now revert to ...

Swedish restaurant or bar

A Swedish friend is visiting Huahin, and I would like to know if there are any Swedish restaurants or bars around?
Make him feel at home when he tires of Thai food!
Thanks.

Re: Snakes in the house and garden

Vern Lovich, snakesofthailand.com has made a video about the free handling of venomous snakes. Although he acknowledges David Frohlichs' knowledge and ability, he questions the wisdom of what he does for 2 basic reasons. Free handling is basically unnecessary, and is like playing Russian Roulette. L...
