Damien on… A Sure Thing
Whenever the idiot US government comes up with another winner, the idiot British government can be guaranteed to copy it ten years later – and the idiot Thai government will follow suit twenty years after that. I just hope I’m DEAD before Thailand becomes as f***ed up as those countries.
The latest example is privatising – sorry, COMMERCIALISING the TRAINS.
Of course, the current rail strike here in Bangkok will do nothing to halt this forthcoming fiasco. The only GOOD thing about it – is that those who can find someone DUMB enough to bet against them, will make a fortune betting that as the fares go UP – passenger safety (a dodgy prospect ALREADY in this country: see my Smarter Brother Morpheus on “The Great Train Crash” *) will PLUMMET.
Like shooting fish in a barrel.
