Joke of the day : new mayor of Pattaya wants to “eradicate the red-light venues”

Another good laugh with thai politicians.

Mr Ittipon Khunpluem (son a of powerful family in the area) won the elections in Pattaya. He’s the new mayor.

This young and brillant top gun has some very bold ideas

Mr. Ittipon intends to put his vision for a new improved Pattaya into practice by carrying out the following policies: (Pattaya Daily News)

-environmental improvement
-the implementation of an effective water supply for the city and Kho Larn (Coral Island)
-a 12-year free education system
-low-cost housing for low income groups
-a new, improved traffic system
-a tramline transportation system
-flood prevention
-job opportunities to decrease poverty
-the eradication of Pattaya’s red-light venue – Walking Street
-the establishment of a drug-observation and prevention centre
-the encouragement of ecotourism
-the construction of a sports centre
-the establishment of a tourism festival
-the encouragement of world-class entertainment

Indeed, it’s good to laugh. 😉
