Abhisit’s Stimulation : “to boost tourism, let’s make public holidays longer”

Abhisit is totally burned out.After 6 months as PM, he’s becoming as dumb as his predecessors Surayud, Samak, Somchai… It’s pathetic and scary.

Here is his latest Grand idea, launched into the air like a fart.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Friday announced that the government is ready to encourage a long public holiday as part of efforts to stimulate local tourism.

Speaking during a visit to the “Seminar in Thailand, Proud of Assisting Country,” he said his government had increased promotion of seminar and tour activities in Thailand in a bid to ease the impacts of the current economic sluggishness on tourism. (TNA)

I mean… WTF ? !

Abhisit should explain how people could enjoy long holidays and boot tourism sector ? I mean financially speaking ?

Crisis ? Allo ? Recession ? Exports crash ? Deficit ? No problems. In the Abhisit’s Lalaland Brain problems do not exist. Only solutions.

I have another arse-idea for our dashing PM : declare the year a permanent holiday… people would therefore stop working… and for sure we would see a fantastic boost of tourism business.

And another one : in order to ease the recession (a very annoying concept created by those damned westerners), create a lottery that would give 1 billion THB to each thai, adults and children as well (and cats and dogs too, it could be useful). Voila !

Welcome to the Rabbit Hole.

    I think we’re going to need to redefine the word ‘incompetent‘.

    We may need to have a look at ‘clueless fuckhead‘ as well.

    With unemployment increasing by 800,000 it does make you gaze in wonder at such headlines wondering where all the Thais are that are going to fill those empty rooms. And any that did book in would be paying a pittance compared to what the international market pays. Have also heard that Thai patrons don’t use the mini-bar, restaurants, telephones or tour desk, where many hotels get a nice mark up.

    Last year went to Khon Kaen and the hotel wanted to charge 2,000+ per room where I wanted 2 rooms for 3 days, they did say though that if we were govt workers they could discount to 700 per night. No I didn’t stay there.

    People will not spend unless they feel secure in their jobs. Creditors will not lend unless their clients are deemed to be able to repay. At a time like this, longer holidays will result in less spending, not more because insecure people will remain at home like hermits. The money they would’ve spent for lunch and transport and after-work shopping/beer (to relieve the tedium of work), etc will remain in their pockets.

    Indeed. It’s a zero sum game. If you spend more on “tourism”, you’ll spend less elsewhere.

    During a recession, it’s foolish to pretend (like Abhisit does indirectly with his stupid ideas) that incomes are rising ! That’s the whole point of a recession : wealth does not increase…. but decreases !

    Other lie and fantasy : governments do not create jobs per se, do not create wealth… it can merely redistribute it (with losses in the process of course, because gvts are inefficient, always).

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
