You may have heard of recent efforts by the military junta in Thailand of trying to “bring happiness back to the Thai people”. There have been things like free concerts, free haircuts, free movies and more recently, World Cup matches on free TV. Who said Thaksin’s populist policies wouldn’t work? Anyway, the latest idea is to make all historical sites and national museums across Thailand free. That is the good news. Unfortunately the bad news is that the announcement clearly said “For Thai nationals only”. As if we didn’t need cheering up too.
What do you think? Do we deserve cheering up, or should things like this only be for the Thais?
