No com­mon sense

Bangkok Post - - OPINION -

Re: “Feel­ing un­ap­pre­ci­ated”, Khun Sa­manea Sa­man is so right when say­ing, (re­gard­ing the Im­mi­gra­tion Bureau) “… you are hereby au­tho­rised to use a mod­icum of com­mon sense and re­scind your threats and in­tim­i­da­tion against stranded tourists, per­haps even tak­ing mea­sures to make them feel wel­come and ap­pre­ci­ated.” The Im­mi­gra­tion Bureau is used to us­ing in­tim­i­da­tion and threats, learned from that king of jok­ers, for­mer Im­mi­gra­tion Bureau chief, Big Joke. His trade­mark was both threats and in­tim­i­da­tion. As for Khun Sa­manea’s plea for a mod­icum com­mon sense, ha! The Bureau has not used com­mon sense since it moved to big­ger premises at Chaeng Watthana. The only thing that got big­ger were their heads, egos and power dis­plays.
