Consider the requirements to obtain a work permit zillions of forms or the useless day residence reports to the immigration office for foreigners living long-term in this country. This latter example has been cited so many times in ''PostBag'' as a perfect candidate for internet filing, or better still, complete abolition, as it is a waste of time and resources.
Like most readers, I'm intrigued by the saga of the burned luxury cars and it will be interesting to see if anyone is actually convicted in this case. I would guess the smart money is on ''no''. However, the reason I am writing is just to ask how can a major in the Thai army can afford to spend 13 million baht on a second-hand car.
I would hope that the source of this cash is looked into. Your front page story, editorial and cartoon on Friday all demonstrate how ill-conceived the rice pledging scheme was. It has brought about a negative rating from Moody's for Thailand, and there is a huge stockpile of about 20 million tonnes of rice. The losses are already estimated at billion baht and will continue to accrue as long as the scheme goes on. What's more, it is millers and godown owners who will benefit, rather than the farmers. The government needs to act now, as prices have not escalated globally because of a shortage from Thai exports, as some quarters wanted us to believe.
A re-think of the project will do a world of good, as a financial downgrade will ring alarm bells in the international community. I doubt the truth will ever be known of the real costs to taxpayers of the rice pledging scheme. However, rather than let the rice just decompose and rot, could it be feasible to give the rice to those who need it? I'm sure many starving people around the world would welcome some Thai generosity. As Somsak Pola said in his letter in yesterday's PostBag, ''Moody's merits no credit'', credit rating agencies are not pure. They are, however, a necessary evil.

They were blamed for making bad analyses that were one of the causes of the financial meltdowns in America and Europe in But despite that, their role is still important to a capitalist society since investors look to them for guidance. In his letter printed in yesterday's Post on the continuing Moody's saga, Burin Kantabutra wrote, ''But nobody in government gives credible facts.
In the s, the US news media had an almost sacred status in the US and was considered the gold standard for reporting.
Today members of the US news media have become shills and flacks for the party in power, even as that party blatantly violates the privacy and rights of Americans, a process that was begun by the previous party in power. Please stay on the tail of the Thai government and news media, Mr Burin, so that the same thing does not happen here. Every day in letters to ''PostBag'' and postings on your website there are calls for the removal of the Pheu Thai government on grounds ranging from corruption and economic mismanagement to having dodgy ''pen pals'' in the Middle East.
My question is: Who or what would these people put in Pheu Thai's place?

They can't be planning to leave it to the voters, because all the indications are that they would re-elect Ms Yingluck and the Pheu Thai Party and they might even give them an increased majority. I can't believe they're planning to cobble together another Democrat-led coalition; the last one led to bloody clashes and the voters kicked it out the first chance they got.
Tom Kha is to die for. Went there the other night , has a prawn pad thai, was good but the chicken yellow curry we had with coconut rice was supurb, best Ive had in Australia or Thailand. Service friendly, can bring your own wine, will be back again. Own or manage this property?
