A 31 year old Thai student at the University of Manchester says everyone, regardless of where they’re from, gets a free Covid-19 vaccine.

I was an English teacher for six years in Thailand. A coworker taught geography, and on his midterm and final exams, he would include this question: "Draw a map of the major continents of the world." A disturbing number of them would draw a map of Thailand. That is a common attitude, that Thailand is the only real country in the world.

This junta is so committed to looking up its own orifice that it will not pay any attention to anywhere else. Corruption, vested interests of the elites, personal agendas are all that count amongst this rotten mob. A fish rots from it's head and this one is decomposing in front of our eyes.

Somehow, the people of Thailand need to be taught that (TCKU) Thailand is the center of the known universe is a nationalistic fiction, just alot of drivel, and could not possibly be further from the truth. 

Smart nations, who are in trouble, take advice from others. Smart nations heading toward a crisis, accept assistance from other nations. Thailand in it's never ending hubris and arrogance, even denied the help of the WHO's COVAX program. What can one even say?

 

Government spokesman Anucha Buraphachaisri, responding to media reports that Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country to skip the WHO’s COVAX scheme, said that as a middle-income country Thailand is not eligible for free or cheap vaccines under the programme.

“Buying vaccines directly from the manufacturers is an appropriate choice... as it’s more flexible,” Anucha said.

Well, that worked out quite well Anucha, didn't it?

I have a British friend who married a very nice Thai woman. Both are sophisticated and well educated. He took her back to his estate (yeah, it's beautiful!). After the visit, they returned to Thailand where she told him she was ashamed of Thai people. Paradigm shifted forever.
