Thailand’s PM has gone on record inviting ideas as to how fuel prices can be reduced following the Ukraine war and global prices skyrocketing. Either way, as of now, the subsidy to keep diesel at under 30 baht a litre, ends Sunday morning. With hauliers protesting and threatening large price increases for transport, the end result, unless the subsidy is continued WILL be higher retail prices of pretty much everything that has transport involved. Loans and funding to the Fuel Oil fund have run out and there appears to be no instant fix. Meanwhile, starting next month too, the price of electricity is set to rise across the country.  The deputy PM stated separately that the subsidies may be continued but at half their present rate, capping diesel at the pumps at 35 baht. This is for plain diesel and not the super or power variants that are popular with the public but not used commercially.

Thailand’s civil aviation authority has notified all airlines of the changes to arrival requirements for visitors as of 1 May. With the promise that the Thailand Pass will be replaced with a much easier process, vaccination certificates will be required for those not wanting to quarantine but for the most, quarantine will be a thing of the past. Airlines were also reminded that any passenger arriving without the required documentation, will be deported at the airline’s expense, so checks on departure for Thailand will continue. Basically passengers need, currently, to still use the Thailand pass, showing insurance and vax status.

Ony to find out it was a scam when the promotions lists were published, and his name wasn’t on it. Claiming that they knew top politicians and police, the trio dued him slowly, starting with a small amount and gradually increasing it. The CSD, who are investigating, believe they carried out similar scams on sme 13 other individuals, some of whom have now also come forward.

A wheelchair bound lottery seller who was beaten and robbed by a man on a bike has seen his attacker to get his comeuppance.  Police here have caught the attacker who admitted the crime after several of the victims’ property items were discovered, along with the bike used to rob him. A known druggie and gambler, the attacker robbed his mark on the roadside of the busy 35 highway, leaving him battered.

As trade is expected to return quickly to the city, signs of the times include the reversion to pedestrian use only of Walking Street. As of last night the street saw vehicular access banned, ready to accommodate the thronging crowds, when and if the return.
