I admire Vice Governor Jamleran Tipayapongtada stepping up and saying it as he sees it. And of course he is spot on. But in saying that he knows damn well why nothing has been done - local officials get paid plenty of tea money to keep these illegal business in operation.

And if, at the end of the week, nothing had been done?

As the first paragraph says: ''You have until the end of this week or the Department of Special Investigation will investigate you.''
Good for him. First time I've seen a VG give a deadline. I hope they stick to it.

Sounds like a truly positive step, but not convinced about the 7 days. I understand a time frame must be set, in doing so perhaps they could list the (possible) reprocussions of missing said deadline?

Question:Who decides about the sunchairs, who can put them on the beach, and how many. Who is getting all the Money? A fortune I guess, with minimal investment...
