Went to Jungceylon at Patong yesterday, not looking in car boot like at central (you can have a bomb on back seat and that's ok) lol.
They are not checking rucksacks as you go in either, so much for high alert!

So what does this mean...?... that all police had to report immediately to the station and pull up a chair in front of CCTV with the hopes they can see it happen?... or now the police will be looking carefully into tourists motorbike seats for bombs.  Heaven help this place if anyone really wanted to cause mayhem.

A reliable "news" source not an "intelligence" source? Hmmm, doesn't give you a very secure feeling does it?
