Are there no governor jobs to do for a Governor. I think here about is promises to Consuls and Ambassadors, but again yesterday 2 tour boats full with Chinese tourist became a Phuket disaster due to lack of Government strict safety rules. Has this Governor no job priorities? The 2 tour boat disasters with mainly Chinese tourist became world tv/press news around the globe, mr Governor.
