Problem with local Officialdom is they make a big poe-ha about small issues. The real big issues they walk around/don't want to address.. To tiring, not have knowledge about it, scare to disturb influential persons, etc. Six more months Phuket enters the next dry season! What they start to do now to make sure Phuket by than has normal water supply, not the  same bad recent water situation ?

"The laugh stock of the month" Actually this price is reserved for you,every month. Luckily it  is not up to some crazy expat to decide what crime the RTP  should go after .

If you like yourself  as RTP , wow, in a joined operation (!), make yourself the laugh stock of the month than with this article they are very successful.  Nothing better to do on Phuket than disturbing older people who enjoy themselves and do no harm to others? Patrol the Phuket roads, do a real job. Catch dangerous killing driving traffic law violaters! Stop the Phuket road carnage.
