And still stubborn. Still that Thailand Pass.  Would be great when TAT use her magic calculator and publish how many foreign tourists are NOT going for holiday to Thailand because of that Thailand Pass. If you read the whole entering explanation the Thailand Pass has no function anymore. It is just a regimental control thing of the old Thai rulers. Control for the sake of control only.
