    Thai charity runer raises over 70 million baht and government trying to take 50% tax.

    Anyone know anything about a major outrage on the Internet between the Thai people and the government over a Thai charity runner who has raised millions of baht and the government are trying to take 50% in tax.
    Apparently it's causing quite a storm in Thailand.

    I intended to write "will the charities actually get that amount" before l opened the thread.

    Not surprising they want a piece of the action.
    It'll cause a lot of outrage, which will won't be enough to stop it happening.

    Thailand...the hub of being number one in the whole world

    I've told this story before, but back in 2005 I was given a large number of unwanted toys by a Duty Free company to give to orphaned kids in Phuket.

    When they arrived, some fucking corrupt little somchai slapped his beady little eyes on them and said there was Bt300,000 duty for them.

    Fortunately, it being the Middle East, I was able to make contact with someone in the government (well, chatted to him in the pub), who got a very nice fax sent to the Thai Foreign Ministry explaining that I was acting on their behalf.

    When I arrived, fat somchai and his friends were out at the airport with what was clearly an embarrassing (for them) welcome reception.

    I had to pay a few thousand baht for the paperwork and off we went.

    I gave them all that fake fucking smile they usually give you, really went overboard. Enjoyed every minute of it.

    35 million is a fair wedge, but I would imagine if it's gone public, whatever thieving little fucker had his eye on it will hopefully crawl back under his rock and wait for another farang to rob.

    Gov aint going near it.

    The Somchais who are hangin off the boot strings of the runners may be into it though .

    No way its all guna go to the Hospitals.

    Not in this fukin corrupt shit hole anyway.

    So much for the ongoing corruption-free schemes.

    Same as it ever was.
