The Thai authorities should have deported him from the start. Why put him in jail at the cost of tax payers? Isn't that adding insult to injury? And further, did he really burn anything down? Did the authorities have concrete proof? It would seem they were simply looking for scapegoats, and this stupid bastard was top on the list thanks to that video of him acting a complete fool.
So, he has now returned to the UK after living in Thailand for 9 years. I wonder what he will do now? It will be hard to adjust to life back in his home country after a decade living in the far east.
Now, if only the Thai government could send the hundreds of other wankstain foreigners packing. It would do a lot of good for the country...and for the normal people who travel or work in Thailand
