Admirers of the handsome Chiang Mai Mayor Tessanai Buranapakorn, Nephew of Provincial Administrative Organisation President Boonlert B, may regret the fact that since the abrupt change of government last May, the seemingly endless procession of new posters on the streets of town showing our leader’s exploits have come to an end.
To compensate, at various locations around town, however Little Nephew’s eyes in the form of spy cameras will be recording our every move.
An apparent adjunct to this new costly paraphernalia are blue boxes in strategic locations. The one below is a few metres from a pair of cameras and strategically placed between two 24 hour grocery outlets.
Perhaps the fact that traffic police are failing to enforce the prohibition on obstructing the footpath, thereby increasing the likelihood of injury to pedestrians is a factor in choosing the location of this device?
Apparently the much heralded clean sweep of the footpaths of Bangkok is yet to reach the Rose of the North.
