Glad to hear you put a shirt on under the suit.
Do you often wear it with a Tee?

Non-imm O visa's will suit 3 of my neighbours [one is ~45 y.o] who work offshore in geology, oil & gas exploration. Immigration will then know where they reside and what income they have. They own their homes and pose no criminal risk ... so no problem.
Problem is going to be leaving to get an TV and getting back in to apply for an Non Imm O Visa.

I know for fact that the Thai Consulate in Brissy only gives an O visa to those over 50. Also Melbourne does O's but only for 6 months and by memory over 50's as well.

Not sure about other countries but places like Hull in the UK weren't easy any more.

Problematical for offshore workers making a TV application? Sure.

Or how would legalizing the growing of opium not benefit countries like Colombia, Afghanistan, Myanmar or even Thailand not benefit their own country?

Thailand had the visa exemption for a very long time, and the re-entry possibility allowed Thailand to benefit, without getting people reaching anything more than a temporary tourist status..
Only when economics go up, the viewpoint may change.. And it did in the eyes of the generals..

But it was never a loophole, it was a policy!
WTF is that about??

^ and the bloke you mention who is under 50 and been working here.
Mmmh ... clearly illegal, in more ways than one, I'll ask him when next opportunity arises. If I see him again.

Overstayers . . . next step in the clean-up
I don't have a problem with this, laws are clear enough

Will this create a rush of 'volunteers' who have at present stayed less than the 90 days? or risk getting 'apprehended' and face a longer penalty, for less than 90 days?

They've backed off - Apprehended in the original draft had a life ban.

in light of this latest crackdown of the week - what ID do other BMs carry on them?

I headed away by bus weekend before last, stopped at two army checkpoints but appeared they were only looking for Cambodians without work permits - fortunate as I didn't have my passport or copy with me - only ID I had was a NZ MasterCard and don't think that would have got me far; now copies of passport page and current visa page - one each for motorbike, bicycle and wallet, better than being 'apprehended' as a possible overstayer, waiting for someone to bring proof along that I'm here legally.

**************

One more for ID - last week went to local branch of Bangkok Hospital for first time; had been told when booking made to bring my passport. Apart from them scanning/copying it and having an ID photo taken for their 'system' they also held on to my passport while I was there, got it back after I'd paid.
I did have an attendant with me the whole time too, apart from escorting me to the various depts (and showing me the coffee machines, but not offering to make for me!) she may also have been a 1.5m security/martial arts expert in case I tried to do a runner.
Go back there tomorrow - see if the passport business was for first-time patients only.

My wife had Bupa Platinum when she was living in Thailand
She went to Bangkok Hospital and with her being Thai she said the admitting personnel's attitude towards her did a 360 once she showed her card
