Report on nurses a real tonic

Re: "Critical condition", National, October 15.



This report has stirred me to be nice to all nurses in future. The poor pay and maltreatment of nurses from ministers and other officials has been unbelievably pathetic. And this comes in a period of so much waste in public spending, as in the case of the Bt350-million purchase of an airship that has never been off the ground since being delivered in July 2011. The laissez faire attitude of some Thais causes one to weep, and even some foreigners are asking whether we are morons or brain-dead.

Thank you for this special report excellently presented - short, sharp and indisputable. Can we have similar reports on other professions, such as engineers, or scams in tourism? You will be doing our country a great favour.
