US Government Tagged to Bail Out Phuket Property Market

Category: Tourism, Posted:05 Jul 2009 | 13:13 pm

Citizen journalist Bill Barnett of daily online newsite thephuketinsider.com has invited US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to a one on one dialogue during her upcoming visit for the Asean Forum to speak about a possible US Government bail out of the stressed Phuket property market. Barnett commented "if the US can bail out those dummies like failed banks and even the dubious Big 3 automakers, then why not inject it into a sector which actually has potential upside. Unlike those anti-American trouble makers Castro, Chavez and Ahmadinejad this island likes the Yanks, just look at how many McDonalds, Starbucks, KFC's and Pizza Huts there are.'

The epic 'one on one' straight talk session is already being likened to the Ali Frazer Thrilla in Manila or more recently Frost vs. Nixon (the movie that is) though with a more modern Ryan Seacrest post OJ in a white ford bronco tone. According to reliable sources an official invitation has already seen sent along with number of follow up phone calls to Washington DC; ironically no return calls have been received yet. We understand though through a clerical error in the sites office that an oversight on paying the telephone bill did cause a disruption of service which may explain all. A spokesman for the site who has asked not to be identified has said the staff member involved has been severely reprimanded, though back of the recent ban on canings in Singapore and a global frown on water boarding that more subtle disciplinary action has been administered, which does no leave any permanent scars.
We asked Bill Barnett what inspired his call to action for the Hillary meet, who mused" I'm just sick and tired of this Michael Jackson media circus, we need a reason to wake up in the morning and watch the news, Jacko has joined Elvis in Rock and Roll Heaven, so we have to get on with our lives. Citizen journalism is the last bastion of true freedom, look at me, I'm just a guy with a bad attitude, one of those Flip Mino video cams that even a trained seal could operate and internet access."
As to what he sees his opening lines would be to one of the most important diplomats or our lifetime, he pauses for a moment and says"Hillary, its Bill."

(Editors note: apparently the other Bill, meaning former US President Bill Clinton has not been asked to come on the Thailand diplomatic mission due to the current Thai fad of Monica Lewinsky style haircuts).
