Rats dine at unhealthy parliament canteen

BANGKOK: Health officials confirmed the poor standard of hygiene at the parliament when they inspected the place today (Mar 31), after a picture of a rat daringly eating ready-to-serve food in the canteen was shared among officials there.

The health officials said the canteen of the parliament club was a building addition, with plywood walls that rats had chewed holes through to enter the food area.

Just outside the walls there were piles of garbage and clogged drains full of stinking water and food scraps. Food containers inside the canteen were also dirty.

It would need a full day’s work just to clean the place up, said Dicha Khongsri, Assistant Chief of Dusit district where the parliament stands, who accompanied the health officials.

He also said demonstrators who rallied at the parliament yesterday (Mar 30) prevented garbage collectors from entering the place.

Mr Dicha said he would organise hygiene training for people handling food there.

Chatraporn Wiwatwanit, a parliament affairs official, said she would ask district officials to trap the rats there.

"Chatraporn Wiwatwanit, a parliament affairs official, said she would ask district officials to trap the rats there" they're easy to find, they are the ones with two(2) legs, shouldn't be too hard, just wave a few brown envelopes around, they will come running.

"Organise hygiene training"! Of course no-one would have thought to have checked when they hired the staff that they were trained in hygiene before they were allowed to start work! No need to train, they know everything already, just ask them, nobody ever says they don't know something!

Hahaha, great article! I love it!
A fine proof that health authorities not doing their job as it should be done.
Usual thing I guess, shuffle papers in a aircon office, that make everything alright.
Tiger paper work while sitting in office arm chair.
Not doing the real job. hahaha. 
As we know, the rats are very intelligent.
They ignore office paper shuffling tigers. 
Fact that a rat likes ...
