why is it stange or stupid to discuss what happens
half the country pays and the other half recieves
much like our tax system
I agree that would be another piece of corruption swept under the table. The nation as a whole should be aware of this.
Here's tae us, wha's like us, damn few, and they're a' deid. Mair's the pity!

As a dual citizen of Thailand with an older brother, I can tell you that, yes, if you are a citizen of Thailand and want to keep said citizenship, you must register for the draft. As a (I'm guessing half white?) citizen of the UK, it should be very easy to get him a job in, say, an medical unit or administration, and he would probably be favored above most of the orher people there. If he's more than half Thai, however, he's not quite as special.

must register at age 18 and stand for the draft lottery in his 21st year unless exempted for a number of reasons..

if living in the UK and holding a Thai passport, I'd recommend going to the Thai Embassy for official guidance...
