  1. Past hour
  2. No one can claim anything immediately other than refugees, economic migrant is a bit of a general term, I guess I am one in Thailand, those who go to the UK to work are economic migrants, and none of them can claim before they have worked and until they pass the habitual residency test, they must be able to demonstrate that they have strong ties to the UK, it was the case that EU immigrants could claim after just 3 months of working but that changed last year and now they can't until they have been in the UK for 4 years, it remains 5 years for non EU immigrants.
  3. Perhaps he should have said the house that he lives in that his wife owns. Does that make you any happier? Most people on Thai Visa understand that but only nit picking pedantic people pick on the words and NOT the meaning behind them.
  4. Those Latter Day Saints must have the proverbial patience of their namesakes.
  5. Also, moving beyond semantics and legal technicalities into the realm of (almost) universal ethics and morality, let us remember : "Article 11. (1) Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence." Universal Declaration of Human Rights http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/
  6. Not really. As water is actually wet, your reply here would imply my point was obvious...
  7. Airport security checks

    At airports i always have to take out the laptop, i never heard of this system where you can only open the backpack to show the computer. Also the laptop always had to go in a new basket, cannot go on top of anything else. Now when i approach the check i put everything in a purse so the staff can't steal anything..also i don't want to show my wallet or so. Works well this way. It's not an issue for me to take the laptop out, only one time i grabbed the wrong laptop from the belt but luckily the owner of that laptop came to ask me about it and he happened to have the same model as me. I'm confused about this brand though, i've seen it in Thailand and always thought they were cheap copies of the real swiss brand from the swiss armyknife. But that one had a black logo iirc. I don't care much for brands though but am fond of high quality things, especially when i put my valuables in them. Last flight i brought a new laptop to Thailand, i wanted to bring the old one as well to give it to my thai cousin but didn't dare it, i was scared the customs would think i brought this new one to sell it to a Thai. Laptops are much cheaper in Europe. I wonder how many laptops we can bring before they start asking questions or demand importtax.
  8. Unfortunately Thai visa rules adhere to 'fair usage' principles, so people are only allowed to quote a little bit of the evidence available in the articles. You need to click on the links to see the volumes of evidence stacking up against your orange hero. I posted one such link earlier today. Did you read it? If you did what were your thoughts?
  9. worked for my at Kho Samet and Noong Nooch Pataya
  10. Of course she made him an UPSTANDING citysen.
  11. Looking to buy a new lawnmower

    I would suggest buying a Honda UMK 435 backpack strimmer. Spares and service are easy to come by and consumables are available at most good hardware stores. They come in around 9,000 baht when I last looked not so long ago. Mine is about 8 years old and still works well.
  12. Medical Supply help

    maybe try getting a Thai person to buy for you,
  13. Do you think Trump will be impeached or forced to resign?

    "Recounting his decision to dismiss Comey, Trump told NBC News, “In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.’” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-says-fbi-director-comey-told-him-three-times-he-wasnt-under-investigation-once-in-a-phone-call-initiated-by-the-president/2017/05/11/2b384c9a-3669-11e7-b4ee-434b6d506b37_story.html? Clearly it's just an obvious coincidence that Trump was thinking of the Russian investigation when he fired Comey. He might just as well have been thinking about an extra scoop of ice cream for dessert or a round of golf. Clearly the 2 are not connected. Here's another piece of evidence that has absolutely no significance WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/19/us/politics/trump-russia-comey.html?_r=0 McMaster does not deny details of Trump’s discussion with Russian officials White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster on Sunday did not deny that President Trump discussed his motivation for firing FBI Director James B. Comey in an Oval Office meeting with Russian officials this month. McMaster would not directly address details of the meeting, but he did not deny reports that Trump revealed classified intelligence information in that meeting and told the Russian officials that Comey’s firing eased “great pressure” on the White House. McMaster said only that Trump was speaking about his desire to find common ground with the Russians. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/05/21/mcmaster-does-not-deny-details-of-trumps-discussion-with-russian-officials/?utm_term=.ed95e0b59c10 It's just another coincidence. It happened to ease "great pressure" on him but in no way could it be inferred that this easing of pressure had been in any way an incentive to fire Comey..

  16. wrong, Its law , You have to carry a copy of your passport, Or passport.
  17. Is already a bad theatrical act. Brexit is economically a lose-lose situation, in which each party tries to win at the expense of the other party. The negotiations are all about damage limitation. Brexit as dead birth. Losers in the global world competition:Total Europe, including the UK with its independence sausage. .
  18. Wonder. Before they were 63 baht but now down to 60
  19. I have never had credit, a part from a mortgage which was paid of 10 years ago, Don't have a credit card, borrowed £500 back in 1971, Yet the government keep saying every household is in debit, Done everything the Government advised, Own your own House, have money in the Bank and have pensions, Like most people, the pensions have been devalued, Interest rates are non existent, I should have just pisst it up the wall and gone on Benefits like most
  20. In the interests of trying to stay on topic could everyone please quote what they are referring to in an article when trying to provide reference material. I have spent 2 days trying to fend off about 10 anti Trumpists who send reams of links with not one bit of substantiated evidence that I can see. Sure, there is plenty of speculation, and yes, Trump is linked to a few things in life that may not be all that great, but we are talking about impeachment. So all of the other BS means nothing. Show me a link and Quote the text so I don't have to read a book, where there is actual evidence. Thanks for your kind understanding.
  21. For the Americans on here ^^^^^^is called humour.
