  1. Remember that name and that face - cos he' and his family have just had huge loss of thanks to British justice,
  2. Buddhism in the Thai context should be referred to as Thai "Buddhism" so as not to confuse the uninitiated as to the true tenets of Buddhism and once done we can just assume Thai Buddhism is just the same as any other Thai institutions. The test to apply to any of these os called holy pronouncements is ; “Ceasing to do evil, Cultivating the good, Purifying the heart: This is the teaching of the Buddhas.” The Buddha But hey it's easier to get hung up over some farang slight on an idolatrous Buddha statue than to actually gen up on what religion they are supposedly following. As the Thai Aboot of my local Wat in the Uk said "You need to be extremely careful as to which temple you attend in Thailand" - which is his diplomatic way of saying most are corrupt , have lost their way and serve no other purpose than themselves.
  3. or prostitution...err sorry they've already done that.
  4. Stopped By Police In Thailand? What You Should Do.

    Look for a couple of hapless passing Burmese workers - point at them and say "they did it" whilst sticking a 500 in their top pocket.
  5. Hundreds gather at Bangkok's Democracy Monument to demand election

    If only we had lese-Thaksin we would have a chance of redressing the balance.
  6. If there is a prize for dogged tenacity in the face of huge odds then I'm sure you would walk it. Heartwarming that at last you have an outcome that gives you some satisfaction. Just a crying shame you didn't do a course in basic Thai culture in advance. Buying off plan is a huge and well known risk. Just back from Thailand and we considered a condo in Pattaya and decided not to go down that route when we can rent cheaply if we want to spend any time in country (we don't , just short family visits from now on). Your Theppraya Road condo isn't the Supalai one by any chance ?
  7. Thanathorn hints at establishing new party later this month

    He is a clean skin without any baggage it seems and genuinely wants to see Thailand moving forward democratically. Could be one to give Prayuth sleepless nights as he sees his power slowly ebbing away. i do hope so.
  8. Brexit has created chaos in Britain – nobody voted for this

    Liverpool Mick for gawd's sake - and Brexiteers wonder why we scoff at them. What other killer facts / opinions has 'Liverpool Mick' got for our delectation I wonder?

    I'll drink a fictional beer to that.
  10. Brexit has created chaos in Britain – nobody voted for this

    and those lovely new Blue passports ...don't forget those.
  11. Brexit has created chaos in Britain – nobody voted for this

    I think this is early morning irony... and a good one at that.
  12. Brexit has created chaos in Britain – nobody voted for this

    Well nice to see we have replaced evidence based policy with my third cousin half-brother once said anecdotals. No point in poncy expensive education or troublesome facts. I feel it so it must be so. That is the tragedy of Brexit as Gove succinctly put it "Britain has and enough of experts" - yeah who needs them - why not let the local butcher have a go at Brain surgery given we have a shortage of doctors. What could possibly go wrong ?

    How about blaming Quantitative Easing (printing money) and virtual zero interest rates which stopped the banks failing after the 2007 financial crsis. The 'powers that be' are happy to see those at the bottom scrapping over scraps from their table as they loot to their heart's content. QE has resulted in a wave of money helped on by a resurgent China flooding around the world and the UK has been a pretty safe haven for this hot cash. Hence eye-watering rises in housing costs. But hey that heard working Pole down the road you can see him and his family 'doing well' i.e. working hard and responsibly for not too much money. Must be their fault then.

    Sort of sums it up really , shouty , badly spelt sloganeering.
  15. Brexit has created chaos in Britain – nobody voted for this

    pretty much in the same vein as Somchai the tuk tuk driver who blames his lack of progress on 'falangs'. It seems that people who don't get on in the world always seem to blame someone else for their troubles. Never anything to do with them.If only this , if only that ....
