  1. 'There is a significant difference between 'must not turn on your lights' and 'must turn on your lights'. Turning on your lights when it's dark is mandatory, leaving them off when it's not dark is not mandatory, which is what you implied. There is no argument.
  2. Nonsense. Section 11 of the Thai Traffic Laws states: ''If it gets dark and you cannot see clearly more than 150m, you must turn on the headlight''.
  3. Thanks for all your advice guys. All seems straightforward to me. (Makes a change for Thailand!) Big move is on for this coming week and I've already downloaded the required forms and located the IO in town.
  4. Hi Guys. I would like some advice please regarding moving house. I'll soon be moving from Udon Thani to Sakon Nakhon, which means a change of province and Immigration Office of course. I'm currently on a marriage extension through Udon Thani office and I'm getting some very conflicting information regarding notification of my move. Do I report my move to the office in Sakon Nakhon or to my original office in Udon, where my file is held? Do I report immediately on moving, or do I report the fact on my next 90 day report, which is due in December? Each time I research this on-line, I come up with a different answer, including one that said that report the fact to an address in Bangkok! Not very likely I would have thought. If anyone out there has some practical experience and knowledge on this scenario, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks in anticipation.
  5. Well, no you can't. Because that how democracy works. However, in a general election, once the parties are over, they get down to business. But this Brexit is turning out to be such a divisive issue that a collective 'think again' could well be on the cards. I'm not saying it will, but I for one would like to see it happen.
  6. A quick scan of the voting statistics tell me that 38% of registered voters voted for Brexit, 35% voted for remain and 27% were no shows. My interpretation of that is that a minority of voters were hoodwinked by Nigel, Boris and the likes, a smaller minority saw common sense And good too many, who should have got off their butts, didn't! I suspect that many of them thought 'It couldn't possibly happen, so I'll not bother'. But it did! I agree, if another referendum were called now, there would be a massive rush to the polling stations to get this calamitous decision reversed. But, have those up there got the courage to admit that Cameron made a huge blunder?
  7. Note to self: Do not go live on Samui! Good luck with that little lot.
  8. Sounds like a 'Samui rule'. I did receive a 9 month extension at Udon Thani in the same circumstances.
  9. Tropical Crotch Rot

    Two points on this one. Make sure you're dealing with the right issue. So called 'Jock Itch' is a fungal infection, whilst Prickly Heat is a rash caused by blockage of the sweat glands. And the treatment for the two is different. It seems to me that the OP has got his diagnosis correct and if so, prickly heat powder, such as Snake Brand is not appropriate. I got advice regarding Jock Itch a long time ago from an RAF doctor in Singapore. 'Dump the jocks'. I mean it. I never wear them at all now and I've never any problems down there. Swing free OP and you troubles could be over.
  10. And perhaps study the 'Rochdale Grooming Case' and others in UK, which have a lot of similarities to this dreadful business. This is certainly not 'Thailand in all its glory'. (An unfortunate choice of words if I may say so!)
  11. Carrying a weapon, purely for ones own defence, mainly an American habit of course, may be excused, although, I as a Brit, wholly disapprove. But this is clearly not the case here. To pull out a weapon in a public place and make threatening gestures indicate intent. And that would not happen if he did not have in his possession. What other reason could be for his actions?
  12. Yes it does. But that's not the point. Carrying a weapon indicates intent, whether it is used to threaten or not.
  13. The person wearing the safety helmet is the engineer recovering the body!
  14. Please go back through this thread and read again. You'll find plenty of entries that scoff at this idea in one way or another. But back to the topic, yes you're right, a bank account is not necessary for M-Pesa system. All one needs a mobile phone account. But that's immaterial. A phone pay system like this can be used for micro purchases, such the noodle stand, the village store, bus fares. The sort of payments that wouldn't be in the realm of bank cards or bank transfers. And everyone has a phone and knows how use it. That's the beauty of this system.
