  1. I hope you've noted the continued anti-junta line in the paper, especially Surasek's column comparing Prayut to Hun Sen the other day
  2. I know very well how it works. I also know there was something of a delighted atmosphere among staff after he left. Read for yourself, see if the editorial tone changes at all.
  3. The Guardian piece was based purely on Mr Pandev's Facebook post, which I recommend people read to see his actual level of ability with written English... Khaosod actually interviewed some employees. I've never heard of any censorship being forced upon the BKP editorial staff beyond the regular moans that it, and all papers, receive from the Junta. If you'd just been sacked for mismanagement, it'd be a smart move to paint it as though you were some kind of crusading martyr...
  4. They basically flat out refused me at two branches. I think they're pretty intent on making the switch. I got myself a Kasikorn Visa and just use that instead now. The Bangkok Bank UnionPay is just a backup now.
  5. I tried a UnionPay debit card in the UK last August and had no luck at any ATM. Bangkok Bank are flat out refusing to give me a Visa card now, so Im off to Kasikorn.
  6. Flat refusals for Visa cards for me from two Bangkok Bank branches. I'm off to Kasikorn, although they expect an original copy of my work permit which i had to get from my office today as a copy wasn't sufficent.

    It's the hospital named on my Thai social security. As far as I'm aware it's both government and private.

    No, I wouldn't discount it all. I might investigate getting it done there instead. My government hospital is Kluay Nam Thai. Not sure how good that one is. Ninja Edit: What sedation did you get?

    Was that a government hospital price? I was recommended to have one, but the Sukhumvit Hospital estimate was 25-30k.
  13. Plenty of people get long terms over here for lese majeste for tweets and posts.

    What's the hype with "green tea?"

    Oh, those things are dreadful. Just as bad for you as any soft drink.
