  1. A show of hands please. LOL/555

    No. I am just teasing him. Andrew knows me quite well from another topic which has come and gone. I will admit that sometimes it is hard to get the banter right but just mention meat pies and Queensland and he will understand.
  2. A show of hands please. LOL/555

    You are totally wrong..along with pension plans and would you walk a mile under the hot stinking sun to get two baht off a cup of coffee? I am waning you Andrew because you take the true concerns of expatriates far too lightly.. Time for "attitude adjustment" methinks...
  3. It was all about sea ports... The British held Calcutta, Rangoon and Singapore. They never felt that Bangkok was worth the effort tho' keeping the Froggies out was certainly worthy of due consideration...
  4. I am not a UK national. 2.What are you doing about the starving children? 3.Condemnation of others is tawdry and cheap Tho' it warms the cockles of your miserable heart. To repeat, this appeal was launched by Thais for Thais.. All honour to them.
  5. The Thai people have already commenced to do that-with or without-toxic Western interference. I think that I will leave them to it. Well done, Thai people.
  6. Yingluck gets ready to make her move

    Well...what can I say...so I refer you to "Robblok" and his very few Caucasian followers..
  7. Yingluck gets ready to make her move

    The Chinese would micturate on them from a great height of course.. When you have your snout dug deeply into the trough, happily gorging away, you are not likely to feel anything..other than immense pleasure
  8. As far as I know this "appeal" was launched by Thai villagers and assisted by a Thai personality. There is no indication that the British gentleman or his wife asked for assistance or solicieted money from the Expat community Somehow it has got onto here where the USUAL lack of charity has been displayed by Western,smug,self satisfied and emotionally rancid expatriate Caucasians who have contributed their two bob's worth albeit with the intellectual status of a bilby being displayed.. I am very sure that the Thai people will do better...
  9. Yingluck gets ready to make her move

    Yes,that is a reasonable point of view. Tho' I use the terms "Central Thai" and "Perimeter Thai".
  10. Yingluck gets ready to make her move

    Yes,but those are the breaks. As far as Thailand is concerned NO PRACTICE and no perfection. I look forward to the predictable military coup #67 or 74-whatever the godawful number is.... Sarcasm alert.
  11. Yingluck gets ready to make her move

    Yup,remains an apologist. The recantation -under a lot of heat-was purely a tactical retreat. It is also mind benumbingly boring and repetitive as he trots out the same old saws..
  12. oldlakey, Let me explain myself.Having (supposedly) escaped into the wilds of Isaan I discovered that the ONLY topic of conversation was about pensions amongst the expatriate geriatric brigade.. Therefore(with the appropriate amount of horror) I realized that I had merely escaped "God's waiting room" in OZ for an Asian version of "God's rice paddy." instead.
  13. Yingluck gets ready to make her move

    You remain a junta apologist-I thought your "recantation" last week was hilarious. Just changed to BS setting 2-"Tactful"
  14. Yep.. It's like Mr Kurtz in "Heart of Darkness"-except that Kurtz finds himself surrounded by discombobulated expatriates screaming about pensions in the middle of nowhere.. No wonder he expires muttering those immortal words..."The horror..the horror."
  15. "Nevah in the field of human intellectual endeavour has so many posted about pensions to so few"
