  1. All sweet and innocent - butter wouldn't melt The problem seems to be that they still do not acknowledge that dabbling in slavery was wrong. Maybe a bit of contrition and facing up to what they did would be more helpful rather than trying to blame others.

    There was a thread in forum support yesterday - Tech Doctor is waiting for a new plugin for tapatalk apparently.
  3. The UK have a similar system where excise taxes are announced in the budget, some with immediate effect and i don't hear a lot of complaints about them not leaking the details before hand. My irony meter has gone into overdrive that someone is ranting about speculation being wildly wrong on Thai Visa.
  4. Thai Gov is pushing BoT to cut interest rates at their meeting next week which could weaken the baht if they obey. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-18/strong-baht-pits-bank-of-thailand-against-government-on-rate-cut Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

    Thailand 4.0 summed up in one photo.
  6. Would have to agree as well that the only issues I have had there over the last few years have been petty ones and not worth getting upset about such as some photocopies needing redoing as not clear enough or having to hand draw a map as the google maps print off was no longer acceptable - easily fixed on the spot. I find the people I know that have problems with immigration at Jomtien and complain incessantly are either those who haven't made the effort/don't understand the requirements no matter how many times you explain them or those that don't meet the requirement and are using agents, usually because they don't have the funds.

    Depending on which side of the fence you sit on does Gisela Stuart, Chair of the Vote Leave campaign, count? Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    With the drop in sterling, UK companies are cheap at the moment when you are valuing them in a foreign currency. One of the possible options for our future trading arrangements with the EU could be joining EFTA with a big stumbling block to joining being the agreement of Norway so them having large investments here is promising for such a deal and would mean their investments increasing significantly in value since it would be very positive for sterling.
  9. He only became PM in the first place due to a deal engineered by the military to partner him up with Newin thus avoiding an election and seeking the publics opinion. The hypocricy of this man is breathtaking.
  10. Appears to be someone claiming being born in a British colony is not British enough to express opinions about Great Britain. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. Certainly odd since yesterdays reports on this clearly mentioned Red Bull and the pictures in the press also showed the signs that had been put up with the Red Bull logo on them.

    They fouled up the election through a combination of poor planning, poor execution and ignoring the advice of their most senior election strategist. Since the same people responsible for making these decisions are still in place it is hardly an inspiring situation given the importance of getting a good deal with the EU.

  14. Carefull - it is the NI religious fundamentalists that are propping up the current govt so they can't afford to upset them with those sort of ideas. Maybe renationalising Eire is an option?

    Not sure if you properly read the article posted by Grouse but you do not appear to have understood what is being proposed as this new, suggested legislation is aimed at neutering parliament and effectively transfer the power of committees to government by removing the need for those parliamentary committees to reflect the number of seats held by parties in the HoC. Maybe this article better explains what is being proposed: http://www.politico.eu/article/theresa-may-push-to-ease-brexit-law-through-house-of-commons/ Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
