  1. I say this as someone who thinks Brexit is an utterly stupid idea but I have to admit: JRM has a very good point here.
  2. Good to see that you agree that normal transport will be severely impaired. Have fun with your hard Brexit and you might have to wait quite a bit longer for that bottle to arrive..... Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. And what if parliament does not give its nod? I think you forgot about the EU. If the 29th of March passes without a deal, the EU will conclude the UK has left regardless of whether a nod was given by the British parliament. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. You mean like: "nobody can know what happens if you jump off the cliff until you hit the rocks below?"
  5. No it isn't. Why do so many on this forum have such a limited idea of what democracy is about?

    Toxic smog settles in for long haul

    Every year the air pollution is a big problem in the North of Thailand and nothing is ever really done about it. Not going to be different for Bangkok.
  7. That only confirms that the UK needs the EU more than the other way around. So why would the EU offer better terms?
  8. It doesn't need any votes. It is the default outcome if nobody prevents it from happening.

    Poll shows Gen Prayut most suitable to be next PM

    Unfortunately an election in Thailand does not necessarily mean that the next government will be less corrupt. Clearly it is more than time for the military to step aside but it does not guarantee that Thailand as a whole will be better off. If the electorate restores all of those political dinosaurs to power nothing will have improved and corruption will continue unabated.

    Poll shows Gen Prayut most suitable to be next PM

    What Thailand needs most is a government that is not corrupt. In the end that could be more important than whether it was elected or not.

    Poll shows Gen Prayut most suitable to be next PM

    Bit of a devil's advocate; but actually so far nobody has suggested a more suitable PM than Prayuth.... So maybe the poll is right after all By the way, I do not like Prayuth, but a return to somebody of the Shin clan as PM would in my opinion be even worse.
  12. All that Greece, Italy or Hungary have to do is to send a letter that they trigger article 50. They have not done so. Why? Obviously, because they do not want to leave the EU. Your comment is nonsense.
  13. Those French can get a bit emotional. Local folklore, don't worry too much about it, it is not like 1789.
