    Cardiff City

    Why have they decided to play in red after 104 years.....to sell more shirts?
  2. Yep, you didn't get him so forget him.
  3. Just the opposite. A major house cleaning in order. Why leave spies and possible coup mongers in place ? If you get the right manager in you'll challenge Chelsea for the title. The chavs will spend big as per usual and become another efficient Moutinho engine. Utd Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool will fight over the scraps Isn't Moutinho the guy Spurs were after?

  5. Twenty five sets of Linguaphone's learn Spanish the easy way have been ordered. Players have said "eesa no fair weeva beena learna italiano longa time now".

    Twin Bomb Explosions Shatter Boston Marathon Finish Line

    Sympathetic friends?......They are not covering up a late night curfew or a drinking party in the dorm, they are covering up an horrendous Islamic terrorist atrocity, that has ruined or had an impact hundreds if not thousands of lives. They are helping to cover up one of the most heinous, despicable and cowardly crimes in US history. Apparently they received a text message saying "take what you want from the flat". In their wisdom (not naivety) they removed a backpack, dumped a computer in the garbage and removed vaseline. Now before the sniggers start, how would they know to remove vaseline, which is often used in bomb making??? Of course they haven't been found guilty of anything yet, but if they are charged and get found guilty, I hope they receive the absolute maximum.

    Twin Bomb Explosions Shatter Boston Marathon Finish Line

    I haven't heard the government specifically put the death penalty out on the table at this point. It's certainly been widely discussed publically and, I'm sure, inside the White House and the Justice Department, very likely with the Department of Homeland Security too. The feds do have the option in the United States Code [of laws]. I'm hearing from media, which is all I have at present, that the government wants the cold and brutal mass murderer Dzhokhar to talk more while it holds the sword of Damocles over his head, as it were. I should think Dzhokhar's lead lawyer, a death penalty Houdini, Judith Clarke, would welcome such a development both from the standpoint of her, er, profession, i.e., as a sworn member of the bar and as a patriot. I still don't see the indifferent mass murderer Dzhokhar as suicidal or as having a martyr syndrome. A seemingly quite unassuming guy, he was happy to yak continuously with investigators once he was able to do so in the hospital, until he got the reality check of being Mirandized. I'd bet he'd be happy as a pig in sh*t to resume his narrative in exchange for his life, miserable as it's going to be either way. Yep, 19 years old and the worlds his oyster......enjoy.

    Giving him the death penalty will make him a super star among Islamic terrorists. I reckon he can spend the next 70 years or so in isolation, studying his precious ideology and reflecting on the great deed he has done. Within a few months he will be forgotten by his 'brothers and sisters' and will just be a nothing, a nobody......just rotting away slowly.....slowly.

    Dentists, Are There Any On Thaivisa?

    This are a lot of special forces, SAS, SEALS etc, but not too many dentists. I'm sure someone is googling away at this very moment and I think a dentist will appear eventually. Hopefully, you might get lucky and I do hope you get some good advice and your problem sorted.
  10. Quote Post 46 "Why the agro, not necessary! A couple of points on your posts however: I was in the UK last month for about ten days and I walked into a doctors surgery and made an appointment for about two hours later that same day, this was for a skin rask so not exactly life threatening. Also, we've/Ive applied for and recieved'a UK Settlement visa for my Thai partner two years ago, that's what we asked for and that's what they called it!" I was back last year visiting my daughter. I'm still registered with a doctor's office. Walked in asked the receptionist if my doctor was free tonight.......yes, appointment at 5-30 pm. He said "I haven't seen you for a while". I replied "no I've been in Thailand" and asked him if he would check something for me and also put some copies of MRI and other stuff on my file......no problem. Didn't even bother with the fact I hadn't seen him for ages and I had medical stuff done in Thailand. There's still a lot of nice people in the UK and a lot of sympathetic doctors, who care about people in their later years and not big fans of the way the NHS has been handled.
  11. Doppa - I see David Cameron is considering a temporary withdrawal from the European human rights convention in order to finally remove Abu Qatada from Britain........what's the reaction there? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2313511/PM-losing-patience-human-rights-court-Qatada-wins-Cameron-considers-temporary-withdrawal-finally-remove-hate-preacher.html I know the ambulances in Chiang Mai try to be efficient, but I don't believe they carry any trained staff - do they? As good as they might be no-one gets out of the way for them anyway, only for you know who. I have two BIG reasons to be eternally thankful to the British Ambulance service and their staff on board, who saved both my father and mother. Doppa, hang in there mate, you will do fine, I wish I could say the same about Newcastle.

    Re-Entry Permit

    When the flight is leaving otherwise there would be a huge overflow from the immigration office for those wanting re-entry. You can get your re-entry at any time during the validity of your visa. You mean there's a long wait at immigration? I thought people were in and out in 120 minutes. 2 hours? Or---- I must have 2 hours on the brain in reality......have edited post 11 accordingly to 20 mins, thanks

    Should We Learn The Language?

    Up to you if you learn the language, you can survive without it. Just remember a large percentage of people telling you that you should in order to integrate and understand more etc, probably don't speak it themselves.
  18. How's your hip doppa? Chin up mate, the weather's probably got to you, summer will be better.

    Twin Bomb Explosions Shatter Boston Marathon Finish Line

    Until recently there were a lot of people on the left wing, who were sort of holding out some hope that this might be a white male bomber, another Timothy McVeigh. They would have preferred anything other than a Muslim. Now that it is confirmed that the Boston bomber is a Muslim, the spinners will be frantically trying to spin the story in a politically correct direction.

    We all make choices in life. The apologists will say that the bombers were oppressed, but they were not. They were not repressed either, but they were conditioned by their culture and religion to do exactly what they did. However, behind all that conditioning was a choice. The choice was that they could have become Americans and lived a good life, but instead they chose to become Muslim terrorists.

    Mailing Rx's Back Home

    I would imagine that if it requires a prescription and there's nothing in the package to clear it, then they will simply dispose of them.
