  1. Yes that is his normal routine avoiding the cold in Germany. He will return to Germany sometime in April and then returns again in October having obtained a new visa.
  2. My German friend obtained a Multiple Entry Non Immigrant O Visa at the Berlin Embassy and is approaching the 3 months when he must leave Thailand and then re-enter. Is there any restriction as to what border entry he can use e.g Nong Khai seems to be the most convenient for him at the moment. He has been using this type of visa for several years and it allows him to stay in Thailand up to 6 months so long as he leaves at least once at the 3 month point. However he is a little concerned that the regulations may have changed.
  3. I have a Thai and English will with the instruction that should I die while back in the UK that a death certificate is forwarded to my Thai lawyer. Will that death certificate need to be certified by the British embassy before it can be used here? I met with the example last year where I arrived on a new passport along with my old passport and my retirement extension stamp. When I went to Chaeng Wattena they told me that I needed to get the new passport certified by the British embassy each time it seems you do something now new bank account, new passport, driving licence the British embassy exact a fee for doing almost nothing.
  4. I think the Met Police Commissioner still recalls the dreadful mistake that was made with respect to Jean Charles De Menezes

    Unbelievable, sterling hits a 30 year low as a result of Brexit which causes import prices to rise and therefore inflation. Then the BoE announces that they are considering an interest rate rise to combat this inflation which cause sterling to rise and in Brexit land its back with heads in the sand.

    This is one of the most bizarre argument I have ever had, the UK like all members of the EU has to apply for an export licence for conventional arms but somehow this does not imply control. You will probably get the answer a driving licence is not an export licence.

    It doesn't matter how many times you twist and turn if you have to apply for a licence that implies control even a dog licence.

    I didn't think I would have to explain the obvious. https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/germany/2011-06-16/secrets-germanys-success just what is available is enough.You do know they are the World's second largest exporter. As a share of its economy, Germany’s manufacturing sector is twice the size of Britain’s – 23% of national GDP, compared with 11%, according to the World Bank. Unlike Britain, it runs a large surplus on trade in goods.

    Keeping tabs what a joke, even keeping tabs implies control. We give out dog licences and TV licences which don't control any dogs or TVs but they keep tabs on them.

    I don't think he knows nothing but obviously the Germans know a lot more about manufacturing than does Dyson and if we were going to follow any model I think theirs has been a lot more successful that anything Dyson has done or is proposing.

    It says licensing and licensing implies some form of control. In order to get an export licence they need to meet eight common criteria. That seems perfectly straightforward if there were no controls why would you need an export licence?

    I see you have avoided the real issue. You were implying that Dyson was some sort of authority on manufacturing well it appears the Germans have maintained a very highly successful manufacturing industry so they really do know something about these things. Dyson went from being an avid supporter of Europe and the Euro as a result of a lost legal challenge.

    I agree my OP should have said pre Brexit which aright knew but he implied there were no control and it appears the EU does have a licensing system which implies some form of control over conventional arms sales.

    Don't address the subject just pick up on a simple mistake
