The week that was in Thailand news: Jeez! Must pack and take a plane and get me to Blighty once again!

I've yet to take the Thai family for this London delicacy, something that will be rectified on my next visit. I wonder what they'll make of Manze's in Peckham?

Safe journey on China Southern. Actually going from Gor gai to Kor kwai. If you know your Gai Kwai Kuat.

You're a braver man than me.

Actually I contemplated travelling in 3 weeks time via Eurowings till I realised their German name was in part Fartges.

My sympathy, like yours I'm sure, goes to the low income pensioners trying in many cases to support a family, as well as themselves. With very little help from the British embassy.

It just goes to show the percentage of decision making tw*ts in that institution, which we paid for over the years, has increased rather than reduced.

I share your suspicion of 'sidewalks and gas stations' but use checks instead of cheques at your scrabble tournament and you'll be OK.

Well said, overherebc. Distinctly "I'm all right Jack - look at me; how clever I am at obtaining Permanent Residence".

I'm pleased for you rooster - pleased that at least one of us Brits is going to be OK when the new rules take effect.

 

But you don't have to be so <deleted> smug about it and we definitely don't need your patronising, sneering and insultingly, crass comments.

However. you jolly well 'pop off' to good old Blighty. Enjoy yourself and then everyone here can read on your return, your condescending and sneering comments about "The land of our birth"!

 

By the way. One of my pensions is from 26 years served in the Royal Navy. You appear not to have served your country 'of birth' but you may wish to know that it is only recently that the end of the Falklands War was commemorated. Whatever your thoughts regarding Thatcher - Great Britain lost dozens of patriotic and brave members of the Armed forces. 'Down South' during that conflict.

 

You sir. haven't earned the right to criticise us pensioners and Thailand certainly hasn't earned the right to tax my Armed Forces pension either!

Those who can, do.

Those who cannot, teach.

 

I believe the original quote used 'criticise' and not 'teach'

high tax rates and no benefits were part of the reason I left Thailand. Now in NZ free schools, medical, dental and low taxes certainly make life easier. no to mention residency for my kids mum was straight forward and completed in 2 years. she can even work if she wants to.  Thailand is probably best left for retirement.
