  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks for that news. I've heard similar stories about expats being hit at some smaller financial institutions in Ecuador. Reading the story may prove a lesson to expats everywhere though without blaming the victims. Monex was promising very high returns. Nobody was forcing these Americans to put such large amounts of money in any Mexican bank. They could have kept most of their funds in the U.S. Sent from my Lenovo A7020a48 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. Mr. Trump consider pardoning Jonathan Pollard who's done his 30 years for espionage and now he's prevented from leaving the US to go and spend the rest of his life in true home Israel...
  4. Maybe it’ll work until the dry season or the farmers pump all the water out for their crops.
  5. Don't know why but I can never fancy a Thai woman if they have even a hint of a tash. Not talking about laydboys now, just women who have a bit of a upper lip shadow.
  6. Why take a photo of a damn hamburger?
  7. It's an established fact that most (although not all) Brexit supporters were in the low levels of attainment, education wise. The smart one's were just using them as their "useful idiots".
  8. totally misread, thank you ubonjoe, at sorry, least someones on the ball
  9. It would help if people spent 5 minutes actually reading an MSDS. They might then have a clue (1) how to pack it and store it (2) how to protect from human exposure and what the effects and 1st aid will be (3) how to put out a fire in this chemical (4) how to protect the local environment (waterways). But no....reading it is not important.

Brexit brings down May, Johnson stakes leadership claim By Elizabeth Piper, William James and Kylie MacLellan British Prime Minister Theresa May arrives to deliver a statement in London, Britain, May 24, 2019. REUTERS/Simon Dawson LONDON (Reuters) - Fighting back tears, Theresa May said on Friday she would quit after failing to deliver Brexit, setting up a contest that will install a new British prime minister who could pursue a cleaner break with the European Union.

  11. Lots of photos of this 'lady' around, always big feet, sometimes a bit of a moustache. Almost certainly a bloke with fake tits.
  12. For those who drink real coffee (ie expressos or what, in Oz, is called a 'short black' [Memo to all Australians: Remember not to ask for that in Usofa!]), Starbucks - for me, here in Surin & at Terminal 21 in BKK - does a good one. More importantly, Starbucks also has - at Oz prices - the best beans I have been able to find for my expresso machine here at home. 3 or 4 double shots a day. Bliss.
  13. Its the cheap Thai model, 4 doors 4 wheels usually and the wrong emblem on the bonnet
  14. Brexit brings down May, Johnson stakes leadership claim By Elizabeth Piper, William James and Kylie MacLellan British Prime Minister Theresa May arrives to deliver a statement in London, Britain, May 24, 2019. REUTERS/Simon Dawson LONDON (Reuters) - Fighting back tears, Theresa May said on Friday she would quit after failing to deliver Brexit, setting up a contest that will install a new British prime minister who could pursue a cleaner break with the European Union. May's departure deepens the Brexit crisis as a new leader, who should be in place by the end of July, is likely to want a more decisive split, raising the chances of a confrontation with the EU and potentially a snap parliamentary election. Former foreign minister Boris Johnson, the favourite to replace May, was first out of the blocks, saying Britain should be prepared to leave the EU without a deal to force the bloc to offer a "good deal". Current foreign minister Jeremy Hunt also confirmed he would run for the leadership just hours after May, her voice cracking with emotion, said she would resign as Conservative Party leader on Friday, June 7, setting up a contest to succeed her. "I will shortly leave the job that has been the honour of my life to hold," May said outside her Downing Street official residence with her husband, Philip, looking on. "The second female prime minister, but certainly not the last. "I do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love," said the usually reserved May. May, once a reluctant supporter of EU membership who won the top job in the turmoil that followed the 2016 Brexit referendum, steps down with her central pledge - to lead the United Kingdom out of the bloc and heal its divisions - unfulfilled. "It is, and will always remain, a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit," May said, adding that her successor would have to find a consensus to honour the 2016 referendum result. Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition Labour Party, said the new prime minister must hold an election to "let the people decide our country's future". GRAPHIC: Theresa May's tenure PM BORIS JOHNSON? May, who endured several crises in her failed effort to find a compromise Brexit deal that parliament could ratify, bequeaths a deeply divided country and a political elite that is deadlocked over how, when or whether to leave the EU. The latest deadline for Britain's departure is Oct. 31. Most of the leading contenders to succeed May want a tougher divorce deal. The EU has said it will not renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement it sealed with Britain in November. Spain said it now seemed almost impossible to avoid a so-called hard Brexit, or clean break from the EU, and the bloc signalled there would be no change on the agreement despite European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker learning of May's resignation "without personal joy". Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney underlined the bloc's stance that there would be no better Brexit deal. "This idea that a new prime minister will be a tougher negotiator and will put it up to the EU and get a much better deal for Britain? That's not how the EU works," Coveney told Ireland's Newstalk radio station. Politicians in her party and abroad paid tribute to her determination. French President Emmanuel Macron praised May's "courageous work" and U.S. President Donald Trump said he felt bad for her. "I like her very much, she is a good woman, she worked very hard," Trump said. Johnson, the face of the official Brexit campaign in 2016, is the favourite to succeed May, with betting markets giving him a 40% implied probability of winning the top job. He made his pitch at an economic conference in Switzerland, appealing to Brexit-supporting Conservative Party members by saying: "We will leave the EU on Oct. 31, deal or no deal." He said Britain could forge a "fantastic free trade relationship" with Europe after it quits the bloc but could also be a champion for global free trade. Others tipped are Dominic Raab, a Brexit supporter and former Brexit secretary, with a 14% implied probability on his chances. Environment Secretary Michael Gove, former House of Commons leader Andrea Leadsom and Hunt each have a 7% probability, according to betting markets. Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt and International Development Secretary Rory Stewart each have a 4% chance of the top job while Home Secretary Sajid Javid has a 3% chance. GRAPHIC: Brexit and positions on sterling https://tmsnrt.rs/2WW8QBb Conservative lawmaker Graham Brady resigned as chairman of the party's 1922 Committee of backbench MPs in preparation for a potential leadership bid, the BBC said. For many Conservative lawmakers, speed is of the essence to install a new leader to try to break the Brexit impasse. The governing party said it would move quickly to try to end the leadership contest before parliament breaks for a summer holiday, a so-called recess which usually falls in late July. "The fight for the heart and soul of the Conservative Party officially starts now," said Andrew Bridgen, a pro-Brexit lawmaker. "We need a new PM as soon as possible and who that is will decide the future of our democracy, our country and the Conservative Party." Sterling swung back and forth on May's resignation, and British government bond yields edged off near-two-year lows struck first thing on Friday.

  16. You can not compare the cost of the wine here in relation to another Contries price as all western currencies are half the value there were 10 years ago. Take Pound Stirling 10 years ago it was 79B/£ now 41B/£ so the price of the wine now costs twice as much to me but the Thai price hasn't increased much. .The wine l buy now is Mont Clare Thai wine 189B 660cl. If you buy it in larger amount the price/ litre in not in proportion to the 600no bottle.
  17. Fair enough, but a camera up the willy is the easiest way to spot urethra, strictures, prostate and bladder problems.
  18. probably photoshopped the pic, sometimes cause abnormalities. That big toe is about 6 inches long
  19. You don't mention Latte. Too milky maybe. Why not add an extra coffee shot?
  20. I want to rule out a hernia, I’m getting this MRI done through the NHS in England so not paying for it, I had a nasty bicycle accident before my pelvic problems started so the MRI will also check my pelvic structure etc.. it’s not a useless scan. If clear then I’ll check for Urethral Stricture.
  21. Personally I find those "tower" type burgers irritating ridiculous and just damn messy ! Chips look great !!
  22. This also reminds me of the 1000 Bhat we westerners have to pay to go across the border at Nong Khai because the missus wants to go shopping in Udon, its literally only one day but I still have to pay 1000B, if I have used up my two annual freebies .... don't tell me thats not revenue collecting .... not from me anyway, I don't go across anymore ...
