  1. For God's sake grow up. You are the worst conspiracy theorist on this thread. There is no Covid19 in Thailand, you can't catch it from toilet seats or looking at Pattaya bar girls. The UK is looking for reciprocal arrangements, that is why Thailand is not included
  2. I stopped asking 10 years ago. ................... a totally pointless exercise - and if any wife can accurately compute, record and react to the financials relating to rice farming, then she shouldn't be wasting her time in rice farming!
  3. The fact that you need to ask that question is the answer. You are insignificant, your 500k is a grain of sand but you rate yourself so highly that you think that Thailand should make it's rules to fit you. It doesn't work like that but, I agree, Vietnam looks nice.
  4. I seriously doubt that. There is a more than adequate supply - it is demand that is the issue at the moment. A lacklustre bar scene with no international tourists is not conducive to a vibrant environment that encourages patrons to visit.
  5. Was there ever a reason to ? I don't recall dengue ever being an airborne infection - or passed on by human contact.
  6. It hasn't worked before so I doubt it would work in the future. Thatcher had it about right.......................... “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”
  7. +1 I am British and will criticise Brits, or Thais, as and when I consider it appropriate. Nobody is perfect so it is easy for us armchair critics to have a pop at someone. As far as Covid-19 is concerned you can criticise any government because they have all made mistakes in these unprecedented circumstances. Thailand has done very well and, whilst I think that they have been fortunate, they have acted pretty decisively. Over the top at times and I would argue that some ongoing restrictions are excessive for Thailand's situation. On the other hand the UK were slow to act when stronger action was required; not screening UK arrivals (as was common practice in Asia) was a mistake as was the initial herd immunity strategy. Nevertheless, I think that the UK government are genuinely trying to do their best and, whilst I am not Johnson's biggest fan, I would rather see him at the helm rather than any other current political figure. Coronavirus is not a pi55ing competition - whether Thailand has done better than Malaysia, or Sweden has done better than Netherlands who may, or not, have done better than the UK - or anyone else - is irrelevant. This has been/is a global pandemic with each country doing the best it can.
  8. I can see why my Belgian friends think their neighbours are arrogant. More inaccurate assumptions in that post than a prude's judgement of a Pattaya whoremonger
  9. They are usually affected by public holidays....... Thai and UK. However, their website is very informative on opening times:- https://www.vfsglobal.co.uk/th/en/vacs/bangkok/public-holidays-and-closures https://www.vfsglobal.co.uk/th/en/vacs/bangkok Substitution for Asarnha Bucha Day 06-Jul-2020 Monday Substitution for Songkran Festival Day 27-Jul-2020 Monday H.M.

  10. You are borfering on racism already. Stop stereotyping people - your posts are normally more intelligent than that. Bl00dy Cloggie!
  11. I would tend to agree with that - except from two angles:- 1. I have family in the UK and I would like to see a cautious unlocking to help ensure their good health. There are too many f00kwits as evidenced by the lemming approach to pub openings. Thailand understood that and their paranoid approach to Songkran (well handled) and other prohibitions helped prevent the Thai f00kwits spoiling the excellent Covid-19 numbers. 2. My income is derived from the UK and I do support the government's efforts to get the economy moving again. Owning a crematorium has been something of a bonus for me. but I do feel for those who are dependent on getting their income from the harder hit areas of industry.
