  1. I listen to LBC most of the time when I'm at home. When O'Brien comes on at 10 am after Nick Ferrari I usually have to turn it off after 10 minutes of listening to that creep.
  2. You are achieving nothing by getting on at me about it. Get on to those who are responsible in India or China for the pollution not me. Like you I used to fell guilty every time I put a plastic bag in the kitchen bin but what is the point. It's shipped out to China where they burn plastic waste to create energy and even more pollution. My own sister was the author of Pollution and the Environment which she wrote in the 1960s and was one of her two publications that was distributed as a text book in British schools dealing with the subject. That was over half a century ago and her efforts have had no world wide influence at all. But fish, even Salmon can now be caught in the all reaches of the River Thames. Why don't you have a crack at writing a book on the matter instead of bleating on at people on internet forums about it.
  3. The concern of even a million Western environmentalists will have no effect of the activities of billions of comparatively backward peoples around the world who take living among rubbish as part of their every day existence. It's water off a ducks back to them.
  4. You can't compare Jeremy Corbyn with Tony Blair. Even the most ardent old style labour voters fear Corbyn getting into number 10. Like many others I hate Blair for getting our boys killed for no reason in Iraq and Afghanistan but there is no question about his boosting our economy. His military ambitions and that crow of a wife of his led to his downfall.
  5. What has your non defaistic attitude ever achieved in the decades since we have been made aware of environmental pollution. Do you actually believe that our voices will prevent billions of Indians, Chinese and Africans from chucking their rubbish into the rivers and sea. The Ganges is one of the most polluted river in the world. Will our voices clear the industrial haze that now covers many Asian cities. They're chasing after the wealth that comes with industrialisation and mass manufacturing. It's plainly obvious that they could not care less about what Western tree huggers have to say about it all. Just looking at the plastic bags that get dumped in the streets of a comparatively civilised country like Thailand should answer such questions.

  7. It hit 90 when the Asian economy crashed which was a one off! It was never in the 70-90 range for over 5 years or so. It was in the lower 70s for a few years but never again went anywhere near the 80s let alone the 90s. Data saying that it was in such a range for 5 years does not exist for you to try and dig out, that's why you can't be 'arsed'.
  8. No because I believe any attempts by the UK to influence these matters is a waste of time and effort. If the prime polluters don't care what difference will our efforts make even if GW or CC is in fact man made.
  9. Check the charts on the internet while Maggie was boss and after CMD took the helm. The GBP hit 90 baht for just a couple of days which was a flash in the pan. It was hardly 'running around 90+ to the pound'. The fact remains that regardless of other circumstances the weakest the GBP has been for over the last third of a century has been under the Tory governments of Thatcher, CMD and May. It hardly bears out the supposition that the economy thrives under a Tory govt. In spite of what the media try and kid us into believing economies are built around the working man and if he is not doing well his country's economy won't either. A currency needs to circulate to remain strong. When the ordinary citizen is working and spending all is well. When he loses his work it all goes down the pan. The importation of cheap labour also has an effect on the economy as when a manual worker loses his job to an Eastern European those earnings are sent off out of circulation to Poland and Romania etc. And then the rest of us have to fork out to keep our man on the dole and quite often his family as well. So the GBP loses it's former value on the world's market but businessmen benefit from the pool of cheap labour. Amazon and Starbucks do not fund any resulting shortages of cash. You and me do.
  10. The strongest the GBP has been against the Baht in the last 35 years has been under the Labour Governments of Blair and Brown. The weakest it's been has been under the Tory governments of Thatcher, CMD and May. You ex pats should think on that and contrary to popular belief and the vilification that the press heaps on the sharing of wealth through taxation hope for another Labour government. When the working people have more available cash the general economy improves because more cash gets spent. When a Tory govt strives to improve only the lot of the already rich the economy goes downhill. According to Macmillan in the 1960s the British people had never had it so good. That was years before the EU had ever been heard of.
  11. I've never really been cheated by any of Pattaya's transport providers apart from a couple of late night trips on a M/C taxi from Walking Street to my lodgings in Central Pattaya which should be around 60 B. But being charged 80 or 100 for said trip at 4 am is not going to break anyone's heart. Some of the M/C taxi boys may be a bit sullen and appear to practically hate us but that's understandable when they see comparably rich foreigners spending in a night what may take them a week or more to earn and then sh@gging their womenfolk to boot. If I were them I would not be too enthusiastic about such a situation in my country either! The baht bus system in Pattaya must be one of the most efficient and cheapest forms of transport on the planet. Can be a bit uncomfortable but they serve their purpose admirably and the 10 B fare has not gone up for over 20 years I rarely take a taxi in Pattaya unless I've got a lot of shopping or going to or from the airport and always agree on a price before I get in the vehicle. I have without exception found the drivers who work for the firm I use to be pleasant and courteous. And that 1100 B fare plus a tip of your choice has not gone up in 20 years either.
  12. This climate change malarkey is being used as a money making operation by big companies and politicians associated with them. The last British Prime Minister (Call Me Dave) Cameron was all in favour of alternative energy and had jumped determinedly on the global warming band wagon. We eventually discovered why although he kept it quiet right up until the press got wind of the story. Strangely after that happened he kept it even quieter. His father is a very wealthy landowner and owns acres and acres of open land on the East Coast of Britain mainly in Lincolnshire. It often gets very windy by the North Sea which was to prove very convenient for CMD's dad and his chums. Old man Cameron was being paid millions by a wind farm organisation to set up windmills on his land and that's why CMD, his boy was so enthusiastic about promoting alternative energy and 'saving the planet'. Once the press including those 'right wing' Tories at the Daily Mail exposed this nice little earner CMD and his dad had going we never heard another peep from CMD on the clean air subject. Whatever way you want to look at it that was corruption at the highest level in our political system but it soon got brushed under the carpet. Another prominent politician who expressed concern about the same subject was exposed as having family interests in the solar panel industry. Neither was that common knowledge till a journalist found out about it. That was also a prime example of political corruption. Whatever steps we take in the UK will have not effect whatsoever on sea levels, ice caps and rainforests etc while the US, China and India are pumping noxious fumes and gases into the atmosphere as if their very lives depend on it. There are genuine well meaning eco warriors but a lot of these businessmen and politicians simply regard the issue as a licence to print money. Like the last British Prime Minister did. Accordingly many of us take this global warming business with more than just a spoonful of salt.
  13. My views are based on past observations and correct. Yours are based on expectations, prophesies and anticipations so are incorrect. These climate change 'experts' are employed by organisations who often have a financial interest in the global warming and climate change agenda.
  14. "You'll be long gone by then and therefore probably don't care." There's no need to be rude. Let's keep it civilised shall we. I prefer to base things upon what I can see for myself and draw my own conclusions rather than what some professor is paid to tell me. You have your view and I have mine. Try addressing people as you would face to face rather than being insulting from behind the screen of a computer.
