  1. The only reason the authorities (and politicians) are doing nothing is the imminence of the elections. Stop the farmers burning and they loose their vote. But hey, don't worry about people who have breathing issues which is compounded by the density of the smoke, or how cancerous smoke is to people and the other animals in the area. Absolutely self interest and disgraceful.
  2. The biggest problem for people, especially the Senior Citizens is CHANGE. They are happy and secure in what they know and have adapted to, however, throw in a few changes and many become unsettled and want to get away from the change. I have lived in Thailand for 15 years and yes sometimes I become restless, but that is me, not Thailand or the Thai people, who by and large are very hospitable and friendly, providing you are to them! Certainly a lot more sociable then UK from where I originated. Back to the Immigration issue, what has happened is not the result of actions by Thai Immigration, but by the various Embassies who have refused to issue letters confirming income. That has caused Immigration to seek a new route, either lump sum deposit or monthly income, at the level appropriate to your marital status. Personally I don't find it a problem, but if you find you can't meet the requirements, then you are right to leave instead of getting in to trouble with the Thai Authorities. Would suggest that you go back to USA and spend sometime there to assess if it is more suitable than Thailand. UK means to me high prices (a beer is 250baht plus), cold wet climat, unhappy and largely unsociable people, boring food, Council Tax, Nanny State et al. At the age of 74 I am more than happy to stay in (Wild West) Thailand and enjoy all that it has to offer. But good luck to you....you might want to look at yourself rather than blaming other issues and remember the grass is not always greener on the other side!
  3. There is also one on Samui and have to admit their beer is rather nice, but I think the problem is selling it outside their own premises, but don't quote me on that.
  4. This proves only that the politicians in the majority are remainers, not the British Populace. MPs are defying their constituents and voting against Brexit. It is time to hold an election and see how many of these turn-coats would survive!
  5. You decided to grow the trees, we did not choose to inhale the health damaging smoke that is a result of your burning. For people with half a brain, there are alternatives to burning your rubbish. Wake up and stop being so selfish.
