David Cameron had it agreed that EU immigrants could only stay here for a very limited time if they couldn't support themselves. 

Britain already had this option under EU law anyway but UK governments CHOSE not to apply it (presumably because of the costs involved).

I suppose. It would cost a fortune just to locate the ones they really need to find.

Why can't people access doctors? Well a lot of them have gone back to the continent because they have progressively seen that there is something sick in the English Psyche, and feel their contribution is not valued.

Actually the opposite is true. At my local surgery, the doctors are almost entirely non British, the majority being locums or on short term contracts. The problem was created when the government severely curtailed GP earnings. Many doctors, particularly practice partners, took early retirement and young, newly qualified doctors no longer see it as a viable career path. The recruitment of GPs from within the UK has fallen to virtually zero.

Or, you could argue that the creaking infrastructure is the result of decades of under investment which has little to do with migrants. This is obviously your argument but not mine. The relatively rapid arrival of so many people cannot be properly planned for, coped with or sustained. It takes a lot longer to build a hospital than ride a ferry.

 

After all, in particular EU migrants, they work and pay tax for the most part, no? Some do, some don't. Many pay very little.

 

As for your last comment, not unusual for the TV mob to find themselves hot and bothered when it comes to being compared to ‘immigrants’. Hot and bothered? No. Just pointing out that the vast majority of expats in Thailand are essentially just visitors with no particular rights, to remain or otherwise. You can mess about with words as much as you want but this extension of stay is still allowed on the non-immigrant basis of the original visa.

 

You can still come here, utilise public infrastructure - roads, rail, power which is either subsided or under written by the Thai tax payer and visit doctors who were trained at a massive subsidy by the Thai government which is why their fees are so comparatively low. Another complete non-argument. If access to transport, energy, medical facilities and other services were to be denied to visitors then there would be no foreign business investment and no tourist industry.

 

So save your disingenuous and wilful ignorance line for your dramatic society. 

Okay, gotchya

 

Immigrants back home who work and pay taxes are a drain on the system but us ‘expats’ here in Thailand and do neither aren’t a drain at all.

 

Totally logical. I guess that’s why the government is enforcing the 800k in the bank more strictly for the old codgers and looking for ways to make them get health insurance.

Trolling I can handle. I just give back as good as I get, as you've probably noticed. Running to the mods? Not my style, beneath me, although it's happened to me on this forum, more timed than I could count, more regularly than any forum than I've been a member of, but that's TV for you. Why? Is that what you do?

Nay, not I sir. I'd come back to you again. Could have been your tag team partner I suppose, but are you sure it wasn't you? Sounds like you would.

Someone, I can't remember who, posted some fact without a link. On the strength of that, the mods deleted it. He then posted it again, with a totally irrelevant link. I pointed out that the mods were likely to delete it again.

 

I did tell you that I have never reported a post to the mods. Are you calling me a <deleted> lair?

Show me where I have listened to this man.:coffee1:

If you can't then apologise.

Your  reply to me

Again you are wrong in every way. You seem to be a snowflake apologist. I still remember you defending a certain religion and throwing around certain names. If someone disagrees with you then the racist, xenophobic card comes out. I am a British citizen and could still vote in the referendum. A patriot.

 

You should stop reading the Guardian and Independent newspapers. Unemployment is lower than ever. Inflation is one of the best in Europe. Continue with your tinfoil hat theories. I find people who are anti British, seem to hate the country and want to see the country fail, the problem. I believe you are one of these.

is ample evidence of your beliefs, which are very similar to those held, or at least espoused, by the violent fraudster Yaxley-Lennon.

 

There is no need for myself nor anyone else to provide evidence of your xenophobia and racism; you have provided ample evidence of it yourself.

 

You call yourself a patriotic British citizen who has served his country; yet want to abolish all the rights and freedoms my father and his generation fought 6 years of bloody war to defend.

Trying to discredit that I have a voice or opinion because I don't live in the UK at the moment, is cheap.

Not what I said, as anyone who can read knows. Still, lying spin is par for the course for you and your ilk. Another lesson you've picked up from Stevie boy.

Please do not reply as you will not get another response from me.

Mean it this time?

Don't bother replying I now know why I use to ignore your replies.
