The last thing needed would be an additional bunch of lunatic populists.

Nothing wrong with populists, in fact they are quite popular around here. Got to be hint in that name somewhere? That Elitists and now Remainers use the term to sneer down at the masses is a pity.

 

Are you worried that some new populist parties could take votes away from your own personal favourite party, simply because they have more popular policies than yours? Even if they don't actually win an election they can still sway the balance of power from your chosen winner. Aint that democracy a bitch.

1000 squid at 51,36 TT = 51.360
15.feb.2019
1000 squid at 39,66 TT = 39.667
= - 11.693
= - 22,77 %
Let us count this.
A simple rough estimate with the value loss constant over the time axis.
Let say your monthly income/Pension is 1000 squid
jul 2016 - feb2019 = 32 month
32 * 11.693 = 374.176 Baht loss 

For that Money you could buy 7 new Honda Clicks.
or (1 Singha beer small 35Baht) = 10690 bottles beer you have less.
or (Barfine 500 Baht) = 748 Barfines  you have less
555
Have a nice day.

Got all my money over when it was 75 to £ from then on I have no control over what happens to the exchange.

I based my retirement on 35 to £ when I was planing 15 years ago.

An even simpler calculation. 

 

£1000 per month in Feb 2016 equated to Bht51,360.

£1000 per month in Feb 2019 equates to Bht39,660

 

A drop in monthly income of Bht11,700 

 

More than enough to pay the monthly instalments on a top rated health insurance plan. 

 

 

Or perhaps a loss in income that prevents an individual from affording health insurance.

All the more reason to plan a retirement and take into consideration exchange rate history.

For those going to retire in any country and not do their sums at least have a plan 'B'.

The intellectual laziness of Hard Brexiteers, particularly the Conspiracy Theory crowd, should never be underestimated. Always shallow blah to fit their nonsense theories and the slightest research be damned.

When have you ever done more than slag off the opposition?

Perhaps she should be trying to placate the over 17,400,000 people who Democratically voted to leave this so called union.

She should certainly placate them and explain why they were lied to. She is a Remainer after all.

My theory is that you are all conspiring against me. So you would accuse me of being lazy and I should think some more, until I don't think that?

Not always possible, depending on one's personal circumstances. Exchange rate volatility can be relentless in excess of anything one may anticipate.
