You are so very right Sir. (if I may brown nose you also a bit please😂...but my nose is blocked so ok).....

 

Definately they don't care of us here...but they do care on how our diplomats behave in Thailand (as they even issued a public warning. So if our foreign service lads start to piss of the local governance,  by logic, it won't be good for us as some could take it out on the nationals of the nations whose diplomats are considered interfering in internal affairs.  Lex Talionis ? .... Tit for tat ?  these words should ring a bell ?  One can never be to careful on the collateral dammage in these situations, if I may.

 

Of course all this I M H O , naturally.

I wouldn't worry about it. They want our Pounds, Dollars and Euros and will be remarkably pragmatic when it comes to money.

 

I have a stinker of a cold myself. There is definitely something doing the rounds...

I for one, appreciated that the representatives from embassies witnessed this. I hope that mine was one of them. Thailand leaders can say what they want, but that’s why countries with long, historic relationships and even treaties with Thailand, have the obligation to observe these type of incidents. If they didn’t, they would be negligent in my opinion.

Well let's hope the lord and mainly the new immigration policy maker-chief meditate on your words of wisdom and naturally loosen up a bit the visa extension rules, that currently are just pushing the pound, dollar and euro generators of 50+ age, to consider relocating. Wish you a prompt recovery.

I must admit, I was surprised that the police let them sit in on the interview. 

 

The Don guy is actually right. But the ones that messed up here was the police, who should have told them to wait outside.

 

A pretty smart move by inviting them.

No matter on which side one is, or which colour your shirt is....a farang diplomat should mind his business and fully refrain from internal political meddling in any country. And this includes Thailand.
 
Far to many nations, obvious ones as the USA, Israel, France, Russia etc. etc. have been making trouble all over the world for centuries.  So boys, mind your own business, clean up your own messy countries and leave Thai internal politics alone.
 
And this is also valid for the farangs/foreigners in Thailand.
Gentlemen, keep yer mouths shut, do not meddle in internal political.  Leave your arrogance, condescendance or xenophobia back at home weather it's against the Thai politics or other foreigners,  in Thailand.
Quite correct ... I'm a Brexiteer and would " kick up big time " if someone from over 7500 miles away stuck there nose into what primarily us BRITISH VOTERS BUSINESS!!!!!

There is such an abuse of the judicial system here, that is has long been normal for the rulers of this country to get away with whatever they want. The only people who can change this are the Thais, and sadly the majority support corruption or don't understand they are being led a merry dance or know, but can't be bothered to do anything productive about it. Then there are those who want to get involved, but know the real dangers of doing so. 

There will be a breaking point for many at some point in the future, but whether that is this year, 5 years from now or another half century remains to be seen.

Not a chance. The diplomats are just showing there support for the incoming government. Very common for a government to congratulate and support incoming members of a new government. 

Correct. Just exactly what is going on in Venezuela!!

So who will they find to spearhead this lecture on protocols and practices in a democracy, considering the EC mess?

 

It has nothing to do with democracy. China, Russia, Cuba, KSA, UAE, etc etc aren't democracies. But diplomats and quasi quango diplomats wouldn't dare act like this there. 

 

Why should they be so arrogant and rude here?

What high, exhaulted position you must hold to tell others across the glob what they should do and not do. On one hand you direct others to "keep yer mouth shut", while yours seems quite loud and meddling in the same post. I doubt if anyone in power will hear your fruitless squeeks.

And what makes you think diplomats from another country can just go and do what they want, interfere with police etc in another country?

 

Can't wait till they try that in China, Russia, or Iran.

There was no interference with police business as you well know.

 

Of course, observers would not be allowed in China, Russia or Iran. What's your point?

 

The real reason for Don's hissy fit, as you, I and the whole world knows, is that the elites are terrified of Thanthorn's challenge to their dirty old ways.
