Is recording someone without their consent legal in the UK?

I think the preponderance of public CCTV in the UK answers that question. 

Recording someone in a change room or toilet might be different, but everyday activity, including anti-social behaviour? Its perfectly legal.

 

CCTV's record people in public and common areas where they have no expectation of privacy.  Covertly recording your wife during private encounters in your home is a very different animal.

 

I'm not claiming to know the answer.  Just that it's not as simple as we'd like to think, and doing it wrong can cause more problems than we started with.  That's why my first advice is to get an attorney.  Or the OP may make things worse for himself.

 

Edit:  Not being from the UK, I do know that you need permission of all parties to record a conversation in some US states, while other states just require permission from one of the participants.  So you really need to know the rules before you go down that path, or you may end up in jail- with a recording that can only be used against you in court, and not in your favor during the divorce.

I had 20 years exp in thailand and over the years knew 100's of flangs in relationships.  I couldnt use all the fingers of one hand to recall any successful relationships. The tripping point was invariably about money - your money

I frequently show my gf my brokerage account and tell her when I die, if we're still together,  she'll be taken care of for the rest of her life. This has allowed me to do pretty much what ever I want to do while having all the benefits of a loving, giving and peaceful live-in gf.

 

My advice to the OP, protect yourself, see a lawyer and get the F- outta Dodge as soon as you can.

a comparative IQ study:the figures I remember are :average IQ:        Bangkok 96, South 94, Isan 89

HA !   i got myself one of the smartest ones then.   She's from Isan and hers is 93 !   

 

Still can't figure out how such high IQ farangs are getting duped by these dumb girls.  ( yes, I have heard

its because they are thinking with their small brain).  

 

How about the theory that so many western men are lonely as hell with low self-esteem that

when a young Thai girl smiles at them the farangs supposedly high IQ (which should enable him to see through the reason) is bypassed .   He then becomes a robot walking 5 feet behind said woman and smiles when her hand reaches out .

Oh the assumption is the high IQ??? Show me the evidence please.

The numbers I have seen warming bar stools, sprouting dribble, and falling over, indicates in many circumstances the IQ is not that high, or has diminished if it was ever any higher.

I guess many have never heard of Emotional Intelligence either

You obviously you haven't met many expat farangs ;The farangs in Los are as dumb as, if not dumber than than the Thai chicks they hook up with:the sick water buffalo, house in her name, which she sells when honey bunny is away to do a runner. Etc:As I said in a previous post :Farang land is not sending Thailand its finest, although maybe it's horniest

If its in the Public domain then its legal in the UK.

You obviously have not interpreted my post as it was meant to be.  I try to put a little sarcasm or tongue in cheek into my posts instead of just coming out and saying that Farangs that get duped are stupid horny jerks.    There are many guys on this forum that are bright,  but have still succumbed to the "charms" of the opposite sex .  Some of us "old farts" as we are called admit to a failure or two , no matter what our IQ.

And amongst us there are many that later found success.

The brain is a muscle.It is amazing to see how little exercised that muscle might be used in Thailand.

 

I concede the point that other muscles might be employed vigorously..on occasion.

Almost all of us and I doubt there's anyone on this forum that can better my IQ.

And her that took me was a Brit schoolmarm that was as daft as a post.

 

I did later find that success and the secret is very, very simple ........... 90% home loan.

If she can't make the repayments, she can't afford to dump you (or refuse to bang you).

The only possibly positive thing about getting old is that I don't wake up crowing and then spend too much time wandering around sois looking for a hump.   Free to relax a bit and watch the young bulls strut their stuff  ( with maybe a hint of jealousy)

She's definitely NOT a keeper!

Any chance of getting her back to Thailand on a "holiday"...perhaps you could just 86' her there...assuming she wouldn't have any means of getting back to the UK to kill you!

You got married in Thailand,right. This might be the loop-hole you need to get her talons out of your financial backside in case of divorce.

Good Luck - save yourself and throw her under the bus -NOW!!

19 pages, 16 of which are expats squabbling as usual. 13 of which are Americans shouting 'get a lawyer!'

 

What I would recommend is that the OP reports to the Home Office that he's been duped into a fake marriage for visa purposes and she is making threats to ensure she gets ILR. He will get open ears in this as its a common enough scenario and the Home Office is well aware of it. They have even been raiding wedding ceremonies of late. There is a helpline number kicking about although I dont know it.

 

Essentially this IS what is happening so there's no need for any subterfuge and it circumvents any police/legal/courts nonsense. Make sure you get to the Home Office before she gets to the Police and then she hangs herself by making a false report as you told them she has said she would.

 

Job done.
