So other than that, everything is OK?🙂

Absolutely fine, mainly because I don't have to live there permanently anymore.

Nothing stays the same. Nostalgia is fine but anger at change is pointless.

Far too much political correctness in UK. Too many bleeding hearts who are more concerned about immigrants than their own people.

I'll stop there.

The PC police are everywhere here Facebook the media

Not from the decision makers. Beneficiaries of this deal will be long gone or happily retired with plenty of resulting funds in their pockets.

Will be regretted in the future.

The Britain i knew and loved as i grew up , i am afraid has gone , when there were few immigrants it was fine ,they on the whole mucked in and became British as did my dad ,came from Europe to help fight against Germany ,married a local girl and had us British kids.

those days i fear are long long gone ,i know its not PC and the usual posters will not agree with me ,but vast swathes of Britain are now a foreign land ,peopled by people who owe it no alegance ,neither do their offspring .

all you have to do is read the national press and when you see the pictures of the vast majority of drug dealers ,murderers and those murdered and you will see .

so the British embassy is now not great ,and neither is Britain.

Good post. There are of course many more reasons why the UK is broken but broken it undoubtedly is.

Hope this will NEVER EVER happen to our beautiful Embassy on Captain Bush Lane. I am talking about the Embassy of Portugal, that we own (the land too) as a gift from one of Thailand's late Kings. And believe me, my country is much more in need of fresh cash than the UK, Brexit or no Brexit ! I am appaled !!!

the building was less than 100 years old, hardly historic.

 

the previous embassy, before 1922, was also sold to the Siamese government.
