I'm always surprised by how many crimes in Thailand these days involve French people. When you hear about a guy beating up a ladyboy, or stealing from a shop, or getting into fights, it is very often a Frenchman.  

I remember traveling in France as a young teenager and they always seemed so cultured, so sophisticated.

It is mystifying that such a dignified people, with such a glorious history, seem to have descended into barbarism.

  

As said above, they have French nationality , just nationality

Nobody wants them in France.

French arabs looking by the names

I was in France last year... I though I got off at the wrong airport in the middle east!

And we feel angry and sad when the Thais call us farangs even after we have been here for decades.

I don't know how old you are;
I think you saw a France that no longer exists;
the one I knew 60 years ago ....


Late 80's, early 90's, mostly on the Riviera, I was a wide-eyed teenager. It was special to me.

Subsequent visits have been very disheartening, especially Paris.

Glorious history - would that be fighting all over Europe for varying reasons at different times or imposing dictatorial colonial regimes like other "first world nations" did/do?


Every country's history is complicated. The Roman Empire had many shameful aspects, but few would deny the glory of their high points. Likewise, France added something unique and wonderful to the world.

It strikes me that the people who get so caught up with modern re-interpretations of the colonial period are blind to all the good that was done. Again, terrible things happened, but wonderful things happened too. Of course, the modern Twitter mob lacks the attention span necessary to appreciate masterpieces, symphonies, and architectural wonders.

Yes but, on the other hand, in general the French have excellent spelling and grammar 😄

doesn't sound French to me.. 

" refugees " maybe. 

Perhaps third generation also. Love the complaints that farang are discriminated against, but give them chance to question other nationality or heritage and out come the pitchforks

In 2008, when the pound was already on the dais, I took plane in UK a few times for my trips to Thailand.
But the evening at Stansted or Heathrow was so depressing, the surrounding suburbs were so ugly that I abandoned this idea.


However I do not generalize to all of England.


In my view, the problem with all these discussions comes from easy generalizations.

Sometimes, however, a moment in time can encompass an entire nation.

I remember such a moment walking up Oxford Street in 1995 and being amazed to see Blur, then at the height of their "Britpop" success, playing high up on the roof of a record store. I felt that I was in exactly the right place at the right time.

Likewise, for me, there were things about France during my time there that had a completely unique and wonderful feeling. That feeling seems to have disappeared in recent decades, to be replaced by something far more ignorant and aggressive.

It is sad that they managed to screw up something so essentially good. These days, almost no one I know talks about wanting to live in Paris, whereas that was a desire you often heard expressed in the past.

Oh, they just use those suburbs as a place to store baggage handlers. You should have caught a train into the city 😄

You think 'farang' is a nationality?

These are the azzhats that have been ripping up/down Moo 5, on their sofa bikes for the past few weeks. All quiet now, glad they busted them.

Talked to a friend. His Russian girlfriend said that one of them, the one with the short bleached hair , spat at her while driving his scooter. As I understand, she reported them. I suspect she was not alone, many people have complained.

French tourists ???? LOL LOL LOL
French nationality, for convenience, would be much fairer.
This allows France to increase the number of individuals on its territory to the detriment of the French of origin.
