I love it how the armchair judges look down on this guy. Maybe he did have an exit plan but it failed? He lost his wife 2 years ago. A million things could have happened to him between his wife's death and today. 

 

So it's ok for him to drive around Thailand without even 17k in the bank ?

Assist him getting back to the UK, do you have zero empathy?

Why don't you help him if you have so much sympathy and let us know the outcome afterwards? Many people say a lot but do little to nothing. Try to be different. It is easy to type something here...

Ever had d health insurance? It goes up every year20 years I had it and when I needed it it wasn,t worth a toss.

Can you read ? I said the first thing i arranged was health insurance when I came back 15 years. I have used it. So far I paid more into it then i took too.. boo hooo...  but it could have been different. 

 

Most people take the gamble and then moan when it goes wrong and let others pay for them / don't pay. Because of the people that arent paying now it wont be a choice anymore. Soon it will be all mandatory.

Where would he go once he gets to the uk?

The streets?

He has no family, so obviously no house in the u.k.

And the housing department wouldnt be very helpful in finding him a place to stay.

If he only has a pension he wouldnt be able to live in the u.k anyway unless he gets free housing which would take forever.

what do you think is the answer for old folks in his situation  ?
