I love being here, love the Thai family and love what we have here as a lifestyle, but I have absolutely no 'cultural' empathy with Thailand.  I don't share or respect their religion, or their history.  I don't share their politics, or their outlook.  I would not take Thai citizenship if they offered it unconditionally for 100 Baht. 

Not only that you have to denounce your own country's citizenship.   I would never give up my country's citizenship just to be accepted in Thailand.

Nice story but always somebody who needs to moan.

Just a flippant but accurate observation, the title is factually incorrect. 

Even for ahem, 'journalism', such as Tatler, I think we can expect better.

I have a couple of friends who have Thai nationality and three more who are in the process. I got PR in 2012 but didn't bother to apply for nationality. Don't need to own land in my own name or vote etc etc.

You're SUPPOSED to, but they don't actually check.
