Thailand certainly has a magical effect on some people.

He is doubly screwed. Maybe he can get off in the uK on the basis of being stupid and a mental deficient, as the UK justice system is accomodating to such people. However, if he is convicted of a "serious" offense, he can kiss a visa fpr Thailand buh bye. He obviously won't have have the minimum bank balance to get the retirement visa either. Not much into planning this Mr. Metcalfe.

The sad part about all this is the 2 year old in Thailand;

- A wackadoodle grampa for a father and,

- A childhood that will be disadvantaged because there is no father or income from the father.

Yes Mr. Metcalfe, you really did a good job. Congrats for winning the Idiot of the Day citation.

At least he had a shot at it. Some people jump off buildings. Of course it was a stupid thing to do but I can sympathize with him. It would be a sad thing to be backed into a corner with no way out.

Until one finds themselves in a position of no way back, as in this guy, they will never comprehend. I sympathise with him.

PS. I have not reached his limit yet.

Sad story indeed.

Came here in 2006, in hospital for 4 months, we are in 2009 and the baby is already 2 years old.

And now this mess back in UK.

Not the smartest or most lucky man unfortunately.

:D Makes a change from some rogues coming from UK to rob the expats in Thailand, then putting the money in their Thai bank. :)

The truly amazing thing about this case is that there was an almost identical story with a guy from Wrexham earlier this year. I couldn't get story on Google but the details were identical.
