Perhaps Thai Visa should shut down for a week and force us all to get a life.

I know I wrote 'Thai Visa' when it probably should have been 'Thaivisa'.

However please don't correct me. My PC can only take so much PC in one day.

Why not "Farang woman robbed by European-looking man" ... or "Farang woman robbed by Farang man"?

There are millions of "European-looking" men in Australia, the United States of America and England.

Question: Who is writing these headlines?!

Answer: Someone who needs education.

Last time i checked, England was in Europe!

Is England in Europe? I guess it is separated by the English channel from Europe

From continental Europe, but still in Europe.

Oh dear. I'm using an iPad and so have to touch the screen to move the page up and down. Unfortunately I pressed the "like this" button on your post. Bu #%er! Sorry GuyL, no offence, but I don't agree with your comment, but was going to keep my opinions to myself.

Geographically, we're lumped in with the rest of Europe because our minds like to put things into boxes and to put labels on them.

Once John Cabot started the British Empire in 1497 when he discovered Newfoundland, and Henry VIII took us out of Christendom in the 1530s, we have been part of the English speaking world. Nothing against Europe: lovely people but we are British not European.

Apologies for being off topic.

Geographically, England is part of Europe, and that's an undisputable fact. Politically, England is still part of the European Union (although, it might not be the case one of these days), etc, etc. etc. Like it or not, English people are British, yes, but also European (and not American, Asian, African, Oceanian nor Antarctican).

He is of European ancestry and that's certainly what was meant by the use of the terms "European" and/or "Farang" in the news report.

Hello GuyL

Thank you for your measured response. We will just have to agree to disagree on this one. Also we are off topic and no doubt the moderators are lurking. As I say I was going to keep my opinions to myself.

It is unlikely that there will ever be a referendum. This is because the Civil Service, and in particular the Foreign Office, is staunchly in favour of the European Union. Politicians, and governments of whatever colour, come and go. In Opposition they make various promises but it is the Foreign Office mandarins, who are there long term, who formulate policy on Europe. They know that an In/Out referendum would, more likely than not, result in a 'No'. Emotionally, the 'no' voters do not see themselves as European.

One can use geographical and political labels to say that we are European, but home is where the heart is, and, emotionally, that is not in Europe.

Anyway, I appreciate that you disagree, and it was interesting to hear your point of view.

I guess that I just need to be more careful when touching the screen on my iPad!

Geez, relax, I wasn't being serious .... you think I'd use a pic of a 'hollywood Aussie' to make a serious point ? (and it might interest you to know that I was born in Oz, though I don't wrestle crocs).

What's wrong with the headline? It is known she is Danish as she reported the crime and obviously gave her nationality, and a "European looking" guy distinguishes the SOB so we know he is not Thai / Asian / Middle Eastern. All you guy get upset when there is a report about a French / British / American or whatever other western national with a middle eastern or otherwise NON EUROPEAN name committed a crime.

I think the headline is clear and serves the purpose - be careful of EVEN European looking person asking you to give him cash help.

Crooks are crooks. They come in all sizes, shapes, and nationalities.

But wait a minute. Might be there is more than one con going on here.

"Withoon said Rosgaard and the man had been seen arriving at the shopping mall in Pa Daed area together and later left together on the same motorcycle." <$&*expletive>??? I wonder who's going to jail?

Don't be afraid, I've noticed (among other things) the smiley at the end of your comment. Actually, I was also replying in mine to the other TV member that you quoted in your own post.

But I am very disappointed to learn that you've never wrestled a croc so far, my Aussie friend! wink.png
