Re: Gloom and doom or sum num na

Correct, however I love living in Thailand despite all the perceived 'downs'. The pluses IMO, Food, Climate, Local people, vibrant multi national expat community. To cap it as a Brit. I am happy to live here as a second class citizen, rather than UK , where I am probably 4 th class. 55555.

You can never be 100% sure if you eat in restaurants as to ingredients, oils used etc. Issan food is largely vegetarian in my mind, as opposed to where I come from, but Issan food is one of the reasons that ...

Re: The all-new "Getting BREXIT Done" thread.

I believe that letting Huawei into UK market a very dangerous thing, and I am not even sure that the whole 5G project should go ahead. As for Boris negotiating with the EU, he has to be aware that the EU STILL cannot accept UK leaving and are out to derail any negotiations and seek to punish UK in o...
