Re: Consolidated Jokes

The other day a friend asked me if I spoke to my wife when making love, but I explained that I usually had the phone switched off.

Re: schools obsessed with uniforms

'Uniforms stifle identity, individuality and creativity -- mass producing cookie-cutter dullards who can't think for themselves. Leave the uniforms to bus drivers, policemen, athletic teams and soldiers where they actually serve a purpose. ' So, Giggle, you are saying that bus drivers , policemen, a...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

I admit that I know nothing about electrical wiring. However, if you have a three pin plug with a three core wire doesn't the three hole socket in the wall actually have to have a wire leading to earth for the thing to be safe? :? If the main socket isn't correctly earthed then a three wire extensio...

Re: Brexit domino effect - EU28 Kantar poll

Tamada's quote, " The Brexit vote was always about Leave or Remain and ONLY about that choice. The Tories and the rest of the Remain camp were so cock-sure of a resounding preference for the status quo, they hadn't considered any other result. The fact that they were blindsided by the desires of th...

Re: Brexit domino effect - EU28 Kantar poll

I'm always sceptical about these so called 'polls' as they never specify where/when/how/what population sector/what age group etc were polled. The local newspaper in Nottingham polled every house on one street and got a 96% remain vote. On the same day they polled every house on another street in a ...

Re: British PM to face No confidence vote tonight

Hi Tinpeeba, I find the first of your posters historically confusing with the morphing of the Nazi party into UKIP into Brexiteers. Some mistake here surely? :oops: The Nazi party under Hitler wanted a complete European hegemony under German rule, whereas UKIP specifically wanted the opposite with U...

Re: Will the EU succeed or fail?

You must understand that this is not immigration, but freedom of movement between all EU countries for work purposes. :D All EU citizens have equal rights to this freedom :D So, the idealogues of greater Europe see it as perfectly fair that 7 British nationals have moved to Rumania and 270,000 Ruman...

Re: Revoke Article 50 petition

In 1940, Britain in the guise of the BEF (British Expeditionary Force) was kicked out of Europe by Nazi Germany and France, led by Petain became an ally of Nazi Germany which went on to conquer the rest of Europe. When Britain was kicked out it had no backup plan!! So now, Germany under Merkel with ...

Re: British PM to face No confidence vote tonight

Unfortunately, over the last thirty years or so, we Brits have allowed ourselves to become dominated by a self appointed politically astute combination of politicians and news media. Their agenda has been that they know best, and we the people of Britain should learn to do as they say, and not as th...

Re: British Marriage Certificate Problem?

Thanks for your input.
It would seem that I have been lucky over the years,and that Captain Erkchri was correct in his decision. I'll now get my own marriage certificate appropriately validated in case it is needed in future. :D

British Marriage Certificate Problem?

My experiences with Udon Immigration Office have previously been very positive. We have a British friend and his Thai wife staying with us for a holiday over the winter. In UK he requested a four month visa, but was given a 90 day visa for being married to a Thai. He was told that he could get a 30 ...

Re: Leather dressing, oil or grease.

For deep penetration the best is probably 'Connolly Hide Dressing' used in the renovation of leather car seats etc. I don't know anywhere in Thailand that sells it. Available on UK Ebay - perhaps some kind soul might offer to bring you a jar out? :D

Re: Low Budget Village Build For In-Laws

From the plan that looks to be about 6m x 9m (which works out about Bht 3,500 per sq metre). I would love firm details from anyone who has built such a place looking like the picture. :D :D And might be willing to come and build one for me. :D

I have just returned home from one of my thousand plus visits to Tesco. At the checkout my bill came to Bt 770.25 and I tendered a 1,000 baht note. The change due was Bt 229.75 but I was actually given Bt 230 :D :D :D This has NEVER happened to me before. There is usually scrabbling around to find t...
