Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

The Chinese government is touting bile extracted from caged bears as a treatment for coronavirus.

Re: Boris tests positive for Corona

Disgraceful that the Guardian should choose to use Boris Johnsons current worrying situation as a political attack and points scoring opportunity whilst trying to wish him well ... low very low https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/apr/06/boris-johnson-hospital-government-adrift-coronaviru...

Re: Covit-19 local fatality?

The original.post was over a month ago. Procedures then and now will no doubt have changed. OK, sorry I misunderstood. They were probably unable to test over a month ago but from your comment (the doctors comment?) "There are now a number of confirmed cases at NBLP hospital", they are able to do on...

Re: Labour's new leader

Some people are ignorant Jon, they spout off without knowing how things work, Momentum are the biggest single reason UK Labour are unelectable. With UKIP it was the NEC that was calling the shots, hence why Nigel left the party. Agreed on Momentum. With regard to funding, "Momentum has said that 95...

^ Read some of her earlier opinion pieces. How she manages to keep the abject finger-pointing and screaming so well disguised is a lesson to us all. Right now, she's my Thai media superhero.

Re: Border and bar closings

My observation from a trip to the rice mill mid-morning and the return round-trip late afternoon, it looked a lot quieter outbound towards Samphrao, inbound from NK and on the ring road (east). Typical Chakri Day I guess.
