Re: Did the Conservatives break Britain?

Oh! dear Jacks Pratt That didn't generate the expected rounds of applause you were hoping for. The British people recognised that the Liebour parties massive fiscal spending was really not working. Broony (the loony) who was never voted in by the people tried to hide his mental overspending, for no...

Re: Cricket 2023

Not enough interest in cricket to start a new thread but, I wondered how our resident Aussies feel about the prospect of throwing their game against the Jocks to knock England out of the T20 world cup. Its obviously a win win for the Jocks but, surely the Aussies arent so pathetic in their irration...

Re: new tax for all foreigners...

Useless to you. To anyone else interested, again refer to Por 162/2566 "The Director-General of the Revenue Department had issued Revenue Department Order No. Por. 161/2566 dated 15 September 2023, causing a high burden to pay taxes in Thailand for those who have income derived from foreign sources...

Re: new tax for all foreigners...

You are putting out false and misleading information as usual. Anyone interested in the truth regarding this subject and the timing of assessable income can Google "Departmental Instruction No. Por 162/2566" that was issued by the Revenue Department on 20 Nov last year. That is all. Thanks for prov...

Re: Is the South China Sea the Balkans of the 21st Century?

In short the answer is NO , The two Balkan wars werfe nationalistic and loosely based on a peppering of religious intolerance .

Re: new tax for all foreigners...

The undeclared $10,000 is exchanged at a money changer and the baht taken home and kept in the undeclared mattress. No need for bank or ATM visits. Licenced money changers already need to see ID or passports to facilitate such a transaction and maybe, like hotels, they will need to report passport d...

Re: Is the South China Sea the Balkans of the 21st Century?

The main problem is a lack of unity between the six nations that have more legitimate claims to the waters of their territorial and economic zones. For example, throughout his term, the former Philippine president Duterte constantly blew hot and cold on working with China, depending on his domestic ...

Re: new tax for all foreigners...

Are you saying, any funds you brought into Thailand in 2023 is Taxable? I thought this tax grab is only from Jan. 1, 2024. If that is the case, I guess all expats who spent more than 180 days in Thailand last year, have already filed Thai taxes for 2023. The deadline has long since passed, yet it s...

Re: Picking quarrels and provoking troubles

Some say a nation gets the leadership they deserve: Xi, Putin, Maduro, Ramaphosa,... Trump.

Reading in the BP about a Vietnamese activist, long-time Thailand refugee, being arrested in Bangkok with a view to a "mutually agreeable" repatriation to his homeland.

It's just not cricket.

Whoever or whatever has invented the notion that local immigration offices are suddenly going to be handing out or otherwise requesting a TIN from foreigners extending their extensions, needs to be totally ignored.

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

War, however, doesn't work that way. It does, when one side has (let's say) 90% of the offensive capability, and the absolute capacity to be more selective when indiscriminately bombing predominantly civilian targets. Not at all sure if the tactical weapon that can isolate and surgically remove the...

But you still got boots in planes, helicopters, jets, and boots on submarines, destroyers, aircraft carriers.
