Re: Brexit domino effect - EU28 Kantar poll

There is absolutely nothing within the system of UK Parliamentary democracy that requires Members of Parliament to vote for the UK to commit economic suicide just to pander to a squalid bunch of stunningly ignorant and economically illiterate bigots. Extract from "The role of the Member" The first d...

Facebook bans UK far right hate groups & leaders

It appears that Facebook is finally beginning to grow a backbone and get serious about cleaning up its act by clearing out those who use it as a propaganda platform for their sick, evil and twisted agendas. Facebook is permanently banning some of the lowest forms of evolutionary life to be found in ...

Re: Deposit insurance in Thailand

The amount covered by Deposit Protection was originally scheduled to fall to 1 Million Baht in 2012 (I first commented about it on UM back in July 2008), that fall was extended some time back to now occur on 11 August 2020. The current amount of 10 Million Baht (as per “parrot” screenshot) now lasts...

Re: Will Trump make the Grade.

So just what has this got to do with Udon Thani. You must live a sad and lonely life if you keep posting about POTUS. After 3,189 posts on this topic – for the 3.190th we get the above stunning insight from someone who had already made 46 posts on this very same topic. If someone leads a sad and lo...

Re: Revoke Article 50 petition

I signed the petition to revoke Article 50 (I did have to wait about an hour before receiving the e-mail which I had to confirm to complete the process). It is noteworthy that at the same time that a million or so were on the anti-Brexit march in London, an absolutely enormous crowd (estimates say t...

Trump seems very rattled these days. He needs to chill out a bit more.

Perhaps he should take up bowling or something.
He does have an interest in oenology.

No one has done more to cultivate, spread and promote white whines in the US and around the world.

Re: Is the Thai Baht manupilated

GBP big loser from Brexit (while EUR is big winner)

With two and a half years now having passed since the UK voted for racism and economic suicide, the impact of the prospect of Brexit on the GBP is clear and unambiguous: Brexit has screwed the GBP while boosting the EUR During the last two and a half years the economic prospects of the UK under Brex...

Re: USD prognosis post new tax cuts - poor

In order to help demonstrate why the prognosis for the USD is poor it is quite informative to look back at the last time an economically illiterate tax package was passed. As there is currently considerable concern about changes relating to visa income and deposit, I thought a chart showing how the ...

Re: U.S. Embassy to stop providing income letters Jan 01, 2019

Someone recently posted on this thread holding out for a better exchange rate (dollar/baht). That could very well happen......or not: It’s not exactly rocket science, the medium to long term fall of the USD became written in tablets of stone as soon as the “winning” tax cuts package was passed (thu...

Etihad 15th birthday ticket sale

So, at the beginning of November when I got an e-mail from Etihad about “Amazing offers for you to celebrate our 15th Year” with no ...
