Re: school fees

The school was shut for 3 months and when i went passed the gates were locked . they still get the government money so no real excuse for charging for a full year . If you were a regular at a bar and it shut for 3 months when it reopened you would not expect to pay for the drinks you never had even...

Re: Holidays

Yep another long weekend but no jobs so many will not be able to afford a holiday. What jobs are you referring to KP, the tourist industry, the sex industry (does not exist in Thailand).

Re: school fees

I understand your sentiments Dragonz, but if the school kept on all the teachers, cleaners etc during the lockdown so that the children have a seamless return to normal schooling then they are probably entitled to charge as normal (vast percentage of school running costs are staff wages) If they di...

Re: Fresh shelling peas.

We grow them on our land for home use only. But they are currently out of season just now. Best bet is the frozen ones available in the larger outlets previously mentioned if only the pea's you are looking for.

Re: Antifa Now Terrorists

Dartmouth College historian Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, credits the ARA as the precursor of modern antifa groups in the United States. In the late 1980s and 1990s, ARA activists toured with popular punk rock and skinhead bands in order to prevent Klansmen, neo-Nazis and o...

Re: Antifa Now Terrorists

The ANTIFA group of idiots are not smart enough to organize these riots themselves. With them being designated as terrorists, the government can go after those who are funding and organizing them. Perhaps some of the punks will no longer have the money to travel around the country causing trouble. ...

I wonder who was the last British PM to own slaves. I don't think Mr. Johnson owns any. Perhaps Mrs Thatcher kept a few Argies as slaves. :^o

Re: The End of the NRA?

KP, please tell us the last time you visited the USA and did the research that allows you to make sweeping statements on the normal life of towns and cities in the USA, or maybe you just read the Guardian. Its like saying Tower Hamlets in London is typical of all of the UK.

Re: Dollar is now completely worthless!

Yes USD still rules in Cambodia (Phnom Penh), or it did when I was last there in February 2020, for a short trip. Even ATM's dispense nice clean USD notes, at least down along the...
