Re: Medieval investigation in Thailand

This news came out a week or so ago and once again it highlights the ineptitude of the authorities here. Coroner's reports, DNA results, police investigations all have no credibility.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

TK's has apparently drained away so the pool match is on.

I had occasion to go to Cha-am today and was surprised to find the road is still badly flooded in parts, some covering all 3 lanes!

Re: Best "free" film/TV streaming sites?

I've been using HDPrime since it started. A little cheaper than expat and has several hundred channels with 'catch-up' on the main ones, movies online (and they're bang up to date) plus loads of series (box sets). If the series you're watching is current, the latest episode is added within a couple ...

Well that storm certainly woke me up. Haven't seen one as spectacular for ages. Quite fun really and unlike some unfortunates, our power stayed on....... so far!

Re: New drivers must take longer theory training

Current driving licence (expiry date 24/12/17) That highlights one sensible change. It used to be the case that you couldn't renew until your 'current' licence had actually expired and you had 1 year to renew without having to start from scratch. It is sometimes worth while to allow your licence to...

Re: Thailand to England move

I understand that VS is looking for someone to 'take over' the rent. I gather rent is paid to a landlord so it wouldn't be in their interest to leave furniture for the profit/benefit of the landlord.

Re: Charging for plastic bags in Thailand?

There are 'bottle bins' and separated bins dotted around. I'm told that the Thais do use them properly. Maybe not enough of them though.

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

The named beaches are only during the initial 'campaign'. From February 1st ALL beaches come under the law. Or so it was stated!

Recycling truck? Didn't know of it's existence. Tell me more. I have old fans, TV's and computers etc and have always wondered where to get rid.

Re: Charging for plastic bags in Thailand?

The present PM recently said they could not implement laws restricting the use of plastic bags as the people would not like it.
What a stupid comment by the PM. There's a very long list of laws that 'the people don't like'. Should they be repealed?

Re: Japan To Help Improve Road Safety Across The Kingdom

Nobody can help the carnage here until the Thais help themselves.
A large dose of common sense and a police force that works!

Re: British Community’s Annual Ploenchit Fair

It has never been the same since they stopped holding it in the grounds of the British Embassy, where the name comes from. A day out there would just about guarantee that you would run in to someone that you had not seen since the last one. :( Since they sold massive lumps to Central, they probably...

Re: Tax Residency

I had a similar request from my pension trustees a year or more ago, same reason given. I completely ignored it and I've never heard anything since.
