Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

Remember this incident? Thailand's military leader has lashed out at journalists saying he would " probably just execute " those who did "not report the truth", in the latest outburst aimed at Thailand's media. " We'll probably just execute them ," Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Wednesday, when asked by ...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

Perhaps the UK government should consider that we save them money as while here we pay for our own doctors visits for minor ailments and generally do not cost them anything unless or until we return. I agree in principle. However their argument would be that you are taking and spending money earned...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

You'll find all the info within www.gov.uk many who retire to warmer climes recognise that when they pass 80, the cost of healthcare may well propel them back to the NHS Returning to the UK to 'resettle' gives back all the benefits of being a resident like access to the NHS. You have to state that y...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

There are times when you will receive a form that must be filled in confirming you are alive and proof of residence (i.e. utility bills etc). When I've received these, I have no option than to use immigration and have the copy certified. Although I have a bank account and 'address', I would have no ...

Never heard of Sririta Jenson but how appropriate with her surname. Jenson Motors, Jenson Button.
I believe she is the late Kings Granddaughter.
She's half Danish/Thai born in Indonesia and a well known actress/model.

No relation to the royals as far as I can tell.

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

A member of this forum (sadly now deceased) moved here without telling the authorities in the UK (DWP for example). It was later discovered that he lived in Thailand and was forced to pay back the overpayments. I think when he died his pension was cut by 50 quid a month. In my case, I wanted to move...

Re: Birds of Thailand

I've been in HH for 16 years and we certainly get a lot less birds than we used to. A strange one, but we used to get dozens of sparrows which used to feed off a seed tray. They have vanished completely. My all time favourites are a couple of Hoopoes that come to forage daily. They are beautiful bir...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

Well my state pension has been frozen for the last 7 years. It would be nice (very) if they compensated all those with frozen pensions and bring them up to date. Unfortunately, as expats, we are easy prey!
