Third World West
« on: January 30, 2018, 02:01:11 PM »
Western countries lag so far behind Thailand.  In the UK, for instance, garbage bins are only emptied fortnightly and not daily.  Also, public transport is less diverse than Thailand.  I was amused by this article: - https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/jan/29/fords-trial-minibus-ride-sharing-scheme-to-launch-in-london.  It sounds something like a songtel service, only much more expensive and you have to book in advance???  Maybe we should send an invasion party over there to civilize these Western savages.

''Maybe we should send an invasion party over there to civilize these Western savages.''

UK Cheats

Who was throwing a wobbly about cheating in thai schools, the biggest cheats are you own people like the UK gov ...
Every western country seems to have big problems, what a state they have got themselves into, not only america with you know who, but the UK they seem to cheat and lie and get away with it.

they tell you work and save for your old age, earn a nice bit of interest on your savings, what interest. it ain"t worth a carrot. then when you think your gonna retire at 65 they increase the retiring age a couple more years.

You pay the same as the next man but if you retire in thailand you don't get the yearly inflation increase in your pension, in my book that's illegal, not even in the small print. That's cheating.

The banks, my deposit accounts in UK pay 0.60%, my deposit accounts in Thailand pay 1.50%. so who's managing their country better.

6 penneth o chips with crackling please

Hi Roger, hope you are OK. I think you have moved from Korat?  Just now I am in Berlin for a short work trip. Not sure if we could stage an invasion from here, it didn’t work before.
