Thanks for the welcome , thaiga I spent most of my working life in Leicester ( H.M. Prison Service ) and managed to get early retirement on health grounds , I first came to Thailand on holiday 10 years ago and that changed things for ever .

Welcome US. I once lived in Leicester and know the prison well - from the outside that is.

The first thing to learn about living in the Korat area is that it has much more to offer than you will find in the town, especially for a family man such as yourself.

Hi Liam,

I noticed that you are have a link in your profile to the Storm Front. Is that a joke or are you honestly member of such a white supremacist organization? Does Korat Fart really want links from its site to such websites? I am surprised that no one else noticed.

Hi H2S,

welcome to our forum, and many thanks for the alert!

Indeed "Uncle Somchai" in his profile and as HP link under his avatar does promote the "stormfront.org/forum, which claims "We are a community of White Nationalists. There are thousands of organizations promoting the interests, values and heritage of non-Whites. We promote ours."

I do agree that this link is not suitable for this website. I did therefore remove it. :fart

I'm not prissy about race, colour or creed and I have my own views. However, having looked at that website, I have to say that it is not something with which I would want to be associated, directly or indirectly.

Well done JF and well spotted H2S. I must check the profiles of new members before responding to their posts.

Sorry BF, couldn't spot anything that can be taken as a typo. Some people just have "lots to bear". And some name those lots, not that there were lots only, etc. And hep is defined by Wikipedia: "Head end power, a method for providing electricity to train carriages" or "High Explosive Plastic general purpose ammunition" or even refer to "The Hep-Hep riots - a series of antisemitic riots in Germany and neighbouring countries in 1819."

My membership to that particular internet forum in question may not be some thing people here can tolerate , and I respect that , every one should have the right to freedom of speech and I strongly feel I have the right to stand up and be counted . I have many times physically and verbally fought for this view. If I have in any way offended any one here , I humbly apologies and it was not my intent to do so.

Hi Liam,

only posting the link to that forum on this site here was not tolerable. Links do count as recommendations on the search engines. From my personal and hopefully the vast majority of our members' and readers' stance white supremacist media and their propaganda cannot be supported. Your membership there is none of our business. Maybe you're a member there because you want to help them change to better...

You certainly do have the right to freedom of speech. And of course you can stand up and be counted. But how far you can use this medium koratfart.com for propagating white supremacy is another question. Linking to a white supremacist forum in your profile is considered abuse. Because the link cannot be commented on or discussed about on the spot to enable others to carefully consider clicking it or not. Also posting such a link in your profile cannot be counted as speech; it falls more under the definition of spam, especially since it isn't a home page of yourself, but a public forum.

 :cheers

I can tolerate it but history shows that racist organisations aren't as tolerant as I am. I'm sorry that you have felt the need to support your views physically.

Some of these organisations promote a creed that seems acceptable but just below the surface is rank intolerance and hatred of people who are born different from the membership. 'White' is OK but 'supremacy' is not.

I once studied the website of a political organisation in the UK that is labelled, by mild people, as 'right wing'. Some of the parliamentary reforms that were suggested were interesting and not at all racist. I called the local organiser to see what he might say and was treated to an unsolicited monologue of irrational hatred against blacks, Jews, Asians, East Europeans and Muslims. Everyone in those groups was classes by that person as inferior and goodness knows what he would have done with them if his party came to power.

Rational views are worthy of discussion but the suggestion that someone is superior only because of the colour of his skin is utter nonsense. If some white people feel hard done by, then surely their issue is one of equality, not supremacy.

I would add that there are some white foreigners here who regard themselves as better than the locals. Whatever one's personal views, I would suggest that it's not a good idea to treat Thai people as inferior, especially in their own country. Thailand is regarded by some as a racist country. If that is so, a white supremacist who comes to live here might soon learn how it feels to have the shoe on the other foot.

Thanks for your comment relating to my own personal views and affiliations , could it remotely be that just because a person is associated with a certain type or category of public forum , they are instantly branded as some one who has an ebullience for all that forums content , I am and will surly remain a stand up man for the right to voice my own personal opinions , views and thoughts. As for Thailand and its '' white '' foreigners , and how these '' white '' foreigners tend to treat the local indigenous population , personally I have in all my years of residing here never once thought of them as being inferior , lacking in personal responsibility , yes but inferior never. I love my Thai wife and two beautiful  daughters , they have a different shade of skin, do I think I am superior because of the color of my skin , no . I would like to respectfully point out that I do on occasion when alone , browse several well known gay and bondage web sites , but strangely I feel no affection or desire to purchases tight fitting pink gentlemen's undergarments or leather restraining straps. :wai

I was speaking how a redneck would say the word help.  "Let me hep you."  Have you ever been to Texas?  They really do speak like that.  This reminds me of a funny joke.  It goes like this.

A Texan went to Chicago, where he thought he would buy a new "city"
outfit. He went into Marshall Fields and, when asked by a sweet young
woman if she could help him, he answered, "Yes, ma'am. Ya see, I'm
from Texas, and I want to buy a complete city outfit."
Her eyes lit up as she asked, "Where would you like to start?"
"Well, ma'am, how about a suit?"
"Yes, sir. What size?"
"Size 53 tall, ma'am."
"Wow, that's really big."
"Yes, ma'am, they really grow them big in Texas."
"What's next?" she asked.
He replied, "How about some shoes?"
"What size?"
"Size 15 double D."
"Wow, that's really big!"
"Yes, ma'am. They really grow them big in Texas."
"What's next?"
"Well, I reckon I'll need a shirt."
"Yes, sir. What size?"
"Nineteen and a half neck, size 52," he replied.
"Wow, that's really big!"
"Yes, ma'am. They really grow them big in Texas."
"Will there be a nything else?" she asked.
"Yes, ma'am. I spect I'll need a hat."
"Yes, sir. What size?"
"Eight and five-eighths."
"Wow, that's really big!"
"Yes, ma'am. They really grow them big in Texas."
The woman virtually glowed as she asked, "Is there anything else I can
do for you?"
"No, ma'am , I reckon that will be all."
As the sweet young thing tallied up his bill and as the Texan counted
his money, she blushed and asked, "Sir, could I ask you a question?"
"Yes, ma'am, I already know what it is. And the answer is four
inches."
Astonished, she blurted out, "Why, my boyfriend is bigger than that!"
Without so much as a stutter, the Texan replied, "From the floor,
ma'am?"

Where were you living in Leicester? I lived there for a few years and loved the town. Perhaps it's changed in the last few years.

Saf, on my last secondment I was living in a place called Wigston , and serving at the Glen Parva young offenders remand centre , a great place to work , but very tough regimes . Ive still got a lovely scar to remind me never to turn my back when facing some one who dislikes authority .

I much preferred my time spent working in some of the , shall we say more bespoke long term custodial establishments, after a few years dealing with the scum , you either hard up or as in some cases , move on. I never did HMP Leicester , but from mates who were there , its was real overcrowded and a bugger of a governor. 

The the prison service had its motto (  Decency dignity and duty with care )  we screw's had ours   :punch

Somewhere in the County is a prison that I recall was special in some way. Out in the sticks. You can see it from the road but it's out in the fields. I knew the lady Governor for a while. Lovely lady but I bet she was well on top of the job.

As the saying goes, its a small world. The center was off the road and a bit hidden , I had a small house in Orange street and when off duty my local was the Old Crown in Moat street  , a lot of my work mates did some moonlighting as security guards or door supervisors at well known Leicester night spots , I did a stint as a door man , and really loved it . I think the prison you are thinking about may be HMP Gartree in Market Harborough , I never worked there as it was a maximum place , well known for inmates trying to get sprung by helicopter. So where in Wigston ( south or magna ) did you live , and what type of work earned you your crust?

Small world indeed!

Garston, that was the one. And now you remind me, I think I can remember the helicopter escape attempt. The 'special' aspect I was thinking of must be the maximum security. I wish I could remember the Governor's name. We were on a course together for two years at the Poly.

We lived in Wigston Magna, up the road from you. The road to the M1 lies through South Wigston past the Premier Drums factory. A manager from there was on the same Poly course. Our local pub was a featureless estate pub owned by Everards. We used to walk down a farm track to the canal until the farmer closed it off. That canal completely dried out one year. I worked in town for an insurance company. That office is long gone.

Leicester has gone to pot since we lived there. I was never a towny at heart so we would go around the countryside from Wigston and up to Charnwood Forest for a chnage of air.
