Re: Rubbish disposal in Hua Hin

I know the plant you're talking about. I used to live nearby. I don't think you're allowed to dump there. It's only for council bin lorries. Plus, I believe they are in the process of moving it altogether, although it seems to be taking forever.

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

even abolished in Europe a lot of people regret it.
Just to add to that. The majority of people in Europe are against the death penalty. 'A lot of people regret it' is true but they are not in the majority.

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

Seems it's impossible for you to have a reasoned debate. Give me an argument to back up your view instead of just shouting your mouth off. I have thought a lot about this and done quite a bit of research and although an 'eye for an eye' seems fair, the problem is that mistakes are made and that is i...

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

I was on the side of justice, not the 'butcher'! If mistakes can be made, and they have, then it has to be wrong. If you do your research, most of the families who have seen the perp executed (whether viewed or not) have reported that it adds to the horror and many, if not most, have become advocate...

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

“He made one last call to Mum just before he entered the execution room – but she didn’t answer the phone soon enough,” one of Thirasak’s sisters said. She said Thirasak had, however, managed to talk on the phone to his first wife. They had two children together. “When Mum answered the phone again ...

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

Sentenced on Monday, dead on Tuesday. Bullet in back of head. (With the proviso that there is no doubt of guilt, of course). And therein lies the problem. There have been cases where 'there is no doubt of guilt' only later to be found innocent. A wrong that can never be put right. Therefore the the...

Re: Thailand has become new 'e-waste' and plastic dumping ground

He added that the perpetrators are “foreigners who have exploited Thailand, taken their money back home and left pollution behind.”
Of course, it's someone else's fault!
Gen Prawit also ordered a strict watch
To add to his collection..... lol

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...

If you maintain an address in the UK and shown on an electoral register, then you a...

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...
