Murmurings from the moobahn suggest that the quest for access to or control of vast sums of money could be somewhere in the mix.
That is indeed the word on the street here too .
There is something very fishy going on for sure , but will the truth ever out . I doubt it .

Re: School Sex Abuse Cases Spark Alarm

Its not in the elites interest to educate the masses to any great extent , because educated people tend to ask questions about how the country is run , and how fairly the pot is being distributed . I feel sorry for Thai kids , many of the poor souls do not have a chance , unless of course they are b...

Re: Why won't she marry me

Genuine girls are out there, I’ve been happily married to mine for 14 years and I know there’s some that have been married/living to their Thai wives even longer than that, they aren’t all bad it’s just that the horror stories are usually the ones that we hear about. Very true Vince . In my mind wo...

Re: Thailand reports no new CORVID-19 cases for 4th time this month

The emergency powers and curfew have the same purpose now as it did when it was introduced .
Keep the population , or the vast majority of it , poor and subservient .
Show them whos in charge and stop the rumbling of discontent that was gaining momentum prior to covid 19.

Re: Alcohol sales ban!

The only logic i can see in not selling alcohol with a meal is maybe the diners may stay a little longer at the table drinking . Yet the process of drinking a beer is no different from drinking a coffee or sickly sweet beverage . The results are different , but not the process . With limited seatin...

He has to go. He should also face a criminal sanction. A fine, or whatever is usually imposed. The British elite failed to take the Coronavirus sufficiently seriously and as a result over 100,000 mainly elderly Brits will die. The figure might go over 200,000 in the next few years unless better cou...

Re: power bill reductions (covid-19)

our bill seemed to reflect our higher consumption during April-May billing period. So, no match with our February bill, higher by about a thousand baht. I thought that your bill would only match Febs bill if you used less than 800 units in April , May . My consumption was well over 800 units , but ...

Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

Just watched some news ,80% of the deaths in Canada are in care homes . That's shocking . If this does turn out to be seasonal like the flu it won't be long before there are no old people left .

Udon map is not the same as it used to be, when I first joined people were much more civil and helpful.
