Why is this even newsworthy? You have two people who would like to have at least a little privacy in their lives and be out of the spotlights. This couple cannot fart without the news agencies providing their opinions.
I would agree BUT these are not just any two people and sadly even without farting will be hounded the rest of their lives .

Perhaps its only me, but I must say I find it more than a bit rich that someone who was an actress and relied on getting as much publicity as humanly possible to further her career along with her 3 million instagram 800k facebook and 350k Twitter followers netting an estimated 80,000 USD per year in sponsorship/endorsements should suddenly (when it suits) hate everything and everyone involved in publicity and want to be left alone ............... maybe she should take a bit of time to think where she would be today without the paperazzi and publiity

I answered that very relevant question a few days ago;

Not sure about the relevance to Udon Thani, but anyway it will give the execrable British press something to focus on, and arouse the prurient interest of (some of) the resident UT poms.
By now, you can probably substitute "maintain" for "arouse" above. :?
Some (obviously) remain simply aroused but need ED medication for that arousal to be maintained?

For me, religiously checking the General Udon Thani "General Udon Thani topics only!" Forum and getting the Mods to move the daily cow splat of non Udon-centric drivel (like this) to where it is either better served or dies an ignominious death gives me a huge erection. On some days, like today, I even need to physically push it aside to see if the sun has risen yet.

However, this particular thread has been doing remarkably well considering it was removed from 'life support' well before it reached 2 pages.

Mentioning the Mail Online, the British Press and the BBC in the same single inference indicates a sparse knowledge of the British media. That's like serving pork scratchings in a Muslim cafe or offering a prawn cocktail on a kosher menu.
Oh, you mean this?
A chap just has to read the Mail Online to appreciate the distorted scrutiny that H&M undergo. The British Press (like the BBC) seem to have a view that they have a right to invade privacy in the name of national interest. They need to be reined in.
You're saying I shouldn't group the British Press, the Mail Online and the BBC together?

OK, no worries. Jack, does that make things clearer, old chum? The kosher menu thing is a bit of a red herring.

No. I was suggesting that you could broaden your UK-centric news sources.

Deleting that MailOnline browser bookmark wouldn't be a bad start.

BTW, have you seen the price of the haddock fillets at Villa?

The problem as I see it , is that too many people believe what they read from one or two preferred sources, rather than get a broad perspective of the situation, adding a bit of common-sense, plus what life has taught one and then come to a reasoned response .
Someone mentioned that they find it amazing that a person who sought media coverage to enhance their career , is now bemoaning that self same media intrusion, you forget before it was intrusion that made her money, now that intrusion is because of who she married , nothing more complex and she intends to make money out of those recent nuptials, difficult for a person who made money that way to forget her history, some manage it others do not. Harry was at least very good at being economical with the truth part of the reasons he stated enhance his hatred of all things media related but he forgot to add that this may have been driven in part by his wife, but you have to take your hat off to him, he must love her a lot to do what he did.

Wonder which Hockey Team they will cheer for?
Vancouver Edmonton Calgary Toronto or Montreal
If they do want to watch football it will be with the CFL Teams (Canadian Football League)

They will also have to start with he Canadian Language, eh, 2-4 or a Flat ( a case of 24 beers), a "60" is a 60 ouncer of liquor,
Caesar ( a vodka based cocktail using Clamato Juice), a Mickey (375ml of Liquor), The In and Out Store refers to the beer or Liquor store, Tuque is a knitted hat, Homo Milk is whole milk oh and it comes in a plastic bag
and more

Good luck to them

"Wonder which Hockey Team they will cheer for?

based purely on the fact that they live on Vancouver Island I suspect there may be a case for the canucks (although they may opt for Seattle from next year ........ depending on helicopter flight paths & access of course)

Years ago in Australia when the old biddies in the local lawn bowls club wanted info on the royal family that went to this source. Perhaps would suit some members here for any further info.

Sorry milk is sold in many provinces in Canada

Bagged milk is common in many parts of Canada. The innovation was introduced in 1967 by DuPont using European equipment. The new packaging quickly found favour with the domestic dairy industry, being lighter and less fragile than glass bottles. However, the consumer public preferred plastic jugs for years, but largely accepted the new containers in certain regions in the 1970s. A major reason for that shift was with the national conversion to the metric system, which was easier to adjust to on production with bags, while doing the same for jugs required entire systems to be wholly redesigned.[12] Regulation in Ontario that required retailers to collect a deposit on milk jugs, but not bags, also motivated the practice
Milk bags are sold in eastern Canada, but not widely in western Canada (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia)

Thanks for your offering

The Harry and Sparkle fuss has given Prince Andrew the opportunity to slip back into the lime light beside his mum. I saw videos of him with the Queen at church last weekend. :cry:

I hope the media's current fixation with the entitled Sussexes quickly passes.

I am lead to believe that our very own pipas actually wrote the lead story from that cover - back in January 2019.

Just so that Canadians will understand your comment "Canada's top Ice Hockey Team"

They do not refer to it as Ice Hockey in Canada its just called Hockey.
If this is used Ice Hockey to distinguish the 2 types of Hockey then you would need to start to refer to the other as "Grass Hockey", but we cant use that either as Grass/Marijuana is legal in Canada now so it would have to be called (as a suggestion) Lawn Hockey

Hope this helps

P.S. As for the French team being called Canada's top team you certainly are taking your life into your own hands. Good Luck
