What absolute garbage! Anybody who STILL believes all this propaganda and fear mongering needs psychiatric help urgently!! Wake up you damned fools!! You are being screwed!!

Wait a minute I'll just pop out and wake up those 101 people who died yesterday and ask them if they are fooling.  You really believe what you wrote ? you can't be serious as John McEnroe famously said.

From UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office Web Site:

Note sub paragraph in Section C which seems to be a policy desire to assist UK citizens living outwith the EU without relying on the UK's National Health Service. Hopefully FCO will advise / instruct overseas Embassies to assist the roll out of vaccines in ASEAN countries.

The vaccines are an experiment. While current data may look good testing them is far from over. 

That's right. That is why is said: "no need for more" :))))

Let's see if the teflon staff at the British Embassy take any notice of that

Thailand is at the state of Europe/US in the spring '20, and has been for weeks. You'd know it if they were conducting the level of Malaysia testing, which has been double of Thailand's. Limited testing, limited infections, for certain countries, the "chart" is, and has been, priority one. Basically you can multiply the daily numbers by 5-10.

I was referring to the post that I quoted.  Your fascination with toilets is duly noted.   Perhaps the cleaning that you referred to is why Thai people smile so much.

Apologies @bushav8r, I read the quote a couple of times and still didn’t see the word, hence my false assumption. That said, toilets can be fascinating things, especially for the millions in the world who don’t have one. I’m lucky in that I have 3 in my house ?

I believe Aussie Bob referred to a "bogan' in one of his posts.....possibly the one that bushav8r replied to (but the the full original post is not visible on the thread when replying).....if that makes sense !

Yes I think that was my confusion.  It’s not a term I’ve ever heard either. I have a friend who runs a bar in BKK who looks very similar to the picture posted by AussieBob recently. I’ll ask him about the word next time I see him!!

I only have one, but I really want to install a "bum gun".  Dry paper just isn't effective.

It just caught my eye because I have heard the term used here in Canada in a much different context.  Crusty old bush pilots used to refer the native population as bogans... It was a abbreviation for toboggans as they typically moved their stuff around on toboggans in the winter.  Big toboggans loaded heavily with moose meat.  I have seen many guys in Bangkok who look like AussieBob...err..I mean Aussiebobs picture.

A picture is worth a thousand words:

Dont get me wrong - they are very friendly people (mostly) and they are OK (in small doses). But their understanding of how to get things done and how to do them right is not one of their strong suits - she'll be right mate is their mantra - for everything.  They love Football, Meat Pies, Kangaroos and Beer.  I like all of those things - but in moderation. And going to Maccas or KFC is not going to a restaurant for a 'fancy night out'.
