Ah yes Cambodia is functioning. Bars open. Restaurants open. Open markets shut. Weather, maybe one of two hours a day of rain.

Issan john changed his name to Simon Small, and is now Stonker, but he cannot change his constant habit to correct all members posts, and impress us all with his great wisdom.

Hi Toby one of my friends lives in Phnom Penh with his Cambodian wife and Son he owns the Blue Moon bar in Rd five i believe.

See you all back here in 4 weeks for the 'Thailand is saved' article.

The story line has changed after 1 day  

https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/2156279/virus-easing-in-4-6-weeks
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha hopes the Covid-19 situation in the country will ease in the next four to six weeks, a source said, amid public concerns over a rise in daily coronavirus cases.

Or is it amid public concerns of his fake news of 2-3 weeks.

For my next trick I'll pull a rabbit out of my hat.

I think there is a little more to the origin of the word Farang.  Birdpoop Farang has a nice ring to it but is even more offensive.  Denoting someone by their skin colour is not socially acceptable in most countries.  Consider for example, *igger or *ook.  They can simply be used to indicate someone's skin colour, but are often used in a hateful or racist manner.

I will not say what Thai's in the South from BKK To Phuket call Issan people but its extremely derogatory.

Are you sure this is in Phnom Penh? I don't know of it, but I see there is a Blue Moon Bar in Sihanoukville.

While I have the greatest respect for the PM, I believe he's either getting bad advice or is trying to lift morale in this case.  Absent a vaccine that is more comprehensive in its treatment of the disease and universal availability (e.g. flu vaccine), it is very unlikely that the situation will be resolved so quickly.  One only has to look at prior pandemic experiences going back to the Black Death, which also originated in China BTW, to realize that control of the situation is at least months away.  

Wrong Drbill73 Bubonic Plague " The black Death " was spread from body lice as early as the 13th Century in England it did not come from China.

Just a seriously WRONG statement, even if in his twisted logic he thinks it will placate the loyal throng

It's still gonna bite him on the bum big time when the numbers are around 50,000 per day in 3 weeks

But perhaps that's a good thing, if it helps to bring about proper and fair Democratic change to this badly battered nation

I'm sorry you are bored

 Your analogy of Green Lights is not accurate, unless you think that covid only spreads during 9pm to 4am . 

But seriously, do you know of any reputable body that has researched lockdowns and proves it has any impact?

If not, why do you believe it?

PS: There are now several examples of states in the USA that did not implement lockdowns, and their fatalities were equal or less than states with masks and lockdowns

PPS: Lockdowns come with a terrible cost in lives and livelihoods also. You must factor this when embarking on such catastrophic actions for a disease with a 1% mortality rate, primarily in the over 70 age group

So now you are saying that if you don’t lockdown and cases fall that evidence that lockdowns don’t work! Sorry but I don’t follow the logic at all. As to the question about reputable body doing research. You don’t need research. It’s there for all to see. As I have already said, everywhere that locks down properly (not as Bangkok is doing) then lockdowns work. I also never said if they were a good or bad idea. Bullets and guns are a bad idea but they do what they are supposed to do! 
 

Of course they ruin the economy and business, they are a brute force measure. I never said they didn’t cost lives and livelihoods. I was simply challenging your statement that lockdowns don’t work. They absolutely work and achieve their sole objective to bring case numbers down. They are NOT aimed at: Curing Covid. Getting cases to Zero. Protecting the economy. Making people happy. 
 

Lockdowns, when done properly, bring case numbers down.

I seriously doubt any independent qualified scientific or medical expert would agree with this asessment.

ALL the independent, qualified, scientific and medical experts worldwide have already identified this plandemic for what it really is!! A scam!

Soidog I remember 2-3 Month's ago the UK was naming a Thai variant until someone from the Thai Government made the phone call to the British Embassy in BKK along the lines of your insulting out people stop saying that and hey presto never heare'd of it again.

Yes, it was that outcry that led to the WHO assigning Greek alphabet letters to variants. Now the U.K. media simply says things like “The Delta variant first discovered in India”. It’s also interesting how the Alpha  iris was never called the Chinese virus (apart from Trump).

Sorry AdamX but I’m so bored of seeing this kind of thing. Can you please, please explain what you mean by this? Please bear in mind lockdowns are not a cure. Their sole aim is to bring down infection rates. If the lockdowns result in case numbers going down then they have served their purpose. Every single country that has implemented a full lockdown has achieved the sole objective of bringing case numbers down.
 

You comment is like saying a Green traffic light doesn’t work as cars don’t stop at them. Lockdowns do exactly what they are designed to do. You can see it for yourself. You don’t need anyone else to help you. 

They've certainly got you brainwashed! 

" Every single country that has implemented a full lockdown has achieved the sole objective of bringing case numbers down." Absolute garbage! The lockdowns ONLY purpose is to piss people off unnecessarily and does nothing toward "bringing case numbers down"! If you were HONEST with yourself you would see that they do NOTHING!

So who funds these Independent individuals? Unless they are at the very top of the food chain, they are influenced by somebody. Look at all the Experts who cannot prove or disprove the 35000 gods throughout history. A lot of experts only give their interpretation and opinion of the facts.

So how do you explain the three lockdowns in the U.K. that brought case numbers down. Or the lockdowns in Australia that have brought case numbers down.  Or France or Spain or India or Italy. I can keep adding more examples of you wish. Lockdowns bring case numbers down and to claim otherwise puts you in pole position for the next Thai ministerial post.

People he is 100% correct ….. as in 2 weeks he will order government agencies to stop COVID19 testing …. No testing, no results, so NO outbreak. 

Absolutely correct! The tests are all bullshit anyhow, and always have been, and are only being used to keep this scam going!  Along with the fake "covid death" numbers, they are just another method to scare the shit out of the vax mad covidiots even more that they already are.

Outlandish comment.........not based in logic or scientific fact, just a desperate comment that he hopes the people are stupid enough to swallow. Too late, the people recognise him as a total fraud.

NONE of this plandemic crap is based on logic OR scientific FACT!! The whole thing is a fraud headed by WHO, CDC, Gates, Fauci and Soros!! Plenty of people have swallowed all this "covid" bullshit, hook, line and sinker, face napkins, fake tests, untested, experimental gene therapy jabs and all!

Yes, you explanation of Farang is correct. Only problem is all while people aren’t French. Some are as diverse as Russian, Argentinian, Canadian and British. So to collect the whole world that is white in one word is racist. If you don’t believe it upsets people. Try calling a Thai Burmese or worst still Lao. You will see thru don’t even like being regarded from a neighbouring country 

I see so being called a "Westerner" is not racist then as that all encapsulates Europeans and the USA plus many other countries.

What about the words "he", "she", should they be banned a they are sexist?

I and anyone I know have not felt insulted by the word 'farang', maybe you are too sensitive or are tying to be too politically correct.

Try calling a Scottish bloke English and he will punch you, but if it happened vice versa we English wold just laugh.

It does not matter what colour you are, if you are from "The West" and you do not speak Thai you are still called farang.

I am sure words can be added to the word "farang" in order to become offensive but that of course can be the same with any other word but it does not mean that single word "farang" is offensive.

No I'd throw a punch, just to perpetuate the stereotype.

The Thai authorities seem to think blacklisting foreigners is the ultimate punishment.  Perhaps it is in some cases.  Of course we are guests, but we can chose to be guests elsewhere "as well".  They have to realize that there are more places to visit on the planet.  Thy are trying hard and I wish them well.  They try  to  protect themselves from the dirty foreign menace but have done little to protect  the ones brave enough to travel to Thailand.

They do not really care about the farangs living there as they bring in only a small amount of money.

They do care about the 40,000,000 tourists a year the vast majority nowadays are not farangs but Chinese and other Asians spending 6000 baht a day.

Farangs in Thailand have too much important over themselves yet have no rights, but it is a great place for long holidays as I can ignore all the political dictatorship which goes on there.

Maybe you right but he described all europeans as this type of people and I get in the trap, he not meetd other ones where he is. Anyway we relatives in Isaan and land there so we love the Isaan don't get it wrong , I only wanted to say he doesnt know the Europeans who have families here. For any misunderstanding I apologize.

I know many Europeans who have Thai families there, most of them are married to poor uneducated Issan girls but the more intelligent ones managed to find normal educated Thai women who did not marry for money as they were genuine women, they were not thirty years younger than the farang and wanted a partner and not a money bags provider as most of the Issan women want.
