I am not British and my children born here. We are a big family and many responsiblities and property we have to take care, too. It is for single persons a bit different as if you have to take care of many people or many responsiblities. And if you have a Thai family they have many connections and responsibilities they cannot cut because of some Clowns. I can understand if you talk about longterm torists or retirees that have to look only about themself but most Foreigners or expats living here permanently have a family , a company or work for a company here. Many European companies (2000 companies only from Germany) you see them everywhere Bosch, Siemens, ABB, Grimm, Haefele ,Haier, Spar, etc, etc. So to think every or most Europeans here are for short time and just as longterm tourist or retiree here is a bit like not to know a lot about Thailands economy and structure. Maybe you meet only europeans in the Isaan in the village or bars , I guess.
Sorry James, many foreigners do work amd live here and the current situation DOES affect them!! They have every right to question the incompetence of Chanocha et al. EVERY RIGHT!! And please stop using the 'farang' word... has nobody told you it's offensive and not used by Thais in a complimentary manner! Soidog is perfectly correct to raise questions about the government and, if it ruffles feathers then great!!
