    Spotted that his morning. It was a long time ago and Thailand has come a long way since then, about 1 milimetre to be exact.

    Obviously the current incumbent is going to say nice things about his country of station. He's a diplomat, that's his job. I'm sure his real opinions are not quite as 'diplomatic'.

    "licentiousness is the main pleasure of them all"

    Had to look that up....

    "licentious -lacking legal or moral restraints; especially : disregarding sexual restraints"

    Most apt, i think.

    Would you trust your life to QUINTIN QUALE - where the fuck did he get that name - probably spent his formative years being an orifice for the Public School Prefects - The Tom Brown, getting it up the ass by Flashman!

    Bet he is a really helpful Down To Earth Guy..when you need help with a visa or a settlement visa...I bet he bends over backwards to help us scum!

    You just know where he came from. Although he did come across as a straight up sort of guy when sorting out the black chick in Laos.
    Yes, I know straight up the jacksy.

    But seriously, the old toff describes a society where money talks and bullshit walks. No money no honey. Money rules this country and nothing else. We can go on for ages about the political heirachy, the red and yellows, the police, the army, the people we don't talk about but it's all about money. This is a country where it is acceptable to buy votes, so much for democracy.
    The rich rule Thailand and they know to continue to rule and stay rich the poor must stay poor, that's the way it's always been here and the rich like it that way.
    That's why Thailand has not moved forward in 42 years.
