    I foretold a Brexit vote would hasten the demise of , lead to a contraction in the economy, threaten the GFA and engender political turmoil.
    a 3 week old baby with a nappy full of shit couls have made such an obvious prediction.

    you need to look further than the end of your civil service issue pencil.

    in 10 years time the uk, or probably england because the jocks will have shot themselves in the foot and the micks joined forces with their brothers in the south, will have a thriving economy.

    and a prime minister does not need to be constrained by the mores of the ashen faced sanctimonious virtue signallers howling from the backbenches to do his job properly

    There is no Retox Bar in Jontiem. The two they have left are Retox Game On which is on Soi Honey and Retox Outback which is on the darkside. The one on Soi Honey is currently up for sale with a 12.5 million baht asking price.

    I hear Jaybees has now been sold to some Danish guy and Sunnys which changed to Chill Garden for 3 months is now sold to some Korean and will be a hot pot place

    those places are money laundering or ego trip bars, they usually end up closed

    open in great fanfare, only to close quietly,

    At least Retox raised the bar (or lowered it?) when it came to price competitiveness. But like so many before them, over ambitious- and other bars soon followed suit and competed. I had heard they were in deep doodoo before I left Pattaya 15 months ago. Maybe with a key location in Patt's, and the Darkside bar seems to do OK, they will soldier on in trimmed down form. Or maybe it will all go to shite like most other Pattaya bars. And then a new sucker comes along- rinse and repeat.

    In my view been mongering since 1990 and following pattaya, retox tried, however looked shady from the start, once the novelty wore off was hard to continue, why lot fail, and when they started Poms exchange rate was amazing.

    Got me stuffed how scooters still going owner must have deep pockets

    I believe Retox Outback has returned 100% to the original owner and is called the Outback Bar once again.

    Heaps of bars and restaurants which will not reopen including Moonies and Mary Lou's which was a very popular bar on Nung Plub Wan.

    Also I note that there are many establishments up for sale and rent.

    I didn't mind some of the dishes at the Retox. In fact, some were as good as anywhere in Pattaya. But I won't miss the tattooed slobs and petty criminal types who frequented the place.

    A friend does just that, he has 4 neighbouring condos, 3 connected to live in and the sparsely furnished 4th for visitors. He says they come, look around, not impressed, know that best outcome is to do the deed and leave, which is the way he wants it.
