Thai women have a different concept of the word smoking ....... :baby: ..... 

great piece of footage of the great Irish playwright Brendan Behan's auld ma. She's got a fag in one hand and a massive whisky in the other.

Turns to the black and white camera and says in strongest Dublin accent: "Aw Jaysus the doctor just tauld me if I don't give up da fags and the booze they'll kill me .."

She was 91 at the time ...... :trink38:

It irritates me the way the immigration laws are so against UK born and bred bringing wives back , then the let any filth and scum from any country in world is allowed in if the tell lies about asylum... they are scared to challenge the lies as it’s not PC 

It embarrasses the UK 🇬🇧

It’s just wrong , evidence shows your  marriage through longevity and many other facts which are evident, she should get visa passport the lot...

That a few civil servants look to decry it is disgusting, there are how many million illegals in ..

Its all about evidence... Just wrong mate , broken Britain now embarrassing Britain 🇬🇧 

Tragic it is ..

How many thais enjoy being seen by a Paki doctor that can't speak their language and freezing their ass off 11.5 months of the year?

Thais that want to go overseas dream of America, Japan and other world leaders. The UK is near the bottom somewhere barely above Cambodia.

A country has nothing to do with a partner, 50% of marriages end in divorce 30% are dysfunctional...

When we first got married I was working and living in Manchester UK. Gave the missus the option of what she wanted to do. She wanted to move to the UK.

She absolutely loved living in the UK and never wanted to leave when I was offered a position in my old company in Australia. Took her far longer to adjust to living in Australia than it did for the UK. She always tells anyone that will listen that she would move back to the UK to live at the drop of a hat.

It’s funny, Switzerland seems very high on the list of many Thais to visit. I think because of the mountains, they don’t realise you can see spectacular Alpine views in France and Italy amongst other countries also....
