It's not George. It's Sean. As for the rest, do you have somebody nearby who might be able to translate for you? All I get is that you seem to be asking for a devaluation of the GBP. Is that correct?

No worries mate. Just that it came around the same time as I posted and it might have been a little confusing. On that note though, are you saying that all hard work are equal but some hard work are more equal than others?

Everyone's equal? Tinker, tailor, solider, \\\ /////, butcher, baker, candlestick-maker? I agree because it is all about time, and not money.

Why is it then that a Mcdonalds cashier in Birmingham makes more per hour than a Mcdonalds cashier in Buriram?

Hi Sean , maybe cos our national minimum wage is set much higher in the UK than in Thailand , and if McDonalds had to pay the same hourly rate in Bururam they would have to sell their burgers at the same price as they are in Birmingham and would be closed down in a matter of days due to no one buying their fast food, any company who is preprepared to invest hundreds of million,s in another country deserves a good return , this is how employment is created pure and simple, cos to make money they have to employ people , of course there are those on the left that preach they are being exploited, I used to see it all the Time when the workers were going on marches,s with banners flying screaming for the right to be "exploited",LOLOLOL.

So now you admit that all hard work is equal but some hard work is more equal than others, because it is good for the annual reports on profit/loss.

That's why I made the pun about Greed and Greek. You can work that one out yourself, I'm sure. What you like Mister? Supasize?


---o0o---

Anyway mate, it's just gone 18:30 here in Perth and the Sun is down, and I've had the tv dinner, so I'm off to read my book and go to bed. It's Fishing For Stars - Bryce Courtenay's latest - a sequel to The Persimmon Tree. Great book, but thanks fot this discussion and I'll catch up with you in the morning. Norn laab faan dee! :cheers:

This tip could make you a lot of baht and, in the unlikely event the baht doesn't revalue, you wont have lost anything :cheers:

Hey Pappy , actually its only 2 months if you are not a first time applicant for a retirement or marriage visa , I know for sure cos i,ve just done my annual , but thanks for the thought anyway , personally for me i,m going to cane the 800,000 cos i got 69 to the the pound 14 months ago so why should I get funds from were ever if i,m only getting 52 right now, who knows what the Baht will be in 9 months time , maybe i,ll ask George(Scy) Soros for "insider" advice, by all accounts he,s a mean hand on money speculation , even though he contends that capitalism is akin to fascism, Hmm somewhat puzzled on that one!!.LOLOLOL.

It doesn't matter what you paid for them THB800,000 = GBP15,000 today and when the baht goes to 60 you'll get THB900,000 if it goes back to 69 you'll get over THB1 million or you can just buy back the THB800,000 you need and keep the profit in GBPs safe in the UK :idea:
As sure as "eggs is eggs" the baht has to revalue and it won't be getting stronger, in fact it's started to slip this week :cheers:
I firmly understand the point you are making Pappy,and in truth its a good one, but when it comes down to money speculating i,m a coward at heart and only bet on sure fire things ,which at this moment in time is the 69 I received , frankly I feel i,m somewhat out of my depth here and I think its best for me to leave it to the real experts like Scy Soros in Trang,LOLOL, and anyway the bulk of my money is not here in THAILAND so if the Baht do,s weaken i,ll gain that way won,t I.
