slim said:lingyai I have seen this system in action. Friends of mine who worked for many years and marry a Thai then have to go to the British embassy to try and get a visa for their spouse. Meanwhile back in the UK the Asian population seem to have no problem getting spouses from India & Pakistan into the UK following an arranged marriage. This seems to be followed by other family members from the marriage being allowed in.
Lets have a level playing field, scrap the race relations act so as to stop the race card being played
Sorry to say but Thai's bring it on themselves. They have one of the worst records going for misbehaving after arriving in the country. Even the brothels in the U.K. are p****ed off with Thai hookers and would rather not employ them cos of their attitude.
Before anyone says anything I lived and worked in Thailand for 10 years, I speak reasonably good Thai, i.e. I can sit and converse in Thai about most subjects and can read basic Thai.
