That's a diverse range of Hungers strikers.

Nothing is far from perfect in the UK, but we carry on.

And of course everything is fine and dandy in France. 

Foreigners bashing is the sport of the British whose culture is restricted to reading tabloids.

It is appaling to see that some are tryong to impose the style of the PY clique here : almost 600 posts and not even an attempt to share original information on ladyboys, bring something new or value the ladyboys scene.

Good luck for your waiting for Pattaya's reopening man.

Bit Lemon tonight aren't we Monsieur.

To actually compare myself to the Politburo and party members well that is just only plain silly.

I think you do a pretty good job at mimicking what lies beyond the 38th parallel all by yourself.

Pubs and bars must hurry to register for the assessment by the CCSA on Friday November 26th

writes Channel 7 today (using Google translate) they write:

This week is an important week in terms of the number of infections, the death numbers as well as the numbers of (c19 positive?) tourists coming into Thailand.

On November 26th (this Friday) there will be a BIG meeting with the PM. 

1,443 pubs, bars and karaoke places have been registered so far. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration conducted a preliminary survey of 975 places. Ready to open are 225 locations that comply with standards!

That's 23% of the bars that have been inspected already but only 16% of the bars that have been registered so far ...

Entrepreneurs who have not registered with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration are requested to hurry to register!

I hope Mr Flowers and all the other bar owners have meanwhile properly registered their bars or will do so ASAP!

When bars reopen, people are asked to "watch out if they find an establishment that violates the rules", writes Channel 7 in a different story.

Musicians today demonstrated in front of the Government House asking the government to end the entertainment venue lockdown

writes the Dailynews today, November 23rd:

The musicians asked for the opening of entertainment venues on December 1st already.

They complain that they don't have anything to eat, that they had to borrow money from friends, and that they had no money for child tuition fees. Many even had to move their families back to their hometowns. 

Some musicians had to change jobs and found work as gardeners or security guards.

Night entertainment was closed first and opens now last they complain.

The government told them not to be selfish but on the other hand they had to endure for more than 2 years now already... 

The demonstration took place today November 23rd at Nang Loeng junction in Bangkok near Government House (office of the PM). The group of musicians and night workers was led by Ms. Thanaporn Wichan an activist for the Labor Network for People's Rights.

The group of demonstrators submitted a letter to the government demanding the loosening of night entertainment restrictions.

They demonstrated against the PMs recent announcement to postpone the opening of entertainment venues, pubs, bars, karaoke until January 16th of next year.

The demonstrators want bars to be opened on December 1st as previously planned.

The demonstration was peaceful writes the Daily News.

Prachatai also published the letter by the demonstrators to the PM. Among their specific demands:

Sale of alcohol should be extended until midnight.

Entertainment venues, pubs, bars, and karaoke facilities that are unable to open on December 1st, should receive a compensation that should be going to musicians, singers, artists and other related night service workers in the right amount (enough for sustenance)...

Loosely translated from Thai into English via Google Translate so please bear with me.

Bangkok's radio station FM91 has the reaction from government:

In the case of pub and bar operators calling to open bars before January 16th, 2022, Mr. Anutin Charnvirakul, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health said that such a matter can be done or not. We have to consider the safety of most of the people. Currently, we have relaxed a lot of measures.

Nightwish made Soi 6 more profitable pre-Covid.

But I thought the old style bars of Soi 6 were a better experience for me.   

Different strokes. 

I agree with you. But even so, If it wasn't for him the demolition process of the locale would of escalated.

I appreciate the fact he's not everyone's cup of Tea. But he was doing ok with his business model yeah. Although some are highly critical of him.

Wags inside the jail were heard singing "Could you go a Cornish Pastie Bobby Sands" !

Graffiti appeared on the walls in the area - "We'll not forget you Billy Sands" ! 

Was working down in NSW and having a morning break, went to the local bakery. There was a sign advertising Cornish Pasties. I asked the girl, (about 19), if they were genuine Cornish Pasties, made in Cornwall. She said I will check on that and went out the back. My mate doubled up with laughter until she returned saying " no, they are made locally". I said I would have something else thanks. Made my day!.

You should try a Bedford Clanger Woodie.

The Pastie is in two halves savory/sweet. A whole meal in a pastie :-).

Actually have been to Bedford many times. Stayed in a village named Oakley, not far out of town. Loved Oakley but not Bedford so much.
