    Outside of BKK, fine. I rode all over the North around Udon Thani/Chang Mai. But BKK I'd consider far to dangerous.
    They are really easy to ride though, but perhaps head north and try one out before you try Bangkok.
     
    Normal for Thailand... The bikes are a very cheap way of getting around. You'll find groups of them sat around drinking on a lot of intersections or you just flag them down.

    Also when you've been saying it for 10 years people tend to ignore you
    My brother bought with a 30yr mortgage. Must be 4-5x joint. If they sprog they'll have no option but to both continue working full time.

    So you are saying to stay we should have a 2/3 majority too? What do we do, vote indefinitely until one of the results gets 2/3?
    Well I suppose indefinite voting would allow all the 17 year olds that 'missed their chance to have a say on their future' to get a say on their future... indefinitely.
    I blame the media for this... the whole sky will fall in narrative surrounding Brexit has left people hysterical.
    My partners parents are HK Chinese... how the fuck did they get here, HK isn't in the EU? Oh wait... not everything revolves around the fucking EU.

    That's why we need a perpetual vote... there will always be 17 year olds who don't get a say otherwise!

    Amazing how narrow minded and selfish some people are if all they care about is their own personal short-term needs.

    200 years ago, 'Chartist' meant someone who campaigned for the right for all men to be allowed to vote.
    Now it means Trader Numberwang.

    Speaking to my admittedly small sample of Remainers, there seems to be a deeply held lack of confidence in our abilities as a nation. "Oh how will we cope little old us all alone in the world?", I would suggest this runs through many in Goverment too... or they are all just jostling for cushy unelected positions in the EU when they 'retire'.

    And then what? 
    The negotiations have been badly handled from the outset. We import more goods from the EU than they import from us. We are one of the most important markets for their goods. can you really see BMW, Mercedes or Volkswagen, to take one of the most visible trade areas, refusing to deal with us. If punitive tariffs or obstacles to trade were imposed by the EU then surely we would retaliate in a similar vein. That would be in neither parties interests but would hurt the EU more. 
    I haven't even considered agricultural product, our milk farmers would benefit, our fishing industry would benefit. Perhaps some golf courses would be returned to agricultural production. We have a very strong aerospace industry that could be capitalised on. 
    I can't see the EU being successful in restricting travel arrangements much either. I'm sure there are more British people holidaying in Europe than vice versa. Again they would be shooting themselves in the foot.
    VAT having to be paid on European imports would have an impact on cashflow for some businesses, that could be countered by using the money we currently pay into EU coffers being used to reduce the standard rate of VAT on certain goods.
    Our trade standards and product quality are amongst the best in the world, the lack of EU certification would be countered by substitution with our own that are hjust as highly regarded.
    Freedom of movement or mobility to me isn't that big a deal anyway. If a UK citizen wants to work in Europe then their languages have always presented us with a barrier, not so the other way, again EU citizens would be more disadvantaged.
    I have always been at a loss to see why our negotiating teams were so weak.

    It is good to see there at least one or two with at least a few principles and lines they will not cross. 
    We have already been sold out, this just puts it in black and white

    If Raab were not on board then this is May's baby alone. This makes her even more culpable than Cameron. Her incompetent weak negotitation has brought  us to here. She has clearly been the same blubbering wreck in Brexit negotiation that blew her own campaign in the last election. What a bloody mess! She may easily now have f*cked up to such a level that we end up staying. I would prefer us to leave with no deal but the mechanisms ahead means we may be manipulated into staying and we would then be under worse conditions than before.
