    When values plummet

    News, Postbag, Published on 02/03/2018

    » The raison d'etre for the coup four years ago was to root out corruption. I think only the most gullible fell for that ploy to wrest power from a democratically elected government. I suppose that the wealthy and well-connected were getting nervous to see their position and privileges being whittled away and threatened by a government supported by "red buffaloes" from the North, and getting afraid of no longer being first in the queue to receive the fruits of corruption.

    Black Panther is stylistic substance

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 19/02/2018

    » Having been in a movie black hole of sorts for the past few months, I was completely oblivious to what the movie Black Panther is, when my best friend suggested we go see it. The only thing I knew was that it would be a Marvel movie featuring a cast made up of a majority of African-Americans and Africans. This, of course, is rarer than a blue moon, and was enough to pique my interest. Fine by me. In fact, I would be most intrigued to watch a superhero film where the black guy isn't the sidekick or someone likely to get shot within the first 12 seconds.

    Possibly time to look on the bright side

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 07/01/2018

    » Having just about scraped through the Year of the Chicken, here we are seven days into 2018 and wondering what's in store during the Year of the Dog. It probably won't be all that great, but we'll leave the gloom and doom to the experts. Let's just hope it's a least a bit more enjoyable than the past couple of years which have really been quite awful, and almost of an annus horribilis nature.

    Facing the music on a desert island

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 05/02/2017

    » The daily news is so depressing it is time for a bit of unabashed escapism. Last weekend marked the 75th anniversary of Desert Island Discs, one of BBC Radio's most iconic programmes. The format involves celebrities being interviewed about their life and selecting eight records if castaway on a desert island. Each guest is allowed a book of their choice and an inanimate luxury.

    Leave Yingluck be

    Oped, Postbag, Published on 13/01/2018

    » Re: "Officials 'must capture Yingluck'," (BP, Jan 12). We should all extend our sympathy to the government for having to resist pressure from various sources to pursue extradition proceedings against Yingluck Shinawatra.

    A fond farewell to my little furry friend

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 24/12/2017

    » My dog Toby died last Sunday and I've been a bit down in the dumps this week. He was only a little fellow -- a Shih Tzu -- but had been a faithful companion for 14 years and brought me much happiness. Like anyone who has had a pet for that long, I'm going to miss him desperately.

    Food for thought and deep pockets

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 17/12/2017

    » Reading about the launch of Bangkok's first-ever Michelin Guide, I felt a little guilty having just consumed my own gourmet dish of baked beans on toast. A generous topping of grated parmesan cheese hardly lifted it into a creation that would win the approval of a Michelin bon vivant. Anyway, congratulations to all the restaurants that get a mention, even though I can't afford them. I wonder if any of them do a chip butty or mushy peas?
