A LITTLE LIGHT RELIEF
Britain comes in at a poor number 10.
As a result posters are saying ‘Well done Thailand. At least your men are honest”. Ah another case of statistics telling lies. But I love it.
In Thailand of course if a husband commits adultery it is no cause for divorce if he is still taking care of his major wife and family.
And getting a ‘husband’ to support his children in Thailand is something hard to enforce.
Most men, except Drew Noyes, are also happy to admit they have minor wives on the side. But I do not think Drew Noyes - Pattaya's most famously romantic American was included in this, er, survey.
In Britain and some other countries of course admitting to an adulterous affair can result in a life-time of debt bondage, I have heard.
In Thailand the sex trade in Bangkok of course is fed every year with young women who have previously ‘married’, have children and need a way to support those children.
But if this confirms the view that Thai men are more honest than, say, their European counterparts – all well and good.
These statistics are not necessarily the view of the Independent. They are prepared by someone else. It’s just a catchy thing to put up on the net.
Bangkok does not even rate among the top sexiest holiday destinations in the world. At the moment I am heading for No.1.
#DrewNoyes, Thailand's most famous extortionist could have put in a guilty claimed he needed to pose as a lawyer to extort foreigners in Thailand through his #PattayaTimes newspaper, #OneStopLegalServices or #PappaCo to feed his nine in Thailand. Alas he did not think of the Oliver Twist plea. Now he is appealing a two year jail sentence.
CORRECTION: Earlier versions of this post contained the following sentence: "Bangkok does not even rate among the top ten sexist holiday destinations". Sexist should of course have read sexiest.
Thailand probably rates No 1 in the world's sexist destinations. I apologise for the error.
