A block by the Thai government on this site seems to have done little so far to diminish readership figures, indicating that many people in Thailand may have already set up VPN connections.
Page views are still hovering around the 10,000 mark and at the moment I am considering further actions to make articles more widely accessible.
Views have been generally down to this figure since left with my children our home in Bangkok last year – and only in the last week have we settled.
But first I am seeking clarification from the relevant Thai Ministries to establish which article or articles they consider crossed their barrier.
Could for instance it be the story supporting the Bangkok Post journalist Justin Heifetz who appeared to have taken the mickey out of the Royal Thai Navy, who says he faced problems not only with an admiral but also his superiors and the Bangkok Post?
Could the Boiler Rooms bosses really have had enough influence to bring in such a block?
Our familiar American extortionist Drew Noyes has been claiming credit but his rantings are getting even more erratic by the day.
I was in the garden of a Wiltshire country pub on a sunny day downing an Arkells and watching my kids playing in the play area which so many British pubs provide now, when I heard the military government had blocked the site. That was odd – only two weeks ago Thailand’s Public Relations Department sent along a representative to give testimony for me against Thailand’s most famous fake lawyer Drew Noyes.
I’m here in ‘elf and safety’ Britain and Wiltshire is allegedly the birthplace or family seat of the ancestors of Drew Noyes (who apparently won the Battle of Hastings) and have rather taken to it.
I have been scouring from Cotswolds to Ramsbury and am now settled in a small 3 bed-roomed house and my kids have been admitted to a good school.
Posts on my site have gone down recently because, well, I am a single dad, and I’m doing the nappy changing, cooking, dressing, washing ironing etc. and so they have been a little sporadic. I won’t be returning to anything like full time work until I can get my priceless Karen nanny replaced.
Thanks to the countless well-wishers and those asking from Thailand which is the best VPN to use. I’m not an expert. I have suggested a few. Most people have tried and are seem to be getting through ok.
Perhaps those who can could help those who cannot on Facebook.
I have of course numerous options. However the best course of action is to await the answers from the relevant ministries in Thailand to see what has caused them offence.
Meanwhile I will try to get the kids used to English cuisine while I continue on a diet of as much Atlantic or North Sea fish and prawns as I can take. I might even go as far as jellied eel. So far I have only managed to sell the kids on strawberries and cream.
Meanwhile readers can expect to continue to receive the usual bundle of items they will not find in the Thai newspapers. I am in daily contact with Thailand of course.
