  1. Yeah maybe - more congestion may increase the chance of someone knowing someone else. Makes sense. Most offences like that are reported by the media so fairly easy for one inmate to spot a paedo etc without a lot of doubt. So "those types" were put into their own accommodation units, areas and there are even prisons set up for specifically that demographic. "Segregation" down here was total isolation. Ideally not done for long periods of time unless absolutely necessary - I saw a few go mad because of it. Humans not interacting with other humans is not good for the mind.

    Maybe because Women Killers, Pedophiles and Rapists have more to gain by going to a women’s prison.

    In the UK, and similar no doubt in Australia, such Prisoners are segregated from general prison population

    In the system I worked - paedophiles definitely went to protection - women killers and rapists not all the time but it does happen probably more than half the time.

    Red Baron did we used to meet up in Sydney occasionally at a mutual friend now deceased? He worked for the government 

    Nope - met plenty of board members in Melbourne (and LOS) over the years but never Sydney - although now I seem to spend a lot of time Sydneyside  - generally work related.

  4. Although out of it now, I spent a decent decade and a half working in the (male) prison system down here. This goes on a bit - and it's always women killers that want it. One has been trying for close to 20 years - and is still in a male jail, so that's something. For lack of a medical diagnosis - they are just fucked. Pure and simple. Luckily the powers that be are scared to make big decisions, or more so - scared of the consequences should they approve such a transition. 


  5. Those gatherings on a Friday Night were always a good laugh and a great place to exchange stories, tips and laughs - met some absolute legends over the years. I also started in 2000. The corner bar on the 1st floor (2nd to our American friends) - Woodstock? Or was that elsewhere - For some reason I remember it did Mexican food? Then it changed to Gulliver's on Soi 7(?) and then somewhere in Cowboy.

    The other bar on the same floor of Nana did 100 baht all you could drink Changs, or 30B if you just wanted a couple. American owner IIRC. Great spot watching people coming and going.

    Still in touch with most of the original London Contingent via social media, and hopefully be able to catch up for a few frothies in a better place at some stage soon!

  6. Some blasts from the past there... I guess as we get older other things in life seem to take priority...


    sorry to hear about Moo Noi, he's on a similar forum here in oz where we exchanged recommendations some time ago - met him a few times in my heyday and seemed a nice bloke. Old Hippie - one of the greats - always spoke of catching up but dates never seemed to match. P127 - always defending the girls IIRC - met him once, him and the Hippy were mates from memory but had a falling out years ago (10?)


    Suadum - hope he's well, we used to catch up in Melb and BKK when we were in town - had some great nights with him, and lots of laughs...


    Happy to say with social media etc I am still in touch with some of the scallywags I used to knock around with in my LOS and UK days - I reckon 2016 is as good a year as any to organise a reunion...

  7. The Interview isn't " our historical symbol of free speech " - it was just made out to be that because of the ban. It would have been interesting what would have happened if (insert this wee's number one enemy's country here) had made a movie about killing a US president - what would have happened.... having said that, I thought the interview was a good laugh. Nothing more, but definitely nothing less.

  8. More to the point is there going to be a send off? A booze up? If so I'm in - would love a good excuse for a holiday.


    Seriously, well done on a good job while you were (are) in LOS, admittedly I stopped reading the "Weekly" years ago - I think I have grown out of the Thai-fever I (we all) had. I do have a look every now and then but it has been years since I have been a frequent visitor there, and most of the places mentioned I don't recognise. We met a few times at Woodstock and Gullivers, and you seem like a decent chap. Best of luck with whatever you end up doing. Yell out if you are ever in Melbourne, I'll let you buy me a beer.

  9. A long time ago, on this board, in numerous posts, he accused me of involvement in the underaged, enforced and trafficked, sex industry, because of my trip reports that talked about adult P4P in Cambodia. No-one, according to him, could pay an adult woman for sex in Cambodia, without actually being up to the eyeballs in underaged, enforced and trafficked children for sex.


    Of course I differed, I've yet to receive any apology. I think he was asked to leave the board for this and other matters.



    I remember that well, it was embarrassing to say the least (the whole "Cambodia Issue"). Start a thread on Cambo and invariably it ended in tears.


    Said that, I guess he would have been an interesting guy

  10. Wow - they are still pushing this thing? I remember when it all started and there were virtually no benefits, everything was just implied.

    5 year multiple entry visa would be attractive to some people, and would save a lot of stuffing around. Note the * - subject to approval though.

    Works out to 120k a year. (100k x 20 years plus 20k pa for the subscription fee).

    If you were a mad golfer and utilised the 24 games it works out to 5k a game. Not bad since it includes access to a lot of courses you wouldn't be able to play unless you were a member, or knew one (I guess).

    The discounts at shops and hotels we all know won't be real discounts.
