Thank you K.Night Owl and K.#54 for the translation. I appreciated your inputs. You're both right, although K#54 got it more to the point I tried to put across. But in general, the first translated version alone would make people understand how well I was treated in UK.
ผมเชื่อว่าคุณ genf จะไม่มีทางได้ทำงานในงานที่เกี่ยวกับความมั่นคงของประเทศอังกฤษแน่ๆ
To be employed in a job relating to National security, one has to be her citizen and has to sign a piece of paper to accept the official secret acts. I am not sure exactly what this entails. I was never chosen to work in any secret electronic projects due to my status but it did not bother me in a slightest. I never wanted to work under a very strict rules anyway. I would never be allowed to discuss with anyone outside the project regarding the matter. Where was the fun in that?
ถึงแม้จะทำงานในภาคเอกชน หรือพลเรือน การที่จะไต่เต้าเข้าไปดำรงตำแหน่งในระดับสูงๆ ก็ยากกว่าคนอังกฤษหรือฝรั่งผิวขาวมากเช่นกัน
From my experience, working in the environment I was in. I could tell you that if I was really smart I could easily get to a reasonably high position within the company. The company at that time had over 1,000 employees, I was the first foreign employee to be employed, was trained to replace a local engineer who was leaving, in her 50 years long history. I was chosen over many people who had higher degrees than I was, that was fortunately due to my direct experience in other things relating to the job. Working in UK, paper qualification alone no matter how high without proper experiences does not always guarantee a job. It is ironic, if one does not have a job how can one get an experience. That was how things worked when I was there. I did not have to pay (money, favours or otherwise) my ways into a job. I took orders only from one person and one person only, my boss's boss couldn't even give me an order without asking him first. As a matter of fact my position in the organisation was high enough considering as the only foreigner.
I do not imply that life in UK was absolutely perfect. I am trying to point out to you all that she, in many ways has better ways to deal with people (citizen and foreigner alike) than what Thai government is doing. We should try to learn and take the good points from her instead.
I spent half of my life in Thailand and other half in UK, they are both equally my homes. I could see good and bad points of both better than a lot of people I just want what is best for Thailand and Thai people, men and women (children too, of course).
I do strongly believe if the government try hard enough to do some more studies on the subject under discussion here instead of jumping to the conclusion that all foreigners are trying to take over our country, it would be more beneficial to the country and everyone concerned in the long run.
Without too many corrupted officials and a lot of red tapes would make things a lot easier to manage also.
I am sorry I can't express myself properly, not that because I have to write in English, I couldn't even put it into Thai. I am an engineer by trade and have no love for politics. I don't feel comfortable discussing any matters I know nothing about.
I came here only to ask for equal rights for people who happen to have the same sex as my mother. Though, I am not in the kind of predicament they are facing. It doesn't mean that I should keep my mouth shut for things which don't concern me. They need all the helps they can get. Who will support them if we don't?. A lot of you guys couldn't care less what is happening because you are not in that kind of dilemma.
I am so surprised that not many people speaking out, with all those half Thai stars and celebrities in the country. What are they doing sitting on their laurels?
