Look out if you've thought you have a secure lease... Phuket courts void secured leases used by foreigners. PHUKET — In a shock decision by the Phuket Civil Court, backed by the Region 8 Appellate Court, it has been ruled that so-called “secured leases” offered by some real estate developers to allow foreigners to secure a cast-iron 90-year lease are not valid.
That was Kriss Akabusi. The interview went like this: "So, Kriss, what does this mean to you as an African-American?" "I'm not American, I'm British" "Yes, but as a British African-American ..." "I'm not African. I'm not American. I'm British." The American interviewer was so entrenched in his PC nomenclature he couldn't fathom the stupidity of his question.
I can't fathom that one either. I can only imagine it has to do with not really wanting to be American. It reminds me of a black British athlete who was being interviewed onAmerican TV. The interviewer described him as African-American to which the athlete replied "I'm English mate".
