(Re: Thoughts on returning to Thailand, Friday, 20 July 2012) 20 July, JCB commented on receiving free medical treatment. In the western countries, they call it ‘’welfare’’. In Italy, my country, we know about it very well, in fact we give it free to everybody together with their family who comes to visit us from everywhere. Of course somebody has to pay: we do. One of the reasons why we are near bankruptcy.
