Badly Burnt Brit with Memory Problems Dropped Off at Calmette Hospital & Needs Your Help

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

And regards the brit thing. I paid my dues for over 30 years. Never claimed a penny from the government.paid my taxes and stamps from the day i was legally due to do.so yes if i wanna think shit about my home country i will do.
Sorry i didnt use quote but am responding to you weiner.
There are three Nicky Smiths on Facebook, all women and from the looks of their pages all fake, no John Duffys. If you feel that pissing on the UK embassy makes you feel better, knock yourself out. You definitely are entitled to your opinions and if yelling at clouds makes your day brighter, please be my guest. I can only go by what was posted about the guy, like you I have never met him and like you until you found multiple posts on various facebook pages the only thing I knew is he is a druggie and aggressive.

I guess if you are allowed to think shit about your home country, I should be able to think shit about meth heads, don t you think that's fair? Glad you have been vindicated, it would have been horrible you boxing with shadows all day for nothing. And the name is Anthony's Weiner, not weiner, I would hate to think you are subtly trying to call me a dick.

It should be important for a "first-world" country - even if it's just for public image and relations - that they look after their own people, and that they don't leave third world countries the responsibility of looking after their down and out citizens.
I cringe when I see first world beggars here in Cambodia. It's upside down. Cambodian beggars would never be accepted into Europe or USA or Australia.
The UK accepts any cunt and treats them better than the natives born and bred there
I don't see what this has to do with British citizens who are begging and sleeping on the streets of Phnom Penh. Even if they have no money and no job, they can still come to this country with no questions asked. If you take a Cambodian to the UK, then you will see the different treatment between UK and Cambodia for incoming foreigners.
The UK might accept any "ct", according to you, but try taking your Cambodian partner to the UK and see if they accept her or him, no questions asked, just like you are accepted in Cambodia with a VOA.

What the fuck kind of garbled nonsense was that I just forced myself to read? Any foreigners who are that retarded should just be deported unless they can pay a big annual fine.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I might add as reported on multiple fb pages
It's not about deserving or if he's a good guy. It's not the embassy's job to breastfeed people. The British Foreign Office collects intel on all countries and shares the pertinent info with everyone. Their website is an excellent resource, giving up to date country-specific info on all countries. It will advise you on where to go, where not to go, what dangers are there and what to look out for (for every country on earth). It will also advise you to make sure you are insured etc.

There is a limited amount of consular help they are mandated to give. They certainly don't look after people's personal problems, pay medical bills etc.

Soriya - you are barking up the wrong tree. It’s not the British Consulate you should be harassing. Better to go to HE’s house, kick down his door and demand that the Cambodian government take care of the burned up Brit because it’s the morally responsible thing to do. And at the same time, advocate that the Kingdom of Wonder should be taking care of all the other foreigners down on their luck.

I suspect those who are making judgements on the character of this man, however well founded are those least likely to offer assistance to anyone, deserving or not.

There is Nicholas Smith from Glasgow who bears a striking resemblance to the man who was badly burnt. His posts are about Glasgow Celtic, pleas for help for other parties, having mental health issues and Buckfast fortified wine. I am not at all surprised that someone suffering from mental health issues and more than likely alcohol abuse issues has run into problems in the KOW. From the time I spent in Glasgow including attending a Rangers v Celtics match when there were terraces, not seats, an inebriated Celtic fan can be quite aggressive. The young man has heart and shows true empathy for others. From his posts, it is also very apparent that his mental health issues are not new and Buckfast is not the answer to his problems. I am not at all surprised that he has friends that are concerned for his health and safety and am of the opinion that his return to Glasgow where medical and psychiatric care are state-funded is certainly in his best interest. Cambodia was likely a poor choice of destinations for his travels and I am glad that he no longer faces his overwhelming problems alone.
