British Expat PAUL ANTHONY "TONY" ATHERTON (Former Manager of Shanghai Bar in Phnom Penh) Dies at Age 73

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I guess the original Facebook post by Shanghai Bar got his name wrong.
No it didn't. It identified him as "Mr. Tony."

I'm just needling GONK. I was curious if he'd say "I started a thread saying Tony Byrne died because someone started a thread on Khmer440 mistakenly saying Tony Byrne died." I think he's too proud to admit that though.

No, I meant that the still living Tony Byrne is 66. Fuck, this is confusing.
And the "Tony" I am referring to to that just died is not his real name anyway :?
Really? Why wasn't he using his real name?
See crook!!!

He was using his abbreviated middle name. Paul Anthony Atherton.

Haha, you are correct! I was also tipped off by the bald guy claiming to be SPECIAL FORCES from your post over there too. I thought it deserved a much larger audience than Khmer440 attracts these days, so I started it here, that's all (although I used a different source than you). :thumb:

Nobody mentioned Tony's last name, so a lot of guesswork involved this time. If I had to guess, he died outside of Cambodia, so public info about his death might be limited.

So is the Tony who features in the photos fucking dead or not? This is like Roddy who died at least twice.

Well I'm fucking lost, I don't know who's dead and who's alive, who's English, who's Australian and who was hard and who wasn't or even if that is the correct tense to use about the hard or otherwise live or dead people now. :shrug:
