Pattaya: Thou shalt not drink! Election booze ban in force today as cops threaten jail

Police in Pattaya were out on the streets of the resort yesterday warning people that there will be an election alcohol ban this weekend and next.

 

The Pattaya News published a picture of a smiling Lt-Col Korn Somkhane, a deputy in Pattaya standing in for the police chief. He said he was determined to enforce the ban that is to be observed nationwide. 

 

No selling of alcohol will be allowed from 6 pm today until 6 pm tomorrow as Sunday is the pre-voting day when polling stations are open for people unable to vote in their home provinces. 

 

Next weekend will be the same - a ban is in place for 6pm to 6pm 23rd to 24th March. 

 

The 24th of March is election day. 

 

Violators face 10,000 baht fines and six months in jail if caught selling alcohol.

If this date were to be our last, I'd never sit down this glass
It'd take all the booze in the world to forget you
You've left my heart a vacant lot, I'll fill it with another shot
And yes I guess they oughta name a drink after you

( John Prine )


Here's the reason why the cop is smiling: he narrowly escaped to be named Bloody Mary

I always wondered why is the booze ban is all about? does the one who want to drink will not go and get a drink in many of the place that don't really care for the ban? would it really make a difference to how one's vote if he had a wee drink before? only in this country the impose this silly restrictions on polling day...

In the US they can't sell alcohol on voting day while the polls are open usually between 7 am and 7 PM
