<deleted> me, for once I agree with him. I best go see a doctor tomorrow.

Sometimes a flash of lucidity ...

Even a broken clock is correct 2 x per day 🤥

I too agree.  While I think that had things been more “normal” an extension would have produced more economic stimulus than not... but given the current climate - both health related and overall negative economic sentiment- I agree that adding more days would probably not produce the intended effect of higher economic stimulus net the of the loss of productivity due to the additional days off.

It seems they are grasping at straws.

Why can't they see that it is

  • The Thai economy - falsely inflated
  • Thai Baht - much too high
  • Failing Tourism and appealing to wrong areas [China & India]

Other neighbours are getting more than they used to of foreign tourists.

If we don’t get any serious rain before Songkran, what’s the betting it either gets cancelled or severe water restrictions placed on it. Definitely no chance of an extension

Can't see it getting cancelled - there would be riots!

How about just banning the whole stupid thing.

We have had no water for 3 weeks but the morons will still be chucking it around as usual.

I see you’ve adjusted well to the Thai culture.....555
