there is very little traffic 30  minutes past the deadline, but there still is traffic. And none are in the exempt category.

How do you know that "none" are in that category?

Maybe none was a bit harsh. 🙂

Hope it will soon escalate to a 24h lockdown. 22:00-04:00 is, IMHO, not only useless, but it will create more traffic as everybody is going to be bulging in to make the curfew hours. Just as idiotic as 90% of this dumb, psychotic wannabe govt. 

So, seeing as it would be totally impossible for food supplies to be restocked in the event of a 24-hour lockdown being imposed, the inference which I have drawn from your harebrained suggestion is that mass fatalities caused by widespread starvation would be more than acceptable collateral damage in your eyes.

Well , good not living in the Philippines. Duterte said to police shoot to kill if anyone is out in curfew.

I bet the coppers have $$$ signs floating in their eyes as they sleep. Finally what they've been dreaming of for years, a true Police State, has come true. How long before the army start to 'drop in' on local police stations to enquire about their cut of the proceeds, then things start to get tense and nasty between the two rival 'gangs'? My guess is it won't be too long before the first 'moved to an inactive post' articles start to pop up concerning the more belligerent top cops...Just make sure you're well stocked up, I hope you all have access to a nice place, to get some air. My maid tells me the roof of my condo has been a Godsend to her in recent weeks. She likes a drink, and her pal who she shares the work and pay with, both have a quiet, discreet, drink up there most evenings in isolation, and safety. 

You seem to believe that this is the first curfew to occur in recent history, when in fact curfews have not been uncommon in the last 20 years.

 

As for your insinuation that this will devolve into a turf war, it is as cynical as it is naive.

Yeah, out of fear by the establishment and as a display/exercise of their power. What is the real value of this curfew other than a draconian dictate that has revenue-making potential for the establishment. I guess it could be to protect the tourists from getting the virus from a hooker and having a bad experience in Bangkok (wouldn't want that, would we?). :stoner:

You act as if all governments have dealt with this flawlessly.

 

Personally, I dont see many who havent misstepped throughout this whole situation.

I expect that already, foreigners probably Face a bigger fine. I just stay in my room. Stay safe, everyone.

At 10.30 pm last night I took off all my clothes and ran around the house 3 times, never got caught..... The wife wasnt happy though.

Why? Was it such a shock for her to see you in your birthday suit?

Revenue making potential for the establishment.

 

How exactly does ecomomic shutdown serve their aims again?

 

I cant seem to remember.

 

Its confusing, because when everything remained open longer than some felt it should, it was because "the establishment" valued profit over people.

 

Now it seems that "the establishment" has imposed the curfew because they seek "revenue-making potential".

 

So which is it?

As of Friday night, people are prohibited from stepping out of their homes from 10pm to 4am, he said, adding that violators will be punished without an exceptions.

Really? Stepping out of your front door onto your property is now a crime at 10:01 PM?

Opening my condo door and walking the trash to the trash room is now a crime after 10PM?

How about taking the elevator to the ground floor and standing in the parking lot of my condo after 10PM?  

Walking for exercise at 11PM on my condo grounds is also a crime after 10PM?

 

Who has the text of this new decree?

Seems a slight exaggeration and over reaction.

 

The general idea is to "stay home", I doubt that anyone would say anything if you stayed withing the grounds of your "home". That is to say, not out and about wandering the streets etc away from home
