Inter-province travel was not introduced till well into the Covid situation started and people were still doing it.

 

It's got nothing to do with workers rights, to make it easier for you to realise how stupid it is i'll use this as an example:

 

Suppose Covid happed Nov / Dec / Jan, do you think there would be any western ( or other ) country in the world that would have Xmas and NY in June or July? That's how stupid it is!

Moving the Thai new year from April to July is stupid ?

 

Western countries would have most likely cancelled public holidays than postponed but alas they did not so your point has no relevance.

This is ludicrous. It's all about money, nothing else matters. This will only invite more road deaths and domestic violence. OK...who gives a damn, as long as it's time off and getting wasted... splash, splash. Candy for the masses...

So schools have been shut down for basically 3 months, then they open for 3 days and get shutdown again for another week. Plus many workers will be unpaid for this amazing holiday, after being on food handouts for 2-3 months.

Plus of course the hundreds that will die on the roads.. some of these politicans are absolute morons.

What do you mean 'some'!!!!!.....😉😉😉😉😷😷😷😷

Bars closed again?

Bars will not be open.  Remember Bars are to stay closed until after schools start this means the earliest a bar can be open is app 15 july

The Minister for Culture appears to be the former Mayor of Pattaya, and his brother is the current Mayor of Pattaya. What a coincidence ! Pattaya has the longest, wettest, biggest money-making 10 long days of idiotic behaviour in Thailand.  Whatever dates the Minister proposes for Songkran, it will likely be an excuse for a couple of weeks of water - throwing, etc, and generating as much income as possible for Pattaya. I doubt that this has anything to do with culture.

Open schools for three days after months of being closed and then close them again???

 

Beyond stupid. We just can't get a break from the mind numbing idiocy that pervades this government.

No I get 5 weeks annual leave so am not really fussed either way but with temporary closures many no longer have any annual leave left (those that still have jobs) so for them to go visit their sons, daughter,mothers and fathers they will need to take time off work unpaid.... surely covid has penalised them enough already so why rub salt into the wounds ?

 

 

yep, it's the equivalent of westerners being told they're not allowed to celebrate Christmas and New Year, with the added bonus of being made to work and have alcohol banned

 

it's not just about a 'water fight' too
