Great idea. The first time that I agree with him since he wanted to extend the opening times of the awful night life.

Wasn't there a similar scheme in some country years ago where they planned to change from driving on the right hand side of the road to the left hand side.

 

The scheme was to be introduced gradually over a period of 6 months.

I recall reading that in an issue of Car & Driver, waaay back in mid 60's, just to back you up

With factories, offices and other businesses closed for the last few weeks I would think people should get back to work and make some money for the economy rather than have more holidays. Maybe I am just a Grumpy Old Man ....

Actually the vast majority of industry was never closed, what was being reported was very different to reality.

 

Whilst i agree the proposed July 5th date is pretty daft coming 4 days after the schools are hopefully opening, i do hope the Songkran 3 day holiday happens later in the year.

 

Most Thai employees do not receive many days annual leave and the 3 day break gives the best chance of actually having a week off work. I know our staff who have worked non-stop this year certainly deserve it.

Unless they select Wednesdays, long weekends will always cause the crowds to move and mingle.
