    Rather emotional, after living here for over 2 decades.

    Another announcement at 9pm and we know what that will be about - succession.

    It's official

    The Nation October 13, 2016 7:08 pm
    The PM’s Office announced that government agencies nationwide were ordered to fly half-mast for 30 days following His Majesty the King’s death.

    The statement said government officials will wear black in mourning for a year.

    Private firms are free to use their own judgment, the statement added
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    closing entertainment venues, bars and other emporiums of jollity for a month will bankrupt some owners and staff and hit tourism hard.

    i cant see it being implemented too strictly after a week or so.

    I can't see it being implemented for a day in the village I live in. Some police own venues, and most like a drink, so everything will be normal in my opinion.

    Yup, folk here watched the news, expressed their sadness and dismay then just got on with it. Drinking, eating and whatever.
    they were all bored stiff with the TV within 30 minutes. Bless 'em.

    Even for this exceptional occasion, such restrictions and observances won't be looked upon/taken universally...

    And if all go along uniformly - be a week, tops.

    Messages of condolence for His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand
    thread.
