    That's the trouble with Thailand. You can't drink alcohol and have an erection.

    It really is pathetic. Really pathetic. I have had a nice drink in the mia noi's really Thai area (On Nut), all with Thais, then the same in my area (Ratchada). Inbetween the two, the tourist areas, where none of the clientele are entitled to vote, are closed tightly shut.

    As usual, the Thais can roll around as drunk as they like prior to casting their vote. Expat foreigers and tourists alike are disenfranschised and sober.

    ^ I get the impression in Bangkok they do it specifically to annoy the foreigners and foreign run establishments. All the Thai places up near me in the 'burbs are blatantly open as usual.

    I'm having pizza and a nice bottle of Penfold's Chardonnay while watching the fitba though.

    You can imagine tourists arriving in BKK for the first night of their holiday and finding bars closed..... must be disappointing.

    and then them thinking....... '' Closing the bars during elections.... not such a bad idea really. If they had been closed in USA/UK/AUS then maybe we wouldn't have chosen Bush/Brown/Howard''

    Must have been pissed to elect any of that lot!!

    ^ minor point - Brown wasn't elected!

    I dare say Wee Johnny Howard was better than this muppet the Aussies have in charge now though.

    Other than that, carry on.

    I am equally sure that the tourists, finding that the first two nights in Bangkok entailed closed bars and non-alcoholic restaurants and given the relative high cost of visiting here now, they would be pretty pissed off and not give a flying fuck about local elections.

    I went to Timba's, had a nice meal washed down with 3 or 4 beers and then on to my Thai local for some more drinks, business as usual as far as I was concerned.

    Just arrived back home after being out with a few of the lads from the Pattaya Live forum on the darkside in Pattaya.

    Called Buriramboy just to cheer him up as well being the nice chappy I am!

    Nope, but I bet they will tonight. It's kinda normal that after being allowed to stay open on a night last night that the bib will be looking for a thank you drink.
