I tend to agree but i have friends in places like Sisakes and people are drinking at bars and restaurants. I think it depends on where you are. BKK is too visible even with the charity donations to the RTP to allow people to drink. Although a place like Kao San Rd should be able to open since it is widely know that covid transmission outdoors is practically impossible..
Very true - but Elon has no choice really, because the dictatorship will not allow him to sell into China (and not support sales other countries in the Region) unless he agrees to make the cars in China - otherwise massive import taxes are applied. Dont get me started how the CCP has manipulated things as a 'third world country' to gain exemptions and allowances for doing things that would have any 'first world' country in front of the WTA with the threat of expulsion. And their exemptions gained from climate change actions are just plain evil.
It has been my opinion for a long time that if China is allowed to succeed, they will cause everyone else they touch to fail. Just look at Thailand for one example - if you dont think the Chinese came into Thailand after WW2 and took over business, military and government, then you are ignorant. It is what they do and have been doing for thousands of years - they slowly slowly take over - how do people think they got so big and stayed so big??
The Han Dynasty (200 AD) was basically China today, and it was as big as they are now, way back when the Roman Empire was at its peak. Becausae of economic stagnation and what was happening in USSR, the CCP saw the natural advantages that the Chinese people had, and they have become the world's first Empire that has grown massively, without conquering any other's lands. They long ago realised the downsides of land conquests - the CCP are now 'conquering' through Trade and Finance all built on Economic Growth provided/supported by the fools in the West. We are such fools and we had such a fear of war (after WW2 and Vietnam and Korea and Iraq and Afghanistan etc etc etc), that we allowed the CCP to actually make their own lands in the oceans and then claim all the surrounding oceans as part of their country.
Over 30 years ago I was one of the very few arguing against allowing China inside the 'chicken house', and most of what I predicted has happened - and we are still giving them 'incentives'. I truly hope and desire that they have a massive catastrophic economic collapse and end up breaking apart like USSR. I do fear that they will do what Japan did when that happened to them in 1930s/40s, but unlike so many people who are willing to give more and more to avoid that, I say bring it on and lets see who comes out on top.
3 million doses of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine donated by Poland continue to be held up amid arguments between the recipient, Thammasat University, and the Thai government. Nation Thailand reports that the Foreign Affairs Ministry has refused to help import the doses as the transaction is not state-to-state. In a letter to the TU rector, the ministry says the university must discuss the matter with Thailand’s Public Health Ministry and the vaccine manufacturer. The chairman of the Thonburi Healthcare Group, Boon Vanasin, had previously confirmed that Poland was donating 3 million Moderna doses to Thammasat Chaloem Phrakiat Hospital. The shipment […]

That’s only in selected states mostly run by leftists. There is no reason why Thailand cannot open outdoor bars and such as it has been known for quite sometime that catching covid outdoors is virtually impossible, keep the indoor bars and clubs closed for a bit longer. No reason Kao San road can’t be opened up
