@Nasa 12,  You are right. Thai Government is even more slow working, but who cares after already 6 years waiting for reforms? Schools? Well, Thai education levels are going down on international education scales, a few more day or less, who cares? Less educated people are more easy to control by the elite, and can be paid lesser.

Well well these days off are only for government employees that the taxpayers in LOS pay for. And children los more school days.
