@Taswegian, Guess it is not fair to suggest about lelecuneo.  It was the Patong 'president' of PEB who did open up all this. There was in PN a article about it, on which the angry Patong RTP reacted and still do once in a while., exposed as they are regularly in not obeying the law in their work.

All that Officialdom energy spend on anti alcohol fascination/hobby under cover of Covid-19 fighting, it's to laugh about. Can't be taken serious. What has to be taken serious is the disastrous effects this madness has on bar/restaurant business. Lost incomes, jobs, closures. And for what? Asked a Thai Official, the answer was: "I don't know". Amazing Thailand
