Thailand going mental regarding alcohol

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Yet another random crackdown announcement, followed by an immediate back-down. Shocking. The junta's policies should be written on an Etch-a-Sketch.

And how do you still have internet access? I thought every Thai citizen was given internet login credentials that only allowed one session at the same time.

I assumed Thailand would have totally changed by now with no Farangs working illegally, the internet on lockdown and alcohol banned after midnight.

PHUKET: The Phuket Provincial Health Office (PPHO) has no plans to ramp up enforcement of existing laws regulating the promotion of alcohol, despite reports stating otherwise, the Phuket Gazette was told today. -
“We have received no new instructions about this, and we have no plans to launch any campaigns to specifically crack down on the promotion of alcohol,” she told the Gazette.

Yeah. And I'm wondering how a statement from one province is relevant to a statement by another significantly enough to declare it "dust in the wind"?

the OP said the guy said it would be COUNTRY WIDE.
Shouldn't such stuff be coming out of Bangkok? Maybe this is how they send up trial balloons?
