Phiphat thinks that the move will stimulate the economy by 25%. Drama-Addict thinks it will just lead to more fighting and crime over a longer period at night. They said that if the minister presses on with his plan then he should help the doctor’s and nurses in ER that will have to deal with the consequences. They published a grisly picture of an operating theater covered in blood. Backing up their view they said that 43.36% of the Thai public out of 1,257 asked in a Nida Poll rejected the changes. People cited annoyance for people living near pubs and clubs, more crime and no economic benefit. They said that the minister should think of something else to stimulate the economy and tourist sector.
