Here in Australia we have a lot of law makers passing a lot of idiotic laws, but in Thailand, legislation proposed by group of retired and active generals has topped the list.
The Flag Bill was introduced last week with the aim of stopping Thailand when the national anthem plays. The Bill’s supporters think cars should stop nationwide when the anthem is played during the raising and lowering of the flag.
The old generals think this will help preserve tradition and instill patriotism in Thais!
At least the anthem only lasts for about a minute and as one Thai general said “They already spend more time in traffic jams anyway“.
