If you ask me, the governor wants us to get the hell out of Bangkok now!
If it's any consolation, Premier Yingluck has just come out to say that there is a 50:50 chance of the whole of inner Bangkok being flooded although Suvarnbhumi International Airport will be protected at all cost.
Bangkok Governor M.R. Sukhumbhand's statements aren't all that different. He said he approved of the Cabinet's decision to make Oct 27-31 public holidays because Bangkok's population is around 10 million and this weekend will be quite "problematic."
"So, my advice is that Bangkokians should take advantage of the holidays to leave Bangkok for the provinces," he said last night.
In everyday language, if friends ask you what the governor meant, you could say:
"He wants us to get the hell out of Bangkok..."
