A Thai Jotman Reader's Response to the Previous Post

Referring to last post, a Thai Jotman reader points out an error:
Thank you for writing sth. on the new Thai Constitution and the polling. But, the polling date is supposed to be on Aug 19th not Aug 20th. Aug 20 is declared a public holiday so that all eligible voters would be able to go to vote esp. people who live in the provinces. They wouldn't have an excuse of not going to vote, because they have to work on Monday.
And the reader added these words of criticism:
You were not being fair to the Thai government. The Thai Government has been very open-minded when it comes to expressing one's point of view as evidenced in a number of rallies that can still be staged in Sanam Luang areas.
