    It sounds like a good idea and it is difficult to see any rationale objections. Except the word required. Do 83% really think adults should be told what to wear?

    Cooler dress could be mandated, but allowing people to decide what to wear for themselves? This will never happen. We can not allow people to start thinking for themselves. The result would be utter chaos; and a huge reduction in under the table money.

    We can never allow them to wear what they want. Preposterous.

    Why don't we adopt British Tropical Dress Code, you know, short pant with short sleeve shirt? If it worked for them in places like India, and Malaysia, then before the invention of air-conditioning, it should work for us now.

    If it improves productivity then by all means YES

    @D#2 You need 25 degrees to be comfortable? If so you really need to thing about shedding 20 or 30 kilo's. Geez the wussies around here!

    I think the cute females should be forced to wear a bikini. LOL Stupid pole. I think BP is losing it's connection with reality lately with the string of senseless time wasting opinion poles. Were their pole staff recently let go by ABAC?

    Should they be "required" to? No. Just change the temp to a higher setting and let them decide for themselves. But, when someone does not wear the 'suit' they shouldn't be punished either.

    I doubt it will ever happen. Air con is just another way for both government buildings and private companies to show off. And we all know Asians like to show off...

    How about setting the air con to the off position and the governemnt start thinking of ways to cool down the country besides buying energy from Burma .

    Unfortunately the thermostat is ofteh found in the air-conditioner's machine room where it never gets cold while the people in the air-conditioned room are freezing. This way entire buildings are turned into cooling towers.
