Give an inch and they take the country

On Wednesday I took the Skytrain to MBK, where protesters have set up tents.

The mob, as usual for this time of year, was scattered throughout the area spreading love and good will. I tried to move from one side of the Skytrain bridge to the other, and was told by a mobster, "We have closed this and you cannot go." Nothing chafes my hide more than being told I can't go somewhere that is normally open to everyone. It is my unprofessional opinion that, once an area is surrendered to the opposition, the opposition will only increase its demands.
