And only Batman was there to stop the city from descending into anarchy and destruction.

    HK is nowhere as crime-ridden as the fictional Gotham of course, but the way those with power now associate with shady characters is strangely very similar to the way Gotham is governed. And of course, there is no Batman to save us, only HK people can save themselves.
    Ironically, Batman is not someone to look up to in this situation because he is totally in favour of illegally extraditing people out of Hong Kong.

    How do we know this? We know because he's done it himself, in Hong Kong:

    It's a great movie scene, though :-)

    Thanks. Looking like a big que for the ferry today then.
    Let's Not pretend these stations are being closed for any other reason than to ferry PoPo around.

    Methinks the main reason is to make it difficult for people to get to the protest, thus, discouraging them from taking part, and ‘assist’ the Popo when they ‘disperse’ crowds, by making sure they have nowhere to disperse to. Personal transport for Popo is an added ‘benefit’. A very twisted logic that has been proven not to work.

    No, you're wrong. Obviously it's because they need to repair those two specific stations at that specific time on a Sunday. It's just a coincidence that there happens to be a march nearby.

    Come on guys, the MTR is just trying their best to fix things to serve the public...

    It's not like TST is difficult to get to with other modes of transport. Fucking idiots. Jordan MTR is a ten minute walk away...

    Will enjoy my trips on the Star Ferry I guess.
