I await further states of denial with interest, not to mention the odd trace of satirical amusement. The report that the opposition want the race to go ahead - millions of people watching TV being the perfect opportunity to demonstrate - is almost charming in its utter naivety. Aren't finance folk just the cutest little things?

They were talking about 100 000 travelling race fans for this event. I don't know what they are smoking. Nobody in there right mind would plan a trip to this GP with all of the uncertainty and safety concerns about. If it does happen the stands are going to be empty anyway.

Wait a minute. A couple days ago, some human rights group was saying that the protestors are peaceful, yet now they threaten a "day of rage"?!

I reckon these human rights groups are just making it up as they go along, depending on what the flavour of the month is.
