325: ‘Heil, mein Führer! Mr. Leung Chun – ying’

‘Heil, mein Führer! Mr Leung Chun – ying’

325.  The play has come to the final moment.  ‘Heil, mein Führer! Let’s give a round of warm applause to our new CE, Mr. Leung Chun – ying’

‘There would be one day [when] Hong Kong would eventually need to dispatch the anti-riot police and utilise tear gas to handle protests’ said CY – an accusation made by Henry Tang in his final rebound against his arch – rival.

Can we trust Henry? My answer is Why not? He has come to his own political suicide anyway. There’s no reason not to trust a dying person.

This blatant tramping on freedom of speech by CY is not so surprising, after we have read Mdm. Ip’s article, saying CY has always been a underground communist.

Indeed PRC has long known how to play the filtration game. CY as underground communist can’t be something too far – fetched to believe in when other scholars already explored how PRC set up parallel organisations to plant their own support ( in Associations in a Bind by Jonathan Unger and Anita Chan).

Undoubtedly, PRC also masters the Shakespearian play within a play in writing the drama script for Hong Kong. Right of abode cases, Article 23, double – non issues and now CE election are all mini – plays within the grand play – the ultimate death of One Country Two Systems.

Shortly gaining his chancellorship on January 30 1933, Hitler unleashed his Night of Long Knives – purging the internal dissidents and killing off other political opponents.

CY promised to pursue the matter about accusation made by Henry Tang further after the election is over.

The only vain hope I am holding now is a deus ex machina – a totally unexpected event – that will produce enough blank votes  to make an abortive election. ABC. Anything But CY.

This hope is, however, hopeless. The red curtain will be drawn, with blood seeping beneath it. HK is dead.

‘Voting not required’

‘Voting not required’
The Hong Kong media keeps reporting on a CE election that 99.9826% of the Hong Kong population can not vote (alternatively, an election that only 0.0174% of the population can vote),  while the election by universal suffrage in District Council receives scant attention.When you receive a post saying ‘voting not required’, you’ll understand why the media has done so. While the CE election is choosing the best of the worst, still, some gossip here or there (funny claim that CY 梁振英 beat his wife or 感情缺失 by Henry Tong – what do you mean?)  provide topics during tea – time.

For DC election, what do you have? Well, talking how many candidates get elected automatically. 76, most of them either DAB/LP or other covert pro – China independents/parties. The end of topic.

Ma Ngok said politics in districts become mere ‘interest dispensation’ (here). By this, he means the ‘snake banquet’ or the ‘seafood trip’ offered by the DAB.

From my experiences working at DAB last summer, it works like this: Having finished the seafood banquet lunch for 50 dollars (HK), the people, old or middled aged, were taken by travel bus straight to the Victoria Park – to support the Constitutional Reform Package in 2010.

Most ‘iron votes’ for DAB come from places where immigrants newly arrive. DAB works hard to attract their votes by organizing activities and improving the districts (well, as minor as removing two dogs on the streets – hugely celebrated in banners on the road) through the generous unknown fund of 4 million dollar. But do not forget they are also the most vocal against new immigrants from China in 1999,  against Chinese pregnant women and now against Filipino.

Treasure the vote in your hand. NPCSC’s decision in 2007 held Hong Kong ‘s CE election in 2017 may be implemented by universal suffrage. I hope no one will ever receive a ‘voting not required’ post at that time.
