    foreigners are "flawed by nature" say DAB lawmaker Christopher Chung

    Australian Michael Lynch is the CEO of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority. He joined the Authority in July 2011.

    Christopher Chung of the DAB said foreigners should not have been appointed to manage the project because they were "flawed by nature" and they "knew nothing about Hong Kong".

    It seems they are using that as some type of excuse for the soaring HK$ 21.5 billion ++ budget to develop the West Kowloon Cultural District.

    Does this piece of servile trash know that Hong Kong was built and continues to be built/managed by foreigners? Another delusional Mongol blaming the white man for his failures. Spare me.

    I know exactly why WKT is in delay and it’s nothing to do with the senior management.

    I am so happy that Christopher Chung finally tells me what is fundamentally wrong with me. Of course after 20+ years of living in Hong Kong I know absolutely nothing about it... Now that I know that I am "flawed by nature", I can try to do something about it... like kicking the aforementioned person's butt.

    In Hong Kong, we don't have the occasional white elephant. We have a government that brings on a fucking big parade of them.

    Thank you captain pedantic!

    It's a fact that of the expat senior management here in HK, the vast majority are white.
    I do presentations at a very senior level and its white faces all around the boardroom table, if there are locals or other races they are few and far between.

    Michael Lynch is white, I’ve met the man a few times and he is an absolute professional who has to put up with HK incompetence like rest of us “flawed foreigners” earning 6 figures per month.
