    Excusing the slightly taboo topic for some, the amount of legal advice needed for such innovation is breathtaking

    low threshold, with applicants required to have a physical office in Hong Kong, with a minimum of two full-time PR professionals who have at least one year’s experience in the communications field

    Toeing the CCP party line, yup, "great" PR to the world. Not that they have much choice I suppose, but you don't need PR consultants to tell you that spewing out word-for-word what Beijing ordered them to say usually dosen't look good reputation-wise.

    Coordination between government departments (and or private companies)

    Yes, this is not a new problem, but this one takes the cake.


    Out of sheer genius, firstly the next bus screen is facing away from the bus shelter. KMB’s displays are much better in that regard.
    Secondly, it’s facing directly into one of those no parking/stopping signs.

    What other examples of this sort of uncoordination can you find in HK?

    "Every so often someone will make this a topic – whether there is separation of powers in Hong Kong, they will cite some well known persons or judges. But there is nothing clearer than the Basic Law[emphasis added] ," says Carrie Lam
    Carrie Lam declares expropriation is part of the Basic Law. (The logical conclusion from the word of the Party is the law, made more explicit than ever. Basically the death of rule of law and replacement with rule by “law”, only openly.)
