    I'm way out in Lai chi kok, pretty deep into kowloon on the red line. And all day there have been two mtr Yello uniform staff standing a few feet inside the mtr entrance (where u swipe your octopus).

    They are watching everyone entering.

    It's really weird, never seen this before in the Last 9 years at this station.

    There have been calls for people to disrupt the MTR system. Some people have spotted a bigger than usual police and MTR staff presence at Kowloon Tong & Admiralty today. It's been like this for the last week or so at my station to be honest.

    I get Admiralty for sure, but just thought it was weird, 7 stops before Admiralty they would be beefing up security. Kowloon tong is pretty far inland too.

    From Tim Hamlett's latest HKFP opinion piece:

    Ronny Tong ... suggested that anyone who turned up at a protest wearing a hard hat could be charged with intention to riot.
    Proper rags like The Onion or The Spoof pale in comparison with Hong Kong's reality!

    Tsang, who was seen as a hardliner during the pro-democracy Occupy protests in 2014, will become corporate strategy chief for Chen Hsong Group, to a government circular issued on Thursday.
    Chen Hsong Group, a Bermuda-incorporated manufacturer of injection moulding machines, was founded by the father of pro-establishment lawmaker Ann Chiang Lai-wan. Chiang’s sister Chiang Lai-yuen, chief executive of the group, headhunted Tsang for the post.

    Former police commissioner Andy Tsang has been tapped for the role of vice-chairman of the National Narcotics Control Commission (NNCC) – a rare instance of a Hongkonger appointed to a top governmental post in China.
    Tsang, who served as police chief during the 2014 pro-democracy Umbrella Movement, met with China’s deputy minister for public security Wang Xiaohong on Monday.
