    Leading candidates to succeed Ms Lam include Norman Chan, former head of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, and Henry Tang, son of a textile magnate who has also served as the territory’s financial secretary and chief secretary for administration, the people added.

    I would strongly suspect that anyone considered safe enough to be briefed by Beijing would know to keep their gob shut or suffer the consequences. I call BS.

    I like Tom Mitchell - he is one of their best investigative reporters.

    I think the story is credible - at least they think it is - but I have no idea who the sources could be. More surprised if it can wait until March - situation is only getting worse - Lam does not have it in her to end the protests.

    Beijing is too scrupulous to leak a story?

    That is always possible. To what purpose in this case though?

    The usual, I would imagine. It allows them a supersoft-launch of a policy, and the ability to gauge reactions before making a decision that might be unpopular and cause divisions within socie......

    Ah. I see what you mean.

    After getting the extradiction bill shitcanned, chalk up another significant victory for the protesters when this comes to pass.
