    If you support the so-called "people's democratic dictatorship" (*) you just might not have anything to hide, right?

    Anyway, hiding things from the rulers is an evil foreign invention to be resolutely eradicated.

    "The nature of the activity and targeting is consistent with a government backed actor," the Google researchers say.



    (*) As self-decribed by certain TLA.

    Now compare the murder rates in London Vs in Hong Kong

    Maybe, just maybe, that budget is working?

    Do you have any evidence of a causal relationship between the number of police in Hong Kong and the low murder rate?

    No, but as common sense goes, this one is about as clear-cut as they come

    Practically the definition of spurious correlation.

    I could say check out those same budgets and murder rates 5, 10 and 15 years ago but that would be too easy. Too easy.

    Now compare the number of people locked up for "National Security" offences in London Vs in Hong Kong.
