    I find it interesting that of all the SCMP columnists, it is Michael Chugani, a pretty staunch pro-establishment figure prior to the protests, has transformed into a fierce critic of the HK government and Lam. Has Chugani simply woke up after he stopped drinking the Kool Aid from the government? Is this even his real stance, as he may simply be doing this to offer some counter argument variety on the paper, I don't know.

    Whatever the case may be, here he criticized the new Liasion office top man as a hardliner who knows nothing about HK. Personally, I think it is a little early to know what this new guy is thinking to jump to the conclusion he is a hardliner, but Chugani's observation of Lam having lost her mind is quite apt:

    Talking about glass...

    Reduce
    Reuse
    Recycle...


    The govt seems very determined to cut off glass bottles from the #antiELAB supply chain via stopping glass containers recycle. Though, it sounds like playing ostrich because the glass waste won’t be gone. Some told me this policy was introduced as early as Nov.

    One reply to that tweet:

    "When there isn’t any recycling box, it will increase supply for other purposes, right? "

    Can you guess the number of "civil servants" working in the police department arrested or indicted?

    Pro tip: the number was invented by the ancient Egyptians (for accounting purposes, not mathematics)


    41 civil servants in Hong Kong were arrested for unlawful public activities and 31 of them were suspended by the end of last year, Civil Services Bureau chief Law Chi-kwong told lawmakers.

    https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/...ol-bombs-while

    12 and 14 months prison sentence for carrying two molotov cocktails around. bit excessive...

    and the judge was good as discovering what the two thought (despite them saying something else): "Acting principal magistrate Don So Man-lung set a starting point of 21 months in jail for both defendants, after finding the bombs were likely to be used to wound others, rather than cause damage to property"

    Sounds just like the Singaporean Judicial System.
