    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?

    Thumbs down South China Morning Post

    The South China Morning Post is a reliable bastion of Chinese Communist Party propaganda intended for consumption by Western audiences, having been bought by Chinese eBay-a-like biz Alibaba five years ago.

    Despite its nominally Hong Kong roots, today the newspaper largely trumpets whatever China's Foreign Office wants the world to think about China.
