    The TV series, titled National Security Law – the Cornerstone of Prosperity and Stability, has been broadcast since November 27.

    Chief Executive John Lee has dismissed the idea that his government focuses on national security and nothing else, saying anyone making such a ridiculous claim would be engaging in "soft resistance".

    Well that's a quote for the ages. He literally has nothing else in his head. This is what happens when you have a police man 'run' a city. He's gotta police and that's it.

    TIL: HK is actively preventing Western Thieves from coming here now

    https://www.hk01.com/%E7%A4%BE%E6%9C...BC%95%E5%8A%9B

    Chief Sectary Eric Chan went on radio this morning to denounce Moody's downgrade:
    • foreign ratings agencies smear HK
    • NSL and improved electoral system prevents "Western thieves"
    • 180k talent visa applications shows HK still an attractive market

    He stressed that the improvement of the electoral system, the National Security Law and other measures are "off the door" for Hong Kong to prevent the Western "thieves entering the house" led by the United States, and Hong Kong is still very attractive to talents and enterprises.
