Found on Dangerous Minds.
A three day holiday weekend coming up, celebrating the 15th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China. After the weekend, we’ll have a new “Chief Executive”, C.Y. Leung. Donald Tsang departs after holding office for seven years.
Now while some may say it could be a case of the devil you know vs. the one you don’t, all I can say is, “Good fucking riddance Donald, don’t let the door bang you on your ass on your way out.”
What’s he done in his seven years? Well, let’s see. He’s done nothing while the wealth gap in Hong Kong became the widest in Asia. He’s built a monument to himself at Tamar. He accepted favors and gifts from the rich (in return for? not hard to guess). He has done absolutely nothing that I can recall to improve the lives of average Hong Kong people. Oh, yeah, he’s done nothing about pollution.

So C.Y. Leung has an illegal trellis and iron gate on his mansion. He couldn’t possibly be worse than Tsang. (Then again I said the same thing about Tsang when he took over from Tung Chee-Hwa and I was wrong; hope I’m not wrong this time!)
