Zhou Nan adds to HK’s celebratory mood

To make the week complete and wish everyone a very merry 20th Hong Kong Handover Anniversary, former perhaps-recently-exhumed Beijing official Zhou Nan cheerily suggests re-education for Hong Kong people who stubbornly refuse to keep up with the latest, brand-new, wacky, who’d-have-guessed-it? true meanings of the Basic Law as announced sporadically by the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress.

And I hope the South China Morning Post readers behind the disgraceful, uncalled-for comments on Old Joe’s physical appearance are thoroughly ashamed of themselves. No free ‘Diverse, Vibrant and Joyful’ SCMP T-shirt for you…

I declare the weekend open with a rainy afternoon’s entertainment for fans of Judy Dench (and many others) in half-forgotten classic Absolute Hell

  1. You are “Old Hem” down my way.

    A colonial survivor, tapping away meaninglessly on his insipid part-time employer’s time in Hong Kong when he should be playing bowls in Maidenhead.

    Glad they got the scorched wogs sorted in London.

    Pip, pip!

    Had enough, yet, Hemmers?

    The Ginger Whinger’s contribution today surely crosses every red line in the book.

    Put a stop to him, mate, or you’re going to lose all your loyal fans.

    “Glad they got the scorched wogs sorted in London.”

    Georgie, I was one of those who thought Hemlock should continue to give you a voice, but with this latest stab at “sarcasm” you’ve really scraped the bottom of a particularly fetid barrel.

    I think you need psychiatric help. Really. I’m serious.

  4. Joe Blow says:

    The “Seafood Room” at the 535 Tower in Causeway Bay is owned by the Russian mafia. It’s also seriously over-priced. Just so you know.

  5. Raspberry timepiece says:

    Loyal followers will remain just that. Better to comment on something other than the G word and not spread the free marketing. I imagine most followers don’t even bother reading the comments, anyhow. I rarely do. They’re invariably cryptic, fawning pale imitations, unfunny and/or plain banal. Unlike a good daily dose of Hemlock.

  6. Old Fishmarket Close says:

    Is George not a colonial survivor, too?

  7. Old Fishmarket Close says:

    I count myself as a loyal fan, but I shall never quit this site because of a few satirical comments. If you ask me, they’re probably in it together.

  8. FOARP says:

    I wouldn’t stop reading just because of Georgie, but he does post the same rubbish every time and it is getting annoying.

    FOARP your site is a bit strange, I get this from Chrome:
    Your connection is not private
    Attackers might be trying to steal your information from http://www.foarp.blogspot.com (for example, passwords, messages or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID

    That sounds like a problem with your connection HKMacs
