Let’s start the day with a dose of vindictiveness and spite, laced with generous helpings of ethno-nationalism! CY Leung’s open (not to say unsolicited) response to remarks made by Jimmy Lai’s son Sebastian when receiving his father’s honorary doctorate from Catholic U in Washington DC. Meanwhile, the persecution of Lai senior continues with one of his former colleagues turning queen’s or state’s or whoever’s evidence.
(I thought the deal was that even if you take foreign citizenship, you’re still a Son of the Yellow Emperor. To see how xenophobic mouth-frothing is done properly, try the wit and wisdom of Prof Chen Xianyi – scourge of foreigner-worshiping, self-hating, race traitors. Amateur psychologists will have fun guessing what’s going on here.)

Thus, AFP reports, the city faces rising interest rates. While it is fine to overturn freedom of speech and rule of law, one core value remains sacrosanct: keeping property prices as high as possible. We can expect tighter land supply, relaxed mortgage restrictions and similar measures if the housing market falls more than, say, 10-15%. Some things cannot change.

Stopped reading after that. Some retired old fart trying make himself relevant after a lifetime as a mediocre, low-to-mid level bureaucrat in a so called military arm full of dancers, orchestras, artists and basket weavers? The fact he now even has a platform for saying the right things at the right time just shows how utterly 下流 he and his masters are.
Of course these are the type of shit stirrers that get into the simple, peasant minds of societal rejects like the mainlander that opened fire on a church congregation of Taiwanese in Southern California, just the other day.
(the Chinese in this case is just so much descriptively better in his case. As well as for CY in any & ALL aspects.)
