More good ‘back to normal’ stories

The overseas wanted eight are ‘rats who should be avoided’, says Chief Executive John Lee. And Security Secretary Chris Tang rejects comments by Ted Hui as a ‘blatant affront to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and to our country’.

NatSec police pick up Nathan Law’s parents and brother. Tang…

…called him a “Chinese traitor” who had taken part in “evil acts.”

Other relatives of activists taken in for questioning in the last year or so include family members of Kwong Chung-ching and Long Hair’s step-daughter. It’s not a good look for a city that’s trying to be back to business as usual. But the Secretary for Justice insists that if the local legal system is getting a bad image, it’s the fault of foreign media.

Science or politics? Hong Kong prepares to ban fish from parts of Japan near Fukushima…

The IAEA’s report found that Japan’s plan to release water from the plant hit by the devastating 2011 tsunami is “consistent with international safety standards,” after thorough scientific investigations cross-checked by multiple accredited labs around the world.

But … Hong Kong said it has … “repeatedly indicated to the Japanese authorities that once Japan commences the discharge, the HKSAR Government will immediately take control measures”…

The city did say that it would take the IAEA’s report into account but would also rely on “the opinion of Mainland China’s experts,” among others. As of publication time, the government had not replied to Nikkei Asia’s queries on the identity of the experts and how their views would be reflected.

…Naoto Nakahara, deputy consul general at the Japanese Consulate in Hong Kong, told Nikkei that the local government is “trying to win brownie points from Beijing.”

Regina Ip wades in, ‘blasting’ the Japanese diplomat.

The UK issues a tougher travel advisory for visitors to Hong Kong…

You should be aware that issuing or supporting political statements critical of the Hong Kong and Chinese authorities, including online and on social media, could be viewed as a crime under the NSL and may lead to prosecution in Hong Kong. Those who support individuals who themselves are deemed to be conducting activities in contravention of the National Security Law could also face prosecution under the same law.

    In a related vein, there’s a great video here:
    A majority of the associated comments are telling. The only thing wrong with HK right now is the weather, but soon the fall will kick in. Then, it will be close to perfect.

    Our family has a child heading overseas for university and we have had to talk with them regarding the possibility of protests, and if they were to attend they may be at risk if they were return to HK. Everything is fine.

    All right. I’m not boring but I do go on about it.

    The Hong Kong junta, over- achievers and hyper over-adapters to parental authority of any kind, flash their potties at every opportunity. Yes, Daddy Xi, its really full and I wiped my own ass!!! Please don’t send me to Kumon.

    “A day never passed when spies and saboteurs acting under his directions were not unmasked by the Thought Police. He was the commander of a vast shadowy army, an underground network of conspirators dedicated to the overthrow of the State. The Brotherhood, its name was supposed to be. There were also whispered stories of a terrible book, a compendium of all the heresies, of which Law was the author and which circulated clandestinely here and there. It was a book without a title. People referred to it, if at all, simply as the book. But one knew of such things only through vague rumours. Neither the Brotherhood nor the book was a subject that any ordinary Party member would mention if there was a way of avoiding it.”

    The nice thing about the world is that wine and girls are available almost everywhere you want to live. Not Saudi Arabia or Malaysia for example. But which came first? The wine or the girls? Did it all happen at the same time?

    Time for a golden shower of chilled white wine. I am ABC – anything but Chardonnay.

    I turned off when your presenter said 28 was double 19.

    Basic imprecion/exaggeration like that does not help his case.

    @scrotum #4 – In these enlightened days of LGBTQ++++ etc etc it is easy to understand the crush you have on that Gweilo youtube hunk who’s challenged by the grocer’s apostrophe. How it must have brought you back to those days in Ingerland with your blossoming youth corrupted, your sensibilities sullied by rejection by those other chaps. It all helps explain your current delirium and craven need for attention.
    Stick to watching that dirge yourself and foist your homoerotic fawning on the likes of Gweilo’s threads. He may reward you one day.
    And no, I didn’t watch his pathetic bilge.
