On study that claims those in poverty are nearly 47 per cent fewer if public housing subsidies counted as income:

Wingy Sandy Hui - Many people who earn HK$10,000 per month don't qualify for public housing, but can't afford their expensive rent either. I consider them to be in poverty. And I'm one of them.

Tom Grundy - Stop press: C. Y. slashes poverty in half with convoluted maths! Heck, we're all millionaires already!

Dan Gar - Playing monkey business like this will just lead to larger and more protests.


On China's anti-corruption campaign:

Lawrence Cheung - The CPC is out of control. Politicians need to be held accountable to THE PEOPLE, not some higher-up official(s) who may themselves be corrupt.

With the imminent strike on Syria by the US government, the Nobel Prize committee should ask Obama to return the Peace Award to them first. Or better still, Obama should volunarily return the Award to the Nobel Committee. Then again, one should not expect much from Obama anymore. In retrospect, America needed Obama when he won the first Presidential election. America desperately needed change and he was an essy sell to the naive American public when had grown tired of 8.years of GWB.
