    Posted Nov 26th 2012, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Little hope for progress without vision As a Cantonese saying goes, rice cooked by the aunt next door is always tastier. That may be why people always ... In Hong Kong and Shenzhen, the powers that be usually single out Singapore. There are many similarities and its "executive-led" government can only make our government salivate ...

    Level playing field will help the poor

    Posted Oct 01st 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com A level playing field will help the poor Poverty is not just about social welfare. Such a welfare view provides at best a narrow perspective of the real battle. Yet, given the bureaucratic nature of the government, it's inevitable officials from the chief secretary downwards would think only of social welfare policies when it comes to addressing ...

    Jumping up and down about poverty

    Posted Sep 30th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Jumping up and down about poverty "Poverty" is politics. I put it in quotations because it is exactly like "democracy", a highly contested term that can mean anything depending on your ideology and vested interest. Of course it is also about economics, education and social conditions. But let's just focus on one glaring feature from ...

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com If Leung is forced to quit, what then? People should be careful what they wish for.

    No Darkness at Noon in Jinan

    Posted Aug 24th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com No Darkness at Noon in Jinan Communist parties seem to have a weakness for show trials. The most famous of these were the Moscow trials, which provided the backdrop to Arthur Koestler's powerful novel Darkness at Noon . I was reminded of it while watching the Bo Xilai trial. You can call it an open trial because millions of Chinese citizens can ...

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Snowden vindicated by NSA reforms The line between hero and traitor is a thin one indeed. Edward Snowden has been called both.

    Hapless Paul Chan should step aside

    Posted Jul 29th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Hapless Paul Chan should step aside It's time for ministers to realise they should quit when they can no longer do their job properly and have become a more of a liability than an asset to the government they serve. It is, after all, what being accountable means under our ministerial system, or should have meant if successive post-handover administrations ...

    How C.Y. won this spying game

    Posted Jun 26th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com How C.Y. won this spying game For once, Leung Chun-ying and his administration have proved to be cleverer than their critics and even the Americans. The explosive revelations by Edward Snowden about pervasive US cyberspying have been a propaganda coup for Beijing, but his presence in Hong Kong was a major embarrassment for the administration. Many people were ...

    Posted Jun 20th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Only dictatorships and authoritarian governments can truly prevent leaks and punish leakers. Democracies must accept them as part of their political machinations. A free press would be impossible if there were no whistle-blowers. Leaking is also a weapon ...

    Posted Jun 18th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Former US vice-president Dick Cheney has called Edward Snowden a traitor and a Chinese spy on Fox News channel. I don't know if he is right or not. But you could argue that both men have exposed the darkest side of the American government and the dan ...
