    Hysteria will not hasten democracy

    Posted Mar 13th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Hysteria will not hasten democracy So a Beijing-friendly figure had an off-the-record lunch with a bunch of hacks from Hong Kong in which he or she mentioned having "a screening mechanism", like a nominating committee, to pick candidates for the chief executive post in the 2017 election. One hack - from Ming Pao - decided to spill the beans ...

    Piercing Tsang's 'middle class' delusion

    Posted Mar 02nd 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com So John Tsang Chun-wah lives a frugal lifestyle, drinks tea and watches French movies. Good for him, but that does not make him middle class. Maybe the finance secretary thinks being middle class is a state of mind. But as someone earning HK$302,205 a month and living in a luxury house (courtesy of taxpayers), excluding perks, benefits and a generous ...

    Posted Feb 23rd 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com 47: the magic number for democracy Forty seven. Let me repeat this number again: 47. That is the minimum number of yes votes required in the Legislative Council to pass any constitutional reform plan that will give Hong Kong universal suffrage.

    Is legal loophole a financial noose?

    Posted Feb 21st 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Is legal loophole a financial noose? Most of us can thumb our noses at authorities without suffering serious consequences. But few get to do it while making buckets of money in the process. Say what you will about Cheung Kong supremo Li Ka-shing and his beloved lieutenant Justin Chiu Kwok-hung, the property duo certainly know how to stick ...

    Baby formula plea to US is infantile

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Baby formula plea to US is infantile First they waved the British colonial flags. Now some are petitioning the White House to help resolve the baby formula shortage. Why don't these people just formally ask the Brits or Americans to colonise us and get it over with? Perhaps we really have reached the status of dire-straits countries like Haiti, ...

    Back to China, via Pyongyang?

    Posted Jan 17th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Back to China, via Pyongyang? "Don't be evil" may be Google's motto. But Google is also the company most often decried as bent on world domination. So what was its executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, doing last week in North Korea, a country with just 24.5 million people who are not connecting to the internet any time soon? ...

    'Freest economy' costs far more than it's worth

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Freest economy costs more than it's worth Newspapers give you the latest news but often not the context. Over two days in different sections of the paper last week, we carried stories about the failure of wage rises to meet price increases in the last decade; Hong Kong again being named the world's freest economy; and property tycoon ...

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Pan-dem elders offer a slither of hope One-time chief executive wannabe Alan Leong Kah-kit was caught off guard when his radio hosts asked him whether he would accept anti-subversion legislation in exchange for full democracy. Since there isn't any negotiation or even backroom chatter between the government, the pan-democratic camp ...

    Reporting on China? Pick your own facts

    Posted Nov 13th 2012, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Reporting China? Pick your own facts A neutral reader of news may be forgiven for being thoroughly confused by international media reports and foreign experts' views on China today. Beijing is always complaining about the bad press it gets, but I would say that has more to do with conflicting reporting and commentaries in the foreign media. ...
