    Wild weather no time for outdoor play

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Wild weather no time for outdoor play Days before Typhoon Usagi landed, the Observatory warned it would be one of the severest storms to hit Hong Kong in recent years. So when it arrived, what did some senseless people do? One woman was pictured in snorkelling gear as waves splashed onshore. A man was stripped down to his swimming trunks by the Star ...

    Model societies we can learn from

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Model societies we can learn from Funny how when you write something naughty in Hong Kong about the US and Britain, you are automatically accused of being anti-Western. Well, there is still the small continent known as Europe, where anti-US and anti-British sentiments are not unknown. I rather idealise Scandinavia and think those Nordic countries ...

    Absolutist pan-democrats risk another NPC interpretation

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Beware the NPC interpretation The idea of opening the chief executive nomination to every voter sounds great on paper. Another is to let everyone have a say in designing Hong Kong's future democratic system. The first idea is advocated by Scholarism led by teenagers; the second by legal scholar Benny Tai Yiu-ting. If these are the ends they seek, ...

    Support moderates who compromise

    Posted Sep 19th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Support moderates who compromise I went into the third and last Leung Chun-ying "consultation" dinner thinking it would be a waste of time. I came out more hopeful that a deal is possible to achieve universal suffrage by 2017. Judging by their presence at the gathering, the moderates among the pan-democratic and pro-establishment/Beijing ...

    For mobile millionaires, Singapore beats Hong Kong

    Posted Dec 11th 2012, 06:19pm by Singapore

    ... Bloomberg Singapore topped Hong Kong as the most desired place in Asia for so-called mobile millionaires to reside, with quality of life cited as the main attraction, a RBC Wealth Management survey showed. Almost a third of the millionaires in Asia who live, work or spend more than half their time outside their counties of origin prefer Singapore, while 24 per cent pick Hong ...

    Outsiders who stick their noses where they don't belong

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Sticking noses where they don't belong Who cares what the Brits and Americans think? They can say whatever they like about democratic developments in Hong Kong. It's a free city. They can huff and puff. But in the end, outsiders will not make one iota of difference, however the fight over universal suffrage turns out. It's a tug of war ...

    There's method in the message madness

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com There's method in the message madness Whatever you say about the mainland and its allies in Hong Kong, they have message discipline. Maybe too much discipline! In just this week, I have come across at least three different people who said the same thing: the new free-trade zone in Shanghai will threaten Hong Kong's premier status as a trade ...

    Abraham Razack is not standing up for the common man on stamp duty

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com In defence of the uncommon man It's amusing to watch Abraham Razack, our much-maligned tycoons' man in Legco, threatening fire and brimstone in hell for the government unless it reverses course on property cooling measures. The measures, he claims, penalise locals. Really? The guy who has devoted his entire career to defending the rights and privileges ...

    Posted Sep 16th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Sometimes it's better the devil you know Thomas Hobbes, the philosopher of the English civil war, applies his notion of the state of nature to how societies will degenerate into anarchy or civil war when there is no overarching authority to rein in people's passions and greed. Extending his idea to relations between states, scholars have argued ...

    ... Alex Lo The Hall of Uselessness: Collected Essays by Simon Leys New York Review Books 4 stars Alex Lo The fox knows many things, according to Isaiah Berlin, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. If so, Pierre Ryckmans, better known to the reading public as Simon Leys, is a rare hybrid. He knows one really big thing, China, but judging by this eclectic collection of essays spanning ...
