    The better of two undesirable options for 2017 election

    Posted Apr 09th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com The better of two undesirable options You really have to give it to Elsie Leung Oi-sie. Now in semi-retirement, it may be more comfortable for the Beijing loyalist to keep a lower profile and enjoy life. But foolhardiness or dedication to public service seems to compel her to speak up. Let's not be too tough on the former justice secretary. Her latest ...

    Qiao Xiaoyang conjures a democracy of exclusion

    Posted Mar 28th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Qiao conjures democracy of exclusion Can you have one person, one vote while still backsliding on universal suffrage? The latest pronouncement by Qiao Xiaoyang seems to suggest this. The chairman of the National People's Congress' law committee said any chief executive candidate would need majority support from a nomination committee. ...

    Comparisons can solve gross problem

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Comparisons can solve gross problem How strange it is to find myself agreeing with those vampire squids from the Real Estate Developers Association. REDA members have made the most outlandish profits by misleading and distorting the true sizes of flats people have bought over the decades, while the government looked on. The association is still fighting ...

    Hong Kong needs to get real on national interest

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

    ... National interest means different things to different people. So it's interesting that President Xi Jinping cited it in his maiden speech as head of state to urge Hong Kong and Macau to rally behind the country. No doubt he has intended a heavy dose ...

    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 ...

    Catholic Church's scandals no mere 'footnotes'

    Posted Feb 28th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Catholic scandals no mere 'footnotes' Many people know Paul Kennedy as the author of the bestselling The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers . Now, thanks to a poignant opinion piece in The New York Times , everyone knows he is a Catholic. He notes with irony that he is probably the only known practising Catholic professor at the very ...

    47: the magic number of yes votes to pass constitutional reform

    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. Many Hong Kong people, especially among our young activists whose souls burn with fire for true democratic ...

    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 ...

    Leung is stupid, but so are his critics

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Leung is stupid, but so are his critics In sending a threatening lawyer's letter to a newspaper, Leung Chun-ying did something stupid and counterproductive. All that has done is enable his critics and enemies to portray him as undermining the freedom of speech and of the press. But we should also ask: are they any less opportunistic, reprehensible ...
