    ... 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.

    Applying Marx to government dinners

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Applying Marx to government dinners Wasn't it Groucho Marx who said "I don't care to belong to any club that will have me as a member?" I share the sentiment. That is why I don't have high hopes about a series of dinners which chief executive Leung Chun-ying has been hosting to gauge the views of a cross-section of society on political ...

    Big Brothers of every shade are watching, in China and the US

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Big Brothers of every shade are watching Big Brother is watching. And his face can look either Chinese or American these days. What is fascinating is that the world's leading authoritarian state and its greatest democracy look increasingly like the two sides of the same awesome state power crushing the lone individual in their respective societies. ...

    Pan-democrats appear all mixed-up over 2017 election

    Posted Sep 14th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Pan-democrats appear all mixed up Let me see if I understand the latest tussle between the liaison office and the Civic Party. It's another political storm in the teacup but it does show how confusing and obscurantist some pan-democrats can be. The party is upset Beijing's top man in Hong Kong, Zhang Xiaoming , has shot down its proposal of a civil ...

    Paul Chan put his foot in it by suggesting country park homes

    Posted Sep 11th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Paul Chan puts his foot in it - again Paul Chan Mo-po is so gaffe-prone it's a wonder his boss the chief executive has not imposed a public communication ban on him. The development secretary has done it again, this time saying that Hong Kong should consider building flats in country parks to boost land supply. Almost as soon as he pressed ...

    Setting more rules won't solve Hong Kong's ills; enforce the ones we have

    Posted Sep 10th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com No more rules! Enforce the ones we have Hong Kong has all the rules, regulations and laws bureaucrats can dream of. But often the problem is that they don't bother to enforce them. Whenever a government department sets up a new task force or an initiative claiming a particular type of crime or violation is on the rise, you can be sure of one thing. ...

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com If Leung is forced to quit, what then? People should be careful what they wish for. NeoDemocrats lawmaker Gary Fan Kwok-wai and hundreds of people signed an advert that ran in newspapers in Hong Kong and Taiwan calling on Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying to resign.

    Posted Sep 06th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Alliance can at least recognise reality Wow, there are still some adults in the pan-democratic camp! For a while, I thought they were letting the kids from Scholarism take over the whole movement. The Alliance for True Democracy has proposed a half-decent plan for reforming the 2016 Legislative Council election as a step towards a fully elected ...

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Good reason to worry about US power "When the president does it, that means it is not illegal." This famous statement from the late Richard Nixon, made during his TV interview in 1977 with David Frost, is again in the news as obituaries and tributes flow in for the legendary British broadcaster who died, aged 74.

    Counting public housing as a subsidy

    Posted Sep 03rd 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Counting public housing as a subsidy Should public housing be counted as a subsidy? This is no idle question. If it is, the number of poor in Hong Kong could almost halve -from 1.29 million to 690,000. The government, of course, has an incentive to have fewer poor people. Anti-poverty advocates would insist on the higher numbers. The Society ...
