    Polluters should pay for clean vehicles

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Polluters should pay for clean vehicles It's a good thing that the government has finally rolled out a programme to replace old catalytic converters and oxygen sensors on taxis and minibuses. We will, hopefully, have less toxic air to breathe in the city. The only problem I have is that it is a subsidy programme. Why should I and other taxpayers ...

    Why not have Hong Kong schools in Shenzhen?

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Why not have HK schools in Shenzhen? Our government loves international schools. So it's not clear why it doesn't jump at the idea of setting up our own schools on the mainland, that is, the equivalent of Hong Kong running its own "international" schools. The idea was first floated by Michael Tien Puk-sun, a veteran political operator ...

    No reason to limit app access to public records

    Posted Aug 15th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com No reason to hide our public records Privacy protection is a good thing, until it is not. When you have a busybody of a privacy commissioner obstructing people's access to public information, it becomes counterproductive. Commissioner Allan Chiang Yam-wang has ruled that a mobile app called Do No Evil breached data protection laws and ordered ...

    Benny Tai is not evil, just misguided

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

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Benny Tai is not evil, just misguided Benny Tai Yiu-ting has been called many names. The latest by Robert Chow Yung of Silent Majority for Hong Kong, a sort of anti-Occupy Central group, is that his plan for civil disobedience is "evil". That's just silly. The problem is not that Tai is evil. He is perfectly sincere and is campaigning in good ...

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

    ... 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.

    ... Alex Lo Wealth and Power: China's Long March to the Twenty-First Century by Orville Schell and John Delury Random House 4 stars Alex Lo How you understand and translate the Chinese phrase zhongguo says much about what you think about China, and the presuppositions and biases you entertain about it.

    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 ...

    ... 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.

    Cheney is a true threat to freedom

    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 ...
