How much?

Soon we won't have Donald Tsang Yam-kuen to kick around any more. He retires on June 30 a political corpse, leaving no legacy to boast of after 40 years in public service.

Muddy affair

Beware, all you top politicians. The people have tasted blood, and they thirst for more. Have you fathered a child out of wedlock? If yes, destroy all pictures of the child.

Tsang's rules come too late for Tsang

It's a cliche to say 'once a civil servant, always a civil servant'. But, if you have to condense the chief executive's long and pitiful mea culpa to the legislature, that was pretty much his explanation of what went wrong.

Strange world - Tsang lectures Davos

There was that overly earnest and almost pained look again. Donald Tsang Yam-kuen does that whenever he wants to make sure you know that whatever he is doing is for your own good. Perhaps it's that Christian faith he is always talking about - his job is a selfless act.

Accusations that Andy Tsang Wai-hung has been heavy-handed in dealing with public protests after barely nine months as the city's police chief - particularly during last month's visit of Vice-Premier Li Keqiang - should come as no surprise.
