Managing the media so Tsang gets his way

A week is a long time in politics, as is often said, and yesterday a smiling, calm and confident Donald Tsang Yam-kuen was shown on television apparently conversing genially with people who accepted his leaflets on the 2012 electoral reform package.

The great debate

What a rabble! For years people have been calling for transparency from our leaders yet no sooner does Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen announce that he's prepared to take part in a televised debate, than everyone and their wife fall over themselves to complain that it wasn't them who was asked to challenge him. The media, meanwhile, can only imagine he has ulterior motives.

Poll position

Being Donald Tsang Yam-kuen can't be easy. For one thing our dyspeptic chief executive is burdened by a hideous fashion error: choosing to wear a tie of a type that has been out of style for centuries.

Each man kills the thing he loves. And so, since last weekend, Joel Chung Yin-chai, an artist and long-time advocate of his late friend Tsang Tsou-choi's street calligraphy, has gone on a rampage. He has painted over, removed or defaced at least five of Tsang's last remaining graffiti as an act of protest - against the government for not doing more to preserve them.

Spying is not the answer to drugs

Youth drug use is undeniably a growing problem. Police statistics and surveys show this is a trend. But spying on children and randomly testing them at school are not solutions. It will probably destroy trust and relationships.

Thumbs down for Tsang's policy address

Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen's fifth policy address, which recently stirred up controversy with its backing of a proposed light-bulb cash-coupon scheme, yesterday failed to win approval from the legislature.

Stranger than fiction

From the light-bulb scandal to the recent report that a lawmaker helped his sister-in-law get early compensation for losses on Lehman Brothers minibonds, beleaguered Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen has been under vicious media attack for more than two weeks. Allegations of transfer of benefits and claims of favouritism have dominated the front pages, with no sign of abating.

Historic Central under scrutiny

A conservation concern group has welcomed Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen's initiatives to preserve historic areas in Central, but says he should go further to protect more places.
