A funny thing happened

Lawrence Leung, star of TV, radio, stage and screen has visited Hong Kong many times, but has yet to perform in the city.

Lawrence Leung didn't plan to become a role model. His stand-up comedy and high-rating television shows do not draw on issues such as racism, a goldmine for some of Australia's "ethnic" comedians. Nor does he make jokes about Chinese culture and his background - all those Saturday mornings at Cantonese school, for instance.

Resignation of chief executive would create a political vacuum in city

With all due respect to the protesters who joined the July 1 march, I sense that a miasma of irrationality has permeated society.

I have no grudge against querulous protesters, but I think that some acts were truly unnecessary.

There were, for instance, booths which invited protesters to strike a wolf-shaped inflatable with spiked maces.

By now, it should be pretty obvious that our new chief executive is an impatient man. Even before taking office, he was busy making changes that he had promised in his election campaign. But fate had the upper hand, and Leung Chun-ying's government restructuring will have to wait, as will his vows for 'change'.

Leung must dig himself out of the credibility hole

It is not too much of an exaggeration to say that the fate of the entire Leung Chun-ying administration hinges on how well he conducts himself in the next two weeks. If he gets it right, he can recover quickly from the bumpy start he has been suffering since his come-from-behind victory in the chief executive election.

Leung's vow to meet the people falls flat

New chief executive Leung Chun-ying's vow to meet the public regularly in town-hall style assemblies was widely belittled yesterday - a day after his first round of such visits - with one commentator labelling him hypocritical.

First day on the job a tough one for C.Y.'s team
