Philip Wong Yu-Hong


Rough transit

I refer to the letter from an American citizen travelling to Hainan Island ('Rude immigration', October 14).

Have we forgotten how to laugh?

Surely, it is better for us to know exactly how a politician like Philip Wong Yu-hong feels when he sticks his finger up. The deputy prime minister of Britain is much less genteel - he punched somebody back once.

But the wider issue is that we have lost our sense of humour in Hong Kong.

Senseless action

What is wrong with the man? - a legislator, whom the people of Hong Kong are supposed to respect, giving a one-fingered gesture to a 50,000 crowd outside Legco and broadcast on television.

Is Philip Wong Yu-hong so senseless he does not realise that his action could have sparked, at worst, a riot?

'I drank a bit too much last night. Many people pushed me to drink, I was quite excited.' - Pro-government legislator Philip Wong Yu-hong explaining why he made a rude gesture with his middle finger to a crowd holding a candle-lit vigil outside the Legislative Council on Wednesday night.
