China Behind

What makes Cecile Tang Shu-shuen's 1974 film a masterpiece is not just that she dared to make a film about the Cultural Revolution when the turmoil was not even over, it was how she broached the topic with a humanistic, non-partisan approach which remains unique today.

Beijing's dutiful loyalists take a dim view

Sometimes you really have to feel for the central government when its muppets sitting on the Election Committee are so dim-witted they have to have everything spelled out for them.

We need to be honest and modest

Last Friday the three chief executive candidates participated in an election debate. During the debate, Henry Tang Ying-yen kept calling Leung Chun-ying a liar. This really shocked me.

Geopark officers must love nature and people

Integrity? Tang camp just doesn't get it

Many tycoon supporters of Henry Tang Ying-yen are sticking with their scandal-plagued candidate to be the next chief executive. They fail to see what all the fuss is about. It's an open secret that many rich men in Hong Kong keep mistresses and have children with them.

Tang's basement sexier than his bedroom

Sex is supposed to be a universal promoter of sales. But in Hong Kong, space commands a better premium and is therefore an even sexier subject.

This is why the so-called sex scandals about chief executive hopeful Henry Tang Ying-yen are becoming a yawn. Let's stick with the real scandal, which is the illegally built basement in his wife's house in Kowloon Tong.

Tang denies affair with banker

Chief executive hopeful Henry Tang Ying-yen yesterday denied having an affair with the daughter of a rural leader, a day after the Chinese press released pictures and e-mails claiming to prove he had.

'We are only casual acquaintances,' Tang said. 'She is not the first woman to get media coverage and I don't think she will be the last.'

Tang's supporters should think twice

It is a shame that scandal-plagued Henry Tang Ying-yen has defied public opinion and formally signed up for the chief executive election. Despite a growing public consensus that he should pull out, the beleaguered hopeful sought to make his candidacy a fait accompli by swiftly submitting nominations from nearly one-third of the 1,200-member Election Committee.
