THAT curiously-named gamekeeper turned poacher, Warwick Reid, will probably never escape the attentions of Asia's finest, who hate to see someone they consider to be one of their own turn traitor. We hear they have been carefully monitoring the recently-released felon as he travelled from his native New Zealand to Taiwan and Singapore, no doubt to arrange for the release of his ill-gotten gains to the rightful authorities. Now we understand why Reid chose not to accept the offer of a new identity from the ICAC and police in the face of death threats from those exposed in statements he made to them after his arrest. Apparently, had the former director of public prosecutions done so, he would not have been recognised by the banks with whom he secreted the bribes he received for not pursuing certain legal cases. FORGET the battle between Lan Kwai Fong and Wan Chai for the entertainment crown of Hong Kong. Quarry Bay, home of this redoubtable newspaper, is where it's at. The restaurant moguls are moving in. Latest to join the crowd is former male stripper, property speculator and kung fu film star Eric Kee, best known for feeding the Mid-Levels masses at his eateries in Robinson Road and Mosque Junction. Kee, a 34-year-old Hong Kong born Chinese Malay, owns Animals, Phuket's Seafood Grill Club, Paco's and Rico's. He now plans to open a new Phuket's just off King's Road. THE new political flavour of the month in Britain is shadow foreign secretary Robin Cook, a highly-respected figure despite his physical resemblance to a gnome. Given the unpopularity of the present government in Britain, Mr Cook is expected to take the reins of real power at the next general election and, as such, will be courted by Chris Patten during his visit to London. The Governor says he will invite Mr Cook to Hong Kong. Mr Cook is now a formidable player on the international scene as regards this territory. Shame, then, that a certain English language TV news reporter referred to him on air as Peter Cook, the recently-demised British comedian and proprietor of the satirical magazine Private Eye, who was somewhat more noted for his humour than his surname-sake.
