Donald Tsang likened himself to the iceberg in Titanic when dismissing fears the economy might meet a similar fate to the 'unsinkable' vessel. He said the blockbuster reminded him to keep as cool as an iceberg. 'One could be forgiven for getting the impression that Hong Kong, its currency, its economy, were like the Titanic: well built but doomed to go under. 'I steeled myself against such opinions with the thought that I should be like the iceberg, keeping my cool, keeping my head above water. There may be still some ships of speculators bumbling around that will pop their rivets on us. The seas around us will be heavy, not calm.'
