Only a few years after permitting the destruction of the site, setting, landscape and meaning of the former marine police headquarters in Tsim Sha Tsui, the government is planning another outrage for a monument.

Government action seems directed to aiding and abetting the destruction of Hong Kong's heritage and environment, where the laws for the protection of heritage buildings are outdated and protection of heritage areas is non-existent. In this respect, we are woefully out of date compared with Singapore.
