My Take by Alex Lo
Carrie Lam warns against constitutional coup
- The good news for the opposition is that the government may be preparing for their majority in the new legislature for the first time in Hong Kong history
- The bad news is that if they try to exploit Article 52 of the Basic Law to get rid of her, she will retaliate with the national security law
