I have always felt that if Hong Kong has to have a pro-Beijing type in charge (and unfortunately as long as the CCP is in charge, it does), the best man for the job would be Tsang Yok-sing. Although I personally disagree with most of his political inclinations, Tsang has always struck me as an overall decent guy who won’t blurt out gibberish, just to please Beijing – unlike the pathological liar they put in charge of Hong Kong.
Of course, it comes as no surprise that Tsang has come forward to dismiss the ‘foreign forces are behind the protests’ B.S. propagated by CY Leung.
Here’s how RTHK reports it:
LegCo president and pro-establishment DAB lawmaker, Tsang Yok-sing, has said he does not believe foreigners are the driving force behind the Occupy Central civil disobedience movement.
His comments, on Cable TV, appear to contradict the view often expressed by mainland media that people from outside China are funding the Occupy movement in order to start a so-called colour revolution.
Earlier this month, the Chief Executive CY Leung said forces from other countries had been encouraging the mass protests, though he refused to identify them.
