Knowing CY Leung of old, everything he has done since being anointed to the position of chief executive has been very much predictable and in character.
By now, his problems with the truth are of course widely known, perhaps first exposed to a wider audience by Henry Tang during the 2012 debates when CY lied about his leanings towards tear gassing protesters. This exposure has since been supplemented many times over by CY himself – as a start, one just needs to look at his lies about illegal works at his house. The “Dreambear” case also comes to mind.
So aside from his general psychosis, he is also a pathological liar – or perhaps one flows from the other.
Notice that, last year, when he said that he would run again, he turns to the camera, as if to speak to the public rather than the interviewer. Such was his confidence about running in 2017. As the interviewer points out, things are of course different now. But rather than acknowledge this, CY just brazenly and without blinking declares that the interviewer got his facts wrong and that he never said he would run in 2017. What a lying lowlife thug.
