The title of a recently released Al-Jazeera article is “SYMBOLIC bid to impeach Hong Kong leader (CY Leung)” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/asia-pacific/2013/01/201319125155987872.html).
“Emily Lau, the chairwoman of the Democratic Party, said that Leung had “CHEATED his way to power“. This is true. However, Democrats in Hong Kong are also A MESS going through MARTIN LEE (October 2, 1994 – December 2, 2002) to YEUNG SUM (December 2, 2002 – December 12, 2004) to LEE WING-TAT (December 12, 2004 – December 17, 2006) to ALBERT HO (December 17, 2006 – September 10, 2012) to the current chairwoman EMILY LAU. “(Speaking) about the city’s first impeachment motion”, Lau said: “This is the first time we have a motion in the legislature to impeach a cheating chief executive“.
Again, this conclusion is easy. The effort to impeach CY Leung (Leung Chun-ying’s nickname) is ONLY “symbolic” *(i.e. DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING) because CHINA wants him (i.e. LEUNG) in power. Keep in mind that Hong Kong’s Chief Executive is only chosen by 1600 people out of a population of about 8 million. In 2012, the choice was between A CHINA LOYALIST (Leung) and a DONALD TSANG cabinet insider (former Financial Secretary & Chief Secretary HENRY TANG) and we got THE CHINA LOYALIST.
