The Real Reason HK Government Pulled Out of Dialogue

Diana Zhang / October 11, 2014

The Hong Kong government pulled out of negotiating with protesters after news broke that in 2012 Leung Chun-ying received a $6.5 million payment from an Australian engineering company.

But the real reason for the pullout can’t be seen from the surface.

Leung has been Beijing’s man in Hong Kong as chief executive since early 2012. The Communist Party backed him—until now.

Guardian.co.uk - Mark Lynas / 22 December 2009

Copenhagen was a disaster. That much is agreed. But the truth about what actually happened is in danger of being lost amid the spin and inevitable mutual recriminations. The truth is this: China wrecked the talks, intentionally humiliated Barack Obama, and insisted on an awful "deal" so western leaders would walk away carrying the blame. How do I know this? Because I was in the room and saw it happen.

Thousands of women used and discarded by Mao

Translated from Kanzhongguo  10/11/2009


Mao Zhedong’s licentious life may be well known by many people, especially overseas Chinese who are able to talk freely among their acquaintances.
