Donald Tsang Explains Why LA Leg of HKTB Expo Added to Itinerary when he was Chief Secretary

Which loving father wouldn't spend HK$6 million of other people's money to visit his beloved son abroad?


UPDATE: Since this story doesn't seem to have made the English-language press, a quick summary of the Don's latest alleged indiscretion is in order. In 2003, when Sir Don was Chief Secretary, the Hong Kong Tourism Board had a long-standing commitment to stage a Hong Kong expo in New York. Shortly before the event too place,  the Chief Execrable Manqué asked the then head of the HKTB, Clara Chong, to arrange a second expo in Los Angeles, where his son happened - probably coincidentally - to be studying at the time. Once the roadshow got to LA, Donsberry made only a couple of fleeting appearances at the beano. Suggestions that he spent most of the time at the taxpayers' expense catching up with his boy must remain conjectural until either confirmed or denied by our God-fearing, Mass-attending, Tycoon-loving leader.

I've followed this story closely and have heard nothing of this. Do you have a source?

I was adding it at the very time you were pestering me for it!

I had to laugh at the SubStandard's lead article on the Chief Execrable entitled 'I solemnly apologize'. The Don is called 'the first chief executive to apologize' - like there have been more than two of them altogether.

I can see you and raise you. Last night, a preternaturally aesthetically challenged Chinese spokeswoman was lamenting how the protagonists in this year’s CE non-election were both mired in scandal. You’d have thought that would have made her feel everything was just as it should be.

Sorry but Chinese not up to the task. Can a brief synopsis be provided?

No wonder one says One Country Two System doesn't work. The Mainland political culture of senior bureaucrats being totally unaccountable to their actions is now transplanted to H K>

Donald Tsang is despised by all the civil servants in H K. He designed rules which prohibit accepting favors and such rules apply to every civil servant high or low rank except His Obedient Servant, Donald Tsang. He will go down in H K history in absolute disgrace.

It's good that the international media still take an active interest and keep an eye on the political development of Hong Kong. It should be emphasized that the prosperity of Hong Kong is tied with its political development. It should be more newsworthy than the election of Wukan village in guangdong province.

Donald Tsang who had more than 45 years of civil service experience ended his tenure in disgrace. Lord Patten (Mr. Patten as he then was) praised the H K civil service were the finest. In America, we have a joke: when do you know a politician lies? Every time he opens his mouth.

Corruption starts at the top and percolates downwards. The Kwok brothers of Sun Hung Kei properties and a former chief executive of H K were arrested on corruption charges. What else can you say about the incorruptibility of the H K society. It is a mirage.

Hong Kong. This city is dead.

That's what is says on the Methodist church in Wanchai, Francis. Do you have invisible friends, perchance?
