Political Pornography

According to the South China Morning Post:

"The honorary president of the pro-government Federation of Trade Unions [and Executive Councillor], Cheng Yiu-tong, has expressed support for a screening mechanism to be introduced for future chief executive elections.

Mr Cheng said otherwise, when universal suffrage is introduced, the people of Hong Kong might end up electing a 'porn star' to the territory's top job.

He said that had happened overseas but it was something that Hong Kong people don't want to see here."

Well if they don't want to see it here, they won't vote for one, will they?  Duh!  That's how democracy works.

Mind you, some porn stars could probably do a better job than our current bunch of politicians...
