Which one is the mainstream?
In yet another sign of how far Hong Kong politics has drifted from reality, ATV news tonight reports that "Beijing's mouthpiece newspaper the Global Times published an editorial today hailing Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying's own report on political reform as 'more representative than any other voice in Hong Kong and the best definition of the SAR's current situation'". So don't worry, Daddy knows best - but more representative of what exactly?
The Global Times article also claimed that mainstream opinion in Hong Kong had been "hijacked by extremists". That must explain the 800,000 mainstream people I saw recently being dragged kicking and screaming into polling booths to vote in the Occupy Central civil referendum. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands marching from Victoria Park to Tamar at gunpoint on 1st July.
