Private Beach on the high speed rail delay, 16 April: "Expect the usual response: a round of hand-wringing, at the end of which nobody will be held responsible."
One month later: the pro-China Morning Post reports that Chief Secretary Carrie Lam said
"the panel’s main objective
was to identify what went wrong in the process, and not to look for who was
personally responsible in order that they be penalised."
Heaven forbid that anyone should actually be held accountable for their screw-ups!. That would not be the Hong Kong way.
