Posted in: Lam says Chinese military could step in if uprising gets bad See in context

Free Hong Kong. America has pledged to defend Taiwan from chinese aggression, it should also defend Hong Kong in its hour of need. China is an appalling country, the world would be so much better if they didn't exist.

I am so sorry for the parents, such a terrible thing to happen.

I wonder 2 things. Is is possible she was kidnapped by someone and is still alive somewhere?

Could a spiritualist/psychic try to help locate their daughter. I know that these type of people do help police forces on occasion. Anyway, nothing to lose now.

Posted in: Tour company Thomas Cook collapses; global bookings for more than 600,000 canceled See in context

Actually I am wondering why the UK government didn't bail out TC?? TC needed 200 million but it will cost an estimated 600 million to bring all stranded tourists home!

Trouble is people (most people?) can book everything themselves on line. These travel agencies are yesterday's companies which are not really needed anymore. The collapse is nothing to do with BREXIT as thinking people will understand. Very sad though, this siuation. So many other comapanies and jobs depend on TC.

I'm still going to take a holiday in HK. I really like it there and enjoy practicing my still admittedly rather weak Cantonese. I support the protestors. Free Hongkong now!!

Posted in: Cathay Pacific to cut capacity as demand for Hong Kong travel falls See in context

Not just the HK political situation but the airline has really gone downhill in the last 3 years or so. All due to their cost cutting programme following massives losses. As far as possible I avoid Cathay for pleasure and business trips in favour of Singapore Airlines who provide just a great service in both Economy and Business classes.

I quite agree Mr. Luddite. Airports are stressful noisy places at the best of times, a necessary evil. Always easier for me to deal with a real living person than a machine.

Posted in: UK court: Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament unlawful See in context

Any lawyers here? English judges say his actions were legal, Scottish judges say it was illegal. People will want to believe whichever verdict suits their political stance of course. Will be interesting to see what the Supreme Court come up with next week.

Posted in: UK court: Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament unlawful See in context

Scottish judges said it was unlawful but last week English judges said it wasn't unlawful. Which verdict is correct? The English one I would presume but I am confused here. Anyway next Tuesday the Surpreme court of the UK will hand down its verdict.

Posted in: Britain's Johnson vows to fight on despite Brexit blows See in context

The Queen must refuse to sign the surrender bill from these despicable remoaners and Britain leaves on a no deal Brexit on October 31st. Should have been out months ago at the end of March, The majority voted to leave and these remoaner MPs have refused to accept the decision. Absolutely disgusting. It's no wonder MPs are held in such contempt these days. I really can't wait until the UK is free of the eu and we see the end of all these endless arguments.

BREXIT now! The remoaners will be defeated and the result of the referendum carried out. These remoaner MPs are despicable but happy to see they will be challenged in court.

And I might add that others in my company who use Cathay Pacific for business travel feel the same way as I do. If my company is representative of other companies, Cathay Pacific will lose a fair number of passengers over their disgraceful actions, in business class at least.

I used to like using Cathay Pacific for business and personal travel but not any longer. I am not going to use them ever again. Disgusting and gutless, kowtowing to the communists like that. From now on its Singapore Airlines all the way.

Posted in: Would China risk another Tiananmen in Hong Kong? See in context

The PLA are already in HK it seems, wearing HK police uniforms. Protesters are saying in their blogs that many of the HK police they are encountering now cannot speak Cantonese properly and speak with strange accents, not a HK accent. This explains why they have become so brutal of late, they are not from HK.

The protesters are so brave, but I fear for the endgame.

Free Hong Kong now!!

Posted in: Switzerland helping Japanese prosecutors with Ghosn investigation See in context

Why is Ghosn even staying in Japan?

He is never going to get a free and fair trial. The powers that be have already decided on his guilt. As a 66 year old man, he doesn’t have many years left. He should just escape from Japan to a country without extradition treaties with Japan and enjoy the years he has left.

Just crazy. Minimum wage should be at least 1500 yen. A magnificent raise of 27 yen. Get lost!

No wonder there are so many job vacancies. Who is going to be motivated to get out of bed in the morning for a paltry 900 yen?

Ban alcohol it destroys lives. Allow Cannabis, it enhances and makes your life more enjoyable. Every time I go to Canada on business I never fail to partake these days in the good stuff.

Japan is about 100 years behind other countries so probably sometime in the next century it will legal here.

Interesting article! Personally I am not into weight training so much. I have always enjoyed running and amateur boxing. Keeps me in relatively good shape. I do do some weights but this is not my main focus. But as someone above says, it's a matter of what you enjoy and what keeps you motivated.
