Parthian Shot

Good on you, York Chow. Hong Kong's only minister ('secretary") either qualified for his position or worthy of it, has spoken out questioning the Mainland authorities' claim that Li Wangyang killed himself, the first senior official to do so, or indeed to do anything like this.

As an orthopaedic doctor with a particular involvement with the disabled, his words have an additional authority which the Mainland government can hardly gainsay. As a reluctant politician, sometimes the target of internal struggles but never an instigator, and as a modest and decent man who must have been revulsed by the death of a disabled man, his words will make the Chinese very uncomfortable.
