Last Saturday, taking a leaf perhaps from Melania Trump’s book, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said she and superstar Andy Lau had become victims of cyber-bulling for their support for the massive Lantau land reclamation project. So how does the CE feel about the honely loving bear and piglet parodies that are all over the internet following the widely televised images of Mrs Lam walking side by side with President Xi Jinping at that bridge opening this week. Joining us in the studio to talk about the Shatin-Central link scandal is Michael Tien, chairman of Legco’s Subcommittee on Matters Relating to Railways and founder of Roundtable. Hong Kong isn’t known to be big on sports. In the Policy Address, the Chief Executive said she is allocating HK$500 million for a matching grant scheme to solicit support from the private sector for sporting events. New facilities are being built in Kai Tak and other districts. However, these measures focus on big events in big venues, with little regard to the needs of sport’s people particularly those who aspire to be fulltime athletes let alone athletes with physical disabilities. Despite this Hong Kong teams brought home an impressive clutch of medals from the Asia Games and the more recent Asian Para Games.
