The Policy Address: Housing, The Middle Class, No Consultation on Gay Rights (18 Jan 2013)


This week, inevitably, we focus on the maiden Policy Address of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying. The CE's main priority was housing, although many of his propsals will not bear fruit util after this term of office and rent controls are - in his view - out of the question. The middle class say there's little in the Address for them. And there is even less for Hong Kong's sexual minorities, who had hoped for at least a consultation on rights for gay, lesbian and transgender individuals, and who are facing strong opposition from the more conservative religious groups.
