Beast of burden
Who knew The Don could be so funny. He's complaining that being Chief Executive is such a burden during this election, although why the Standard's headline writer put the quotes over burden instead of election is anyone's guess. The result is already known, plans are already made for what The Don will do once he's really truly elected rather than a fill-in for Tung Che-wa and the 7 million Hong Kongers that don't get to vote pray this thing can be over and done with so the newspapers can go back to Canto-pop gossip and gruesome tales of murder.
It's news to all other politicians in the universe that being the incumbent is a burden. Luckily The Don is going to refund the cost of petrol and his security detail for his little trip to the electoral office in Wan Chai. This has now managed to occupy the press for days....and yet no-one seems interested in that other stuff of elections like policies and promises. Again, that's because it doesn't much matter - this isn't an election, it's a coronation.posted by Simon on 01.26.07 at 11:56 AM in the Hong Kong democracy/politics category.

Being a politician in Asia is always a burden. Have you ever tried to lift those bags of cash the cartels throw at them? It is a wonder the poor politicians don't suffer back damage.
Remember Don, lift the bribes with your legs, not your back.posted by: John on 01.29.07 at 10:56 PM [permalink]
