Calling Bill McGurn: How Bad Are Things in Hong Kong?
From today's Wall Street Journal:
In the minds of many Hong Kong residents, the handover to Chinese rule happened not in 1997, but last Sunday. That's when Communist Party General Secretary Hu Jintao swore in Leung Chun-ying as the third chief executive of the special administrative region. The entire ceremony was conducted in Mandarin Chinese, including Mr. Leung's inaugural speech—symbolism not lost on the Cantonese-speaking population. Mr. Hu even staged a Beijing-style military parade.
Bill McGurn, you spent a decade in Hong Kong. Is this the beginning of the end?
