Do you Honestly Believe Hong Kong and China’s Relation is “Blood is Thicker than Water”?

無綫前記者黃大鈞:一直我都好反感將父子、母子、爺孫等倫理關係,套入去政治的層面。你以為真係血濃於水咩?如果你冇利用價值,早就收你皮。

Alan Wong: I object using the analogy of “Grandfather and Grandchild” to describe the political relationship between Hong Kong and China – Do you honestly believe that Hong Kong and China’s Relation is “blood is thicker than water”? If Hong Kong is of no use, China would have got rid of you long ago!

Individual Visit Scheme, Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect (SHKSC) and Dongjiang River water have been seen by many as “favours” and “gifts” China gave to Hong Kong. Even in the White Paper that China issued, which eliminated Hong Kong’s opportunity to have a genuinely democratic election, was written in similar tone. Recently, many Hongkongers worry that the cause of China to call off SHKSC was the Umbrella Revolution!

Alan Wong Dai-kwan, former journalist of TVB, quoted a senior executive at a financial institution that, SHKSC is the solution to Shanghai’s lack of ability to attract international capital. This executive also said that SHKSC is an important policy to China and could not have been easily changed by a movement.

Wong therefore thinks that Hongkongers should not regard China’s policies, including SHKSC as gifts or favours China give to Hong Kong out of good heart.
