Vermin in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is possibly the most racist place – at least from the few that I have visited.

Most Hong Kong Chinese are the obnoxious – unlike the Singapore Chinese. But then Lee Kuan Yew says that the Singaporean is much more English than Chinese.

Here is another case of repulsive behaviour by the Hong Kong Chinese

advertisement in a Hong Kong daily branding Chinese as ‘locusts’ has evoked angry reactions in China amid growing resentment among people over rising mainland influence.

The Hong Kong-based Apple Daily carried a full page advertisement on Wednesday demanding the local government stop pregnant women from the mainland from entering Hong Kong, which enjoys status of special administrative region (SAR) after the former British colony was brought under control of China, 15 years ago.

The ad features a huge locust over Hong Kong’s skyline with a headline saying, “Do you want Hong Kong to pay $1,000,000 every 18 minutes to raise babies whose parents are not permanent residents here?” (via Chinese see red as Hong Kong advert terms them ‘locusts’ – The Times of India).
