...taking bets on which pPrat from C.......y would go on PPRuNe and blame ATC for the weather.
Not blaming ATC for the weather. I'm blaming ATC for their complete deer-in-the-headlights response. Aircraft declaring emergencies, no answer. Putting aircraft on vectors to no-where. These guys behave like the weather suddenly appears on top of HKG airport. Don't HKG ATC have anyone whose sole purpose is to spot this weather moving in and proactively put a plan in place, like alternate arrival corridors and holding?

Coupled with the crappy forecasts from the HK Observatory it is downright dangerous.

But I'm sure that would require someone actually making some tough decisions. I don't think that is allowed in this country, is it??
