Categorically awful controlling on Friday. I was inbound mid afternoon. Complete confusion from the controllers. Confusing aircraft callsigns, useless vectors. My favourite was two aircraft holding at Abbey, to the south of the airway because the weather was impinging the north side. Another a/c arrives, told to hold NORTH of the airway at Abbey..! Pilot asks 'can we hold on the south side LIKE THE OTHER AIRCRAFT??? Hilarious....and a bit pathetic. The only restoration of sanity was the intermittent transfer of controlling to a 'gweillo' voice. Once order was restored, the local controller was back in the seat. HK...a world class airport...REALLY? There needs to be an inquiry. This is going to end in disaster one day.
