HKG quarantines 130 cargo pilots....

130 pilots placed in the cooler Penny Bay correctional facility, for 21 days "detained at Her Majesty's pleasure" They are damn scared to upset big daddy.. he might take away the opening again and again.

AFAIK that 130 number isnít the correct figure. Itís a big number though, enough to realise the joke of a situation we are enslaved in.

Breathtaking hypocrisy from the Chinese Government representative. I thought it was was just the office workers and management who regarded Cathay pilots as scum, but its everyone from the government down. What a dreadful place to be.

All visitors to Hong Kong are equal, but some visitors are more equal than others.

In other news,

"Faster vaccination of the elderly and booster doses in focus as country seeks way out of strict pandemic controls... ....Hence, China is seeking to boost its vaccination drive with the hopes of building herd immunity as part of conditions to relax its tough zero-Covid control measures."

"China has approved trials for the use of a domestically developed mRNA Covid-19 vaccine as a booster shot — a development that could widen the options for China’s vaccination campaign... ...China has approved trials for the use of a domestically developed mRNA Covid-19 vaccine as a booster shot — a development that could widen the options for China’s vaccination campaign."

It will be too late when they finally do find their way out of this corner they have painted themselves into. Many people and companies already leaving. But perhaps, that’s in their view desirable.

Fedex shutting down its HKG base:

Already too late. Curried Lamb is a muppet and will be remembered as the lady who sealed the death knell for HK. The only redeeming feature is that she has nowhere to fly away to now that most countries have banned her from entry.

FedEx shutting down in Hong Kong

Keep watching the "real" news and FedEx will just be the first in a tsunami of corporations, head offices, banks & retail outlets to RUN from the new ground zero of totalitarian manipulated communism that is Hong Kong...
It used to be the "gateway" to China; it's now the flush lever on the toilet !!!
