Anthem law the pan-dems’ Waterloo

16 0 0

The moral collapse of the pan-democratic opposition has been spectacular to behold. One clear sign of its sorry state is its general acceptance of the upcoming national anthem law. It has, basically, rolled over for the government.

Pan-dems once vowed to oppose the proposed law, which will make disrespecting the anthem a criminal offence and may be ready for the Legislative Council in the next few weeks. Now, though, barring a few diehard holdouts, the opposition will vote in favour of the bill.

It seems only yesterday that the pan-dems warned there was no place to apply such a national law to Hong Kong, which will make abusing or distorting March of the Volunteers punishable by a maximum fine of HK$50,000 and three years in jail. Of course, some will huff and puff along the way.........
