This is classic. Where's our champion of freedom and democracy guy? AKA the guy from the B-Team.

Isn't it freedom of choice these judges wanting to work in Hong Kong. Yet British government can some how curtail that freedom?

Personally, I think it's for the best that Hong Kong stop these foreign judges. But I had always thought the backlash from the west would be: "look at big bad authoritarian China stopping freedom. Blah blah blah".

So isn't it great that this Rabb idiot is going to do the work for China! It's a win win for Hong Kong and China!

As usual, my Chinese is not good (shameful, yes I know), but those are district councillors?

Yes. They are chairman or deputy chairman of their district. The most notorious of the four is the bad bitch on the bottom right. Who represent a district in Hong Kong island itself. The guy in bottom right represent Yuen Long (The district a certain member keeps harping on about triads). The girl on the top represent shum shui po. A district I grew up in. The top right guy represent Saigon district.

Perhaps you should take up Chinese class. I know it's a difficult language to learn. But if you could learn it, you won't regret it.

I can read some, that’s why I could understand they are councillors (Sai Kung, not Saigon, maybe if it was Joshua could be).

Problem is the only Chinese literature I am exposed to on a regular basis are menus, lol. I learned Chinese (Cantonese) for many years actually. The problem is that to really be skilled, you have to force yourself to do something like read the news in Chinese. However, then since it is only my second language in a literacy standpoint, I need to look things up in the dictionary, and it becomes too much of a chore over reading English news. I’m fairly confident that my skill would be considerably improved if I moved to HK/China.

Funny story, one time going to dim sum with my cousin and some friends. My friend handed my cousin the menu, but she couldn’t order a thing. Problem was that she knew all the dishes’ names in Chinese, but couldn’t read them. The English names were unhelpful like “pork dumpling”. Could be 燒賣, 鍋貼, or some other 餃子. It was probably the most clear example of being stuck between worlds I’ve ever witnessed. 有飯吃, good enough right? lol
