When Luo Huining met with "community representatives" earlier, he said that the election of the Legislative Council was a serious one, stressing that "it is impossible for the opposition to seize more than half of the seats in the Legislative Council and seize governance power." The power of the Hong Kong Legislative Council is actually highly determined. Limited, not as good as Taiwan, but not as good as the United Kingdom. The so-called seizure of governance power certainly does not refer to separate seats, but to the addition of factors such as the Hong Kong and Macau systems, local chaebols, and the United States. For Beijing, the inability of its own people to control Hong Kong is equivalent to de facto independence. Even if they say they are patriotic, they are flying the red flag against the red flag. This year, the offensive against "Apple" and local chaebols will definitely turn fierce, and it will not stay until the fall. During the anti-extradition campaign, many of the original structures were loosened, and Beijing saw it as an opportunity to expand its power and promote the "return of facts" in Hong Kong. In this situation, the puppet government headed by Company banner design Carrie Lam actually only has an executive role. Recently, "Apple" published a confidential letter said to be written by Lin Zheng to Beijing, which mentioned that Lin Zheng believes that the epidemic is a good opportunity to counterattack. Carrie Lam should have not denied it so far, but in fact there is no need to deny it, because Luo Huining also said similar things at club gatherings, but said in a euphemistic and not so ugly way: "This time the fight against the epidemic is Hong Kong's turn from crisis to opportunity. , a great opportunity to unite society.” Therefore, Lam Cheng has not closed the customs, and it is probably also the first to put out the street demonstrations, and there is a political gap to deploy "the original and clear source". In China's overall situation, of course, Beijing wants the epidemic to end soon, but in Hong Kong's political time and space, the longer and more severe the epidemic, the better for Beijing. Only in this way can we explain the lack of closure and the deliberate ineffectiveness of epidemic prevention. However, Hong Kong has experienced the severe disaster of SARS in 2003, coupled with distrust of the government, and without government support, the epidemic prevention measures organized by the private sector have broken the table; the number of confirmed patients in Japan, South Korea, Iran and other countries has long surpassed that of China. bordering Hong Kong. In short, Hong Kong will not be peaceful this year. Street fights and political power struggles have been shown in succession, and the Chinese virus and local epidemic prevention are just the prelude to an upcoming power game.
