  • Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam refuses to answer questions during a heated media conference in which she defended the police crackdown on pro-democracy protesters. The leader ignored repeated questions about whether she has the autonomy to withdraw the extradition bill that has sparked more than two months of protests, claiming she had already answered the question. Asked about police brutality she said the police had had 'a very difficult time' enforcing the law and had to make on the spot judgments. Lam is heckled as she leaves the media conference.

    She should tell the reporter that " Are you nut? Never in the history of China an appointed official by Beijing old guard has ' real ' authority over its territory; SAR or otherwise. I am just a watch dog placed inside HK to make sure every official sing and dance along with emperor Xi tone and report back. It doesn't require ' autonomy '.

    I came here wondering if Hong Kong's government had the power to make this kind of decision on their own, its pretty clear to me that this lady is a pawn, or just wants to look like a pawn.

    I've seen many politicians dodge questions.... but not to this degree. She couldn't have made it more obvious.

    This carrie lam is so one dimensional, She's in charge but can't defuse the situation. Obviously she's more of a mainlander than a Hongkonger and things are going to become even more difficult and explosive.

    Sorry, she is not a leader at all.
    Historically, a lot of people died when a leader sucks.
    Don't act stupid. People around the world are watching.

    One demand from the protesters is that Carrie Lam must withdraw the bill. But Lam has said many times that the bill is DEAD. Which is stronger? From my perspective, if the bill is dead, it cannot be alive again. But, if the bill is withdrawn, it can be resubmitted when things cool down. Note that you can’t bring anything or anybody DEAD back to life!

    She is an absolute disgrace to Hong Kong stability! She keeps dodging questions; she strikes the press and the public as an arrogant, incompetent, a lousy leader with no backbone.
