Hong Kong Chief Executive and People’s Republic of China Senior Employee Carrie Lam claims that her Extradition to the PRC Bill is “dead.”
However, the subheadline says it all:
We hope people will not read a different meaning just because we are using a different word
She continues, after all, to refuse to explicitly withdraw her bill. “Trust me.”
The people of Hong Kong are right to be…skeptical. Lam really does need to go, as do most of her subordinates down through several layers of her hierarchy, but PRC President Xi Jinping is unlikely to permit it.
