If there’s a clear evidence that Kim Jong-un has parted ways with his benefactors in Beijing, it’s his presence at the Occupy protest site in Admiralty last Friday.
But wait, is that really the North Korean dictator who has flown to Hong Kong to express his sympathy with pro-democracy activists?
Actually, the Kim Jong-un look-alike is a 35-year-old Chinese Australian who gives his name as Howard (no surname, please).
He said he understands why so many Hong Kong people feel frustrated with the electoral reform framework issued by the Chinese Communist Party, which will select the candidates that people will choose from.
Without public nomination, universal suffrage for Hong Kong is no different from North Korea’s election where the results have been decided by the government beforehand, Howard said.
And that’s the reason why he showed up in Hong Kong on Halloween night — to show that this whole electoral reform is just trick or treat. And the joke is on the Hong Kong people — unless they stand up to oppose the proposal, he said.
