DAB legislator finds sensual diversion from political debate

While impassioned speeches boomed in the halls of Hong Kong’s Legislative Council on Wednesday, one pro-Beijing lawmaker decided he’d had enough of the marathon debate on political reform and decided to take a break.

And so as his colleagues argued about the government proposal for the 2017 chief executive election, Wong Ting-kwong of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong (DAB) was caught by media watching a video of a sexy woman on his smartphone, Apple Daily reported on Thursday.

In the video clip, a scantily clad woman is seen lying on a pool table while a male player shoots billiard balls around her and manages to pocket them all in an amazing display of skill — and concentration.

Wong said he simply opened a video link sent by a friend through WeChat.

He stressed that he was only watching the player’s admirable skills on the pool table and was not minding the woman at all.

“I like playing pool and I was bored so I just clicked to see [the video],” he told reporters.

That’s understandable. Political talk could perhaps get tiresome at some point — no matter how important it is to Hong Kong’s future.
