Hong Kong’s Carrie Lam urges ‘no politics’ in vaccine rollout – whilst using Covid-19 for political means

Keep politics and “malicious rumours” out of the dialogue on the coronavirus vaccination programme, urges Carrie Lam, the Chief Executive in Name Only (CENO).

In a recent statement the government said, “the decision on procurement of vaccines is  based on the considerations of safety, efficacy, quality and supply, and does not in any way involve political factors.”

This is rich coming from an administration that has consistently inserted politics into the heart of the battle to combat the virus. It is the CENO who has used the virus as an excuse for postponing the LegCo election, for banning all public demonstrations and – in the early stage of the crisis – as an excuse for a shabby patriotic flag-waving charade involving the shipping in of a large number of mainland medical specialists for purposes never clearly identified.
