Hong Kong and World Car Free Day

The news (and Private Beach) reported how HKSAR Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen took part in the global car-free campaign on Wednesday 22 September by shunning his chauffeur-driven limousine - and walking to work.

So instead of taking his usual chauffeur-driven limousine, good old Donald decided to take his chauffeur-driven umbrella to work.

Furthermore, it appears his brolly is attached with all the latest mod-cons such as a standard-issue police pistol, satellite mobile phone, cigarette lighter plus a very handy suit jacket stand.

What more can our privileged chief executive want? Apart from his limousine, that is.


  1. Donald has to carry his own pens though. How unfortunate and embarrassing.

  2. Thanks Anon. It would have been too much for the public had Donald insisted on another lowly assistant to carry his stationery. However, it is a mystery why no toady was present to do the boot licking, er, carrying for him.

    Or are chauffeurs expected to polish boots too ... as well as the rest of the limousine? Lol.
