Trying to Clear the Air

Perhaps Jasper Tsang is finally talking some sense following CY Leung?
Is Jasper Tsang Yok-sing the next to go after James Tien Pei-chun?

The Legislative Council President and pro-establishment lawmaker says there aren't any "foreign forces" influencing the Umbrella Movement. "I can't see it happening," he said in an interview with Cable TV.

"Unless you treat foreign diplomats expressing concerns as an intervention by external forces. I think their concerns, raised objectively, were not intended to influence, dominate or instigate any side," he said.

Earlier this month Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying claimed "external forces" influenced the mass protests and occupation of streets in Hong Kong, but he refused to identify them, only saying he would reveal them later.

One newspaper cartoonist drew the suggestion it was Mary Poppins.

Others said it was Jesus, Che Guevara and Bob Marley, with photographic evidence of their images at the protest sites.

So will Tsang be punished for his comments, claiming there are no external forces involved in the Umbrella Movement because he's not following the same narrative as Leung?

The drama continues.
