Video captures Hong Kong lawmaker stabbing - BBC News 4.5

Pro-Beijing lawmaker Junius Ho is one of the most controversial politicians in Hong Kong, and has been heavily criticised by pro-democracy protesters.

Mr Ho was campaigning for an upcoming election when he was attacked by a man who appeared to pose as a supporter. The attacker was arrested shortly afterwards.

Video of the incident surfaced on social media and has been widely broadcast by Hong Kong news outlets.

Mr Ho and several others were sent to hospital with injuries. He later posted a message online saying he was fine and that he had suffered a superficial wound.

💬 Comments on the video

Is violence accepted ? The murderer was caught at the spot.

The murderer was caught, which almost proved to be a real assassination, not a farce directed by himself.

Facts below.

* From this video, after being stabbed, Junius Ho stated that my rib cage stopped the knife (so he can be still alive) and the attacker might be mentally ill (instead of accusing others of plotting this vicious attack).
* Rumors popping up about this attack being staged (If this attack is staged, should Junius Ho have condemned some people/opponents instead mental illness?).
* 85 metro stations damaged by rioters in Hong Kong (same day).
* British medias tried to blemish China's image zealously by taking advantage of the recent 39 passed away persons smuggled in by truck before the identities were even confirmed (now looks like all non Chinese).
* British university strips pro-Beijing lawmaker Junius Ho of honorary degree (just because of his pro Beijing stand?).

Who now has the higher moral ground? Which side does BBC/British medias want to be, being on higher moral ground or being as low as possible? Or, is it the case that, as long as claiming to be "pro democracy", anything is justified?

It is kind of painful to see the complete turn around on moral standards. Can any "movement" really win by going as low as possible morally?

I can’t believe some of these comments- if he wanted him to die, he should have gone for his throat? I mean, are you kidding me?! What we are witnessing here is a live attempt murder at a politician, a well known figure of HK society! You could say its an attempted assassination, for Christ sake! This is ridiculous- in a normal society, we shouldn’t be doing this in everyday life. It goes to show just how uncivilized HKers have become and how HK government needs to find a solution to end this corruptedness and unnecessary violence. It pains me everyday seeing HK descend further and further into chaos, all because of protestors who don’t know what they’re really fighting for.

Democracy means you can kill your opponents? For example Trump shooting Biden to win election?

I don't trust ANY of the MSM after Epstein. You're all evil.

The UK grew rich by looting the world; now it launders billions for other looters

The British empire was a globe-spanning criminal enterprise that produced vast riches for England (and, to a lesser extent, Scotland and Wales) by stealing the lands of others while slaughtering and enslaving them; today the empire is in decline and the UK is no longer reliant on direct looting.

Instead, the UK and its former colonies have become the world's most prolific money-laundry for other looters, servicing criminal oligarchs who steal from their own countries. The latest Corporate Tax Haven Index from the Tax Justice Network (previously) puts the UK and its overseas possessions firmly in the lead in the global money-laundry league tables.

The story is complex: many of the former colonies (now euphemistically termed "overseas territories" or "dependencies") were deliberately set up as financial secrecy havens during the decolonization process, a maneuver that provided British elites with a convenient way to hide their wealth from British authorities while creating (some) jobs on these "treasure islands."
