It’s good to see that the Hong Kong Government doesn’t rest, come rain or shine, summer or tsunami, financial or otherwise. In the middle of the biggest threat to mankind, (so far) Porcine-borne Coughing and Some Fever, our dear bureaucrats keep beavering away in their little warrens, thinking out ways to create jobs.
No place is too remote, no job too small. Just take the example above: Inferior picket construction near beach.
Problem: Picket fence running along railing to keep out (?) or keep in (?) campers at Pui O Beach. Each individual picket before screwed straight onto metal railing by means of drilled holes/screws. Job finished at least a year ago.
Solution: Removal and disposal of perfectly fine pieces of wood, railings getting wooden planks running along them, now new and newly painted picket fence can be hammered directly onto wood.
Job Creation Success: Two men for three days.
No one can say these people don’t take job creation seriously; they’ve even removed the sign saying No Kite Flying, No Playing, No Throwing Of Sand etc.
Let’s hope this particular removal is only temporary, for if the sign is not there, who knows what crazy things, running and what not, the wild anarchic Hong Kong people will get up to on the beach? And maybe re-concreting it will take another one man several hours worth of created job.
Hooray for job creation! It really, really works.
