[Global Times Special Correspondent Ye Lan in Hong Kong] Hong Kong opposition has brag about the popularity of "violent" shops (commonly known as "yellow shops") since the "revision of storm" in an attempt to create the "myth" of the "yellow economic circle". However, the Huangdian “Qianfang”, which is located in the trendy shopping mall in Mong Kok, announced that it will soon be closed, which proves that the so-called “yellow economic circle” boasted by the rioters for months is a self-deceptive joke.
"Huangdian" closed one after another
The so-called "yellow economic circle" refers to the "economic plan" put forward by some "yellow ribbons" in Hong Kong (that is, the popular and anti-government factions). Enterprises that claim to support the "yellow ribbon" values are united and refuse to go to the "blue ribbon" "(Supporting the Hong Kong Police), while the" Brave Force "further damaged the" Blue Ribbon "stores and warned customers of internal consumption.
According to Hong Kong's Ta Kung Pao report on the 8th, the "Senbo", which features Japanese-style teppanyaki, is a typical "yellow shop", and political propaganda notice boards supporting thugs are placed at the door. It is reported that the store is located on the fourth floor of the TOP Mong Kok shopping mall, which is a "pilgrimage" landmark for young people in Mong Kok. However, the "Thousands of Houses" Menkeluoque, many young people are through the door without entering.
The situation of "Qianfang" is just the tip of the iceberg in the "yellow economic circle." The Internet, which claims to have 2 million "yellow silk" support, is a flagship online store called "Light Time", which has been operating for less than 100 days. Recently, the store blew up on Facebook, "less than 100 orders per day, and even less than 50 in some days." The owner of the Gang Gang, a continental restaurant located on Beidi Street, Tokwawan, has been involved in the so-called "three strikes". However, the shop did not attract business because of this. Instead, traffic was paralysed because the mob repeatedly launched riots, and the citizens did not dare to eat on the street. It was declared closed two months ago.
Some netizens said that many "yellow shops" were poor in both food quality and staff service attitude. Sooner or later, the propaganda gimmicks in the "yellow economic circle" were closed sooner or later. Wu Boxiong, associate professor of the Department of Economics at the Hong Kong Baptist University, bluntly stated that the "yellow economic circle" would not succeed, because the "yellow shop" concept belongs to a niche market, and only seeks "yellow silk" for patronage. The competitiveness must be lower than the political spectrum that is not listed. A store of business strength. Zhang Yuren, a member of the legislative council of the catering industry, also said that the success of global restaurants is authentic, good service, value for money, and the geographical location.
"In fact, underworld extortion and extortion"
For several months, the "yellow consumer circle" has sparked fierce criticism from Hong Kong society. Shi Yongqing, chairman of the Central Plains Group, said that in the past, Hong Kong's consumption model was mainly free choice, and "yellow and blue" consumption behaviors based on political orientation and goals would only tear Hong Kong in the end and not have much economic benefit to society. . The Director of Commerce and Economic Development, Qiu Tenghua, said that Hong Kong believes in a free economy, relying on high-quality services and brands as a solicitation, and distinguishing the economy by color is a "painting ground as a prison" and cannot continue to operate. The ultimate victim will be "people in the circle."
A comment published on the Hong Kong Oriental Daily website stated that the "yellow economic circle" first aimed at mainland capital and commercial institutions with the participation or cooperation of mainland capital to make arbitrary and repeated disturbances, creating a climate of terror and a chilling effect. Secondly, to threaten other merchants verbally or in writing, to ask for support or donations, "Knowledgers" are safe, and those who dare to resist or do not cooperate will be disrupted or "decorated". Furthermore, the groups that have joined forces through the Internet and the "black storms" touting the merchants who support them are actually supporting the thugs with money. "It is completely against the principles, principles, and laws of economics, but is actually extortion by the underworld."
An article in Ta Kung Pao said on the 8th that "there is no egg under a black storm". Now is the era of the global village. No economy can be self-sufficient and self-contained. The "yellow economic circle" moves against the tide of the world. It is the way of destruction. "Huangdian" writes the so-called political demands into the menu or pastes it on the wall. It does not increase the nutritional content of the food; it is also impossible to turn the inferior dishes into delicious dishes by playing riot songs.
"Black Storm Movement" accused of entering the third stage
On the 7th, Liang Zhenying, vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, wrote on social media that the "black violence" has entered the third stage, and a large number of thugs were arrested and taken to court. They will also expose and abscond to each other for self-protection, plus more thugs. He will plead in court and ask for a reduction in sentencing to further combat "black violence" morale. He also criticized the "Apple Daily" executives and insurgents for eating "human blood buns". "To this day, we have not heard of Apple executives and panminans' heads waiting outside the police station for their children to bail, let alone Having heard these people go to court to support their children standing in the prison pen ", the so-called" He Yong family "are scams.
In a speech at the event on the 8th, the Financial Secretary, Chen Maobo, said that the social events and violent shocks in Hong Kong for several months have caused a heavy blow to the economy in the past six months, especially the tourism, catering and retail industries, and seriously damaged Hong Kong's international image. Looking ahead to 2020, Hong Kong's economy is in a situation of internal and external difficulties. Stopping violence and restoring social order are the keys to economic growth and re-starting Hong Kong. Back to Sohu, see more
