'Dirty, rotten, mongrel bastards': Farmer says he may not have closed if supermarkets passed on m...

China is drawing up a plan to replace Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam with an "interim" chief executive, the Financial Times reported, citing people briefed on the deliberations, which would bring to a close Lam's rule after months of often-violent pro-democracy protests.
This is the man who's sparked Hong Kong's months long crisis. He was speaking to the press outside a prison on Wednesday (October 23). 20-year-old Chan Tong-kai is a murder suspect, in a case the government used to push a hugely controversial extradition bill. That same bill drew millions onto the streets in June, in ongoing protests that have since morphed into wider calls for democracy, in the Chinese ruled city. But these escalating protests all started with the murder case. Chan is accused of murdering his girlfriend while in Taiwan, before returning to Hong Kong. And because of a lack of an extradition agreement between the two places, criminal suspects can't be sent back for trial. Police found no evidence of the murder in Hong Kong - so on Wednesday he walked free, having only served time for money laundering - which was the only crime they found him guilty of. Government officials said cases like these were making the city a haven for criminals. And used it to push through the extradition bill. It would have covered Greater China, including Taiwan, but also Macau - and - crucially the mainland. Opponents said it would have put them at the mercy of China's justice system, where human rights can't be guaranteed. After months of unrest the bill was reluctantly withdrawn. But the crisis has spiraled way beyond it. That takes us back to today, where Chan bowed and apologized to the family of his ex-girlfriend. He said he'd made an unforgivable mistake. And that he's willing to turn himself in to Taiwanese authorities. But - now Hong Kong and Taiwan are clashing over the next steps. Hong Kong authorities said he should be free to do so. But with no extradition treaty - they won't let Taiwan send a security escort for Chan's flight. Taiwan said this was - 'unbelievable.' So when, how, or even if he will stand trial in Taiwan remains to be seen. The last update from Wednesday is this: lawmakers formally withdrew the extradition bill in the city's legislature. But with protest slogans now calling for a revolution - Wednesday's eventful day in politics is unlikely to calm the unrest on the streets.
The Gauteng education department says the incident happened five months ago at Lewisham Primary School in Krugersdorp. However, Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi visited the school on Thursday after the video was circulated. In it, a Grade 7 pupil dressed in school uniform could be seen pulling a male teacher towards him, while a female teacher tried to reprimand the pupil. "Leave the teacher, leave the teacher" the woman screamed as she intervened. "Don't touch me man. You stink. Did you bath this morning?...... This rubbish," the pupil shouted as the male teacher walked away. The pupil then screamed at the woman, demanding that she let him go so he can leave. Lesufi has appointed an inter-departmental assessment team, comprising officials from the district, the Department of Social Development, the psycho-social unit, inclusion and special schools, and education support. The team is to conduct an assessment focusing on the pupil's well-being and his academic progress. It is to identify a relevant school for him. "The Grade 7 learner was at the time suspended and taken through a disciplinary process which recommended an expulsion. A process to interact with the child's parents has commenced. The appointed team must provide a report with appropriate recommendations to the MEC on December 11 for necessary action," departmental spokesperson Steve Mabona said. The department condemned the pupil's behaviour and said it had a zero-tolerance stance towards all forms of misconduct. "We urge learners to refrain from any acts of misdemeanour."
