Well yes it does, and the city is Hong Kong, which I knew from reading the news earlier today.

Isn’t a bit rubbish to go for a clickbait headline with withheld information? For the cost of five more letters we could have had “Hong Kong ends mask mandate…”

Yes, it is a bit rubbish, but so is say, owning buildings and charging people rent to live in them, or charging say, 18% interest on credit card debt.

Good luck trying to reverse the prevailing winds.


And welcome to BB as well, sad but true
