  1. A clear sign of weakness and no support for her from the people.

  2. She did it later via video like a terrorist

    > Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has been forced to suspend her annual address after being heckled in parliament.

    > After the assembly was suspended, a pre-recorded speech was made available on the Legco website instead. In the address, Ms Lam stressed her commitment to "One country, two systems" – the parallel political system introduced in Hong Kong after British rule ended – and said calls for Hong Kong independence would not be tolerated.

    > Hundreds of flights from Hong Kong were cancelled that month after airport protests.

  4. > After a first interruption, the session resumed only to be interrupted again. It was then suspended – and Ms Lam delivered the address by video instead.

    > It means the extradition bill – the trigger for months of protests – could not be withdrawn formally.

    Yeah….was holding off until *after* the bill was withdrawn too much to ask?
