Glass Tiger

Show notes

Glass Tiger are celebrating over three decades together with the release of 31their first new studio album since 1991. Produced by Johnny Reid, the new collection includes stripped-down takes on 11 favourites from the band’s back catalogue in addition to a pair of new songs. There are also guest appearances from an interesting bunch of collaborators including Julian Lennon, Alan Doyle, Susan Aglukark, Veronic DiCaire, David Maracle, and Johnny Reid himself.

Founding member Sam Reid joins us to talk about how the new collection took shape, how the band has stayed together through some significant industry ebb-and-flow, and more.

Plus, at the top of the show, Mike and Andrew talk about some industry reaction to the Liberal Government’s 2018 budget and reveal the top 10 best-selling international artists from 2017 with a guessing game.

The beautiful prophecy calls for the hearts of the people, but who will listen to the prophecies if the hearts of the people are turned away?

立場博客財政司長突然發表「香港營商環境報告」,有人視之為陳茂波司長參選特首的政綱,其實並非重點,反而整份報告由思路、主題到細節,跟北京在港喉舌報章的論述類同,反映北京統治香港的思維,特區財經領導班子已經全部「上腦」,其他人等遲早爭相效尤,北京往後挑選誰當特首,也就離不開其設定的管治路數和發展方針。 「營商報告」三部分,分別論述香港的過去、現在和未來。過去部分重複官方的論述,指責「黑暴」無法無天,美國又製造混亂,令香港於二〇一九年下半年陷入癱瘓狀態,但文中對於反政府運動愈演愈烈,半句不提特區當局錯誤修改「送中法例」是近由,北京收緊香港自治權是遠因,當然也絕口不提警暴和當局無視警暴所挑起的民怨和仇恨。 現狀部分大書特書《港區國安法》和改變選舉制度(「完善」選舉制度)如何為香港撥亂反正,令經濟回復正常,但通篇無視《國安法》下巿民對政府極不信任,公民社會遭到破壞,還有大量香港人因自由空間收窄而遷移外地,香港看來與不少第三世界無異,民間自由狀況被視作與營商環境完全無關。 最後是預告美麗新世界即將來臨。香港面向世界,只要發揮原有優勢,加上背靠祖國,勢必發展成為國際金融、商貿及總部中心,但香港在中美之間必定選擇前者,究竟影響何在(如美國不視香港為獨立關稅區),以至近年中美關係緊張又如何削弱香港的國際地位,報告同樣交了白卷。 官方宣傳物品主題先行,掛一漏萬,乃意料中事,但總不能自言自語,目中無人,否則效果只會適得其反。香港大約六成人支持反修例運動,更有四成人長期給予特首林鄭月娥的評分是零蛋,足見官民隔閡甚深。「營商報告」完全忽視這批社會主流市民,既無檢討政府對反修例運動的責任,也沒有獨立調查警暴,根本無法改變六成人的既有看法,而論調及述事不外搬字過紙,相信其餘四成人也覺得是陳腔濫調。換言之,黃絲市民認為政府只求粉飾自保,用官方論述代替事實,無意以真相修復官民關係,甚至擴大鬥爭對象的話,可把他們劃為敵人,隨時秋後算帳。 也許政府在意跟六成人修復關係,不過方法錯誤。政府想必胸有成竹,認定香港只要背靠國家便有無限機遇,定必走向黃金年代。因此,不接受政府的政治論述,不要緊,經濟可以壓到一切,美好「錢途」可洗掉政治記憶,大好經濟美景在前,大家倒不如努力營生,共同富裕,放下政治矛盾,就如八九民運後的中國大陸,當官方對民運的鎮壓武裝到牙齒,不少熱衷國是者趁第二次經濟改革,政治躺平,下海創富好了。 用經濟利益換取政權穩定,其他不說,首先絕對不能紙上談兵。十年後,香港會否如上世紀九十年代中國大陸那樣,經濟連年大幅增長,無人可以說得準。甚至今天特區政府鼓勵香港人到大灣區創業和就業,抽走了本地的資金和人才,究竟如何可以裨益香港經濟,也從未聽過特區官員提供經濟論據和分析。 當大灣區發展不見得可以推動香港增長,本港經濟現況也表現不俗(第二季實質本地生產總值增加7.6%、失業率減至4.7% ),而大灣區職位的吸引力在於特區政府補貼過半薪水,香港經濟仍滿有活力,是否有需要急速轉型,全面投向大灣區發度,實屬疑問。 奇怪的是,當一切還在籌劃之中,更難一口咬定大灣區就等於香港的烏托邦,從而中國大陸注定是香港一個未出現的黃金年代的恩主,也從而令黃絲香港人無法拒絕誘惑,只得思想繳械向錢看? 但在香港,政府用預言的美好世界換取民心,只能是一場誤會。當經濟奇蹟還未出現,政府要成功令香港人感到自己是奇蹟的受益人,必須有賴大量市民對政府言聽計從,但民望長期負數的特區當局,加上報告內容人云亦云、缺漏多多,政府除了可以確保「營商報告」順利面世,還可對市民期望甚麼? 原刊於自由亞洲電台陳茂波營商環境報告
