Hong Kong’s incoming leader Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor lavished over HK$2 million on her 80-member campaign team in the run-up to the chief executive election on March 26, although it failed to ensure her a smooth ride.

Is Hong Kong’s much-hyped cruise terminal a white elephant of an underused facility that resembles a ghost town more than the bustling hub for luxury tourism it was billed as? That was the kind of picture painted by the city’s official auditor on Wednesday as it revealed that few ships were anchoring at the HK$6.6 billion Kai Tak Cruise Terminal and passengers were hardly spending money there. The terminal’s two berths were both occupied for only five days during its peak...
