Today on Morning Brew, Comrade Vines returns at 10.10 with the best of the worst. This week: Has the CE gone all "end of term", amid calls of "CY, tear down this wall". Basically "no" was his response to a request to open Civic Square to the public again, accompanied by locking himself in his bedroom for a bit and refusing to eat his dinner. Government security measures couldn't be any higher these days, as two guys put their fist through the window of an official's car two days ago and lifted a laptop from the back seat with the words "nick me" painted on it in fluorescent pink. And, two "would have been" Youngspiration legislators have been arrested on the rather complicated charge of "getting right up our nose". After 11.30 our MB Vet Dr. David Gething will return to talk about arthritis. At 12.10 we welcome author and poet Viki Holmes, to talk about her new poetry collection: Girls' Adventure Stories of Long Ago. Hong Kong's most accomplished bender...and stretcher, Chris Watts will be back with us at 12.40 to talk about faulty movement patterns, and other assorted painful stuff.

Today on Morning Brew, it's our Thursday thing with Steve Vines at 10.10. In the funny pages this week: Two days ago, with an excitement level that would make your average stamp collecting society AGM look like July the 4th at the Playboy Mansion, HK's Chief Executive hopefuls engaged in a televised debate. Long story short, John asked Carrie if she was aware of all the dislike emojis on her Facebook page, Carrie said "What's Facebook", and the Judge looked out the window a couple of times, hoping they would be serving chocolate biscuits in the interval. Also, like that rather embarrassing social disease that keeps coming back, the issue of National Education seems to have reared its paranoid head again. But, parents have "nothing to worry about", possibly other than whether or not they can afford to get their kids into an international school PDQ! At 11.40 our tame MB vet Dr. David Gething will be in the studio to answer any of your furry questions and tell you about a goldfish that got shipped overseas in an Evian bottle. After 12.30, we'll find out all about pro level...beer pong...here in Hong Kong. We meet the founder of the Beer Pong World Series, Billy Gains, who's here this week from The States.
