Should immigration rules be changed to let well-educated mainland parents with locally born children live and work in Hong Kong?

Jane Lam - Define 'well-educated.' I've got a BA (hons) degree and a TESOL [teaching English] cert. and no one's given me a job thus far. Amazing what being a mainlander can get you. I'm sure they don't even need to be educated to get a job, they'll just turn up.

Harminder Singh - If they have the skills HK needs and can support themselves, absolutely. However HK should also be more open to immigrants from other countries. Asia's world city remember? Or is that just an empty slogan?

Betty Elledge - Maybe a workable idea if the qualification is based on the contribution and the expertise of the immigrants, and provided Hong Kong needs such skills. On President Hu Jintao's calls for the new chief executive to unite Hong Kong:

Philip Ho - It is a great pity that President Hu did not see the real Hong Kong's institution - our annual 7/1 protest. Hu should have stayed a bit longer to see and feel it himself.

Patrick Shu Wing-lee - Although C. Y. Leung, the new CE, has had doubts cast on his integrity, it is unfair to put all the blame on him as many mistakes were made by Donald Tsang who should not be let [off] so easily. There is an accumulation of grievances. C. Y. should by now realise what he should do, admit his faults and prove his worth by winning the trust of the people of Hong Kong.

Philip So - It's disappointing that President Hu flew out of Hong Kong 3 hours before the mass protest began. What was the hurry? On the new chief executive's government:

Nic Tinworth - Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
