On parents and their children marching together against national education subject:
Philip Ho - Sunday's anti-national-education rally, with a huge turnout of 90,000 taking part, mirrored our outrage against its implementation in primary schools in September. The government should heed public demands. To withdraw national education for the time being in readiness for a city-wide public consultation is the only way to resolve the issue.
Bernard Ho - As a parent, I think the government so far has failed to convince me about the objectives of this new subject which are not in any existing subjects. I hope the debate could be about what this new subject is (rather than what it is not).
Sam Ho - The government should not have claimed that national education had the support of the vast majority. After all, a public consultation has not been conducted. And imposing its views on the people, the SAR government is becoming more and more like the mainland.
Almost HK$10m of taxpayers' money is to be spent refitting Government House for Chief Executive C. Y. Leung:
Gary C. Li - For HK$10m, Leung could turn that place into a museum and build a much smaller (and modern) official residence.
Ping Yuen-yu - Perhaps, C.Y. wants to make it more oriental. At least a few temporary jobs are created.
Letitia Wong - He is no different than Donald Tsang! And govt house is Hongkongers' property not Leung's residence. Any major modification of that property should gain public approval first through Legco.
