Questioning commitment to IT

It is indeed ironic that after my letter of complaint was published ('No homepage on the Internet', South China Morning Post, February 1), I received an e-mail message from Legislative Council President Andrew Wong.

I concluded from his late reply that, either he does not care for public opinion unless it is printed in your paper, or he does not regard e-mail as an important medium for communication. I should not be surprised that Mr Wong does not care for public opinion. His decision to join the provisional legislature shows his first priority is surely not the people of Hong Kong. If e-mail is not an important medium for Mr Wong, then I question his commitment to Hong Kong's information technology (IT) industry, which I hope every legislator is committed to.

Finally, Mr Wong still has not addressed the question in my original e-mail, namely, how does he justify the legality of the provisional legislature? Amazingly enough, one of Mr Wong's detractors, Libby Wong, does regularly answer her e-mail.
