On religious group inviting the Dalai Lama to Hong Kong:

Tinyan Lee - No worry, the HK Immigration Department will block his way with "no comments on individual case".

Wendy Yap - I always wonder why China a superpower is still afraid of an old monk.

Bjorn Berg - A real test for "one country, two systems".

Marcus H. Langston - Great news. I hope C.Y. will meet him on the red carpet at the airport.

Eric Choi - I don't see why Hong Kong has to bear the burden for defending the freedom of speech for somebody else like Falun Gong or the Dalai Lama or many others. Not that I am indifferent to their suffering, we have lot of domestic problems to deal with now.

Arnau Prieto - Hong Kong should defend freedom of speech. I recall the saying: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."


On the influx of mainlanders to HK universities:

Winnie Wong - No complaints from Hkers when HK was still a colony. Any Brit could come to work in HK not requiring a work visa. Now all these complaints about fellow Chinese mainlanders. Reverse racism.

Fu-Min Chu - They should raise the enrolment standards if they want to reduce the number of mainland students. On the contrary, I actually think if they raise these standards, it would reduce the number of Hong Kong students.

Will Lung - And it's even more unconvincing to have lecturers from China to teach students from China at university. Have got no idea why tertiary institutions in Hong Kong are meant for parties from China.

Lydia Xu - See how much students from mainland have paid to all the universities in HK and most of them will go back to find a job instead of staying here.
