On Liberal Party leader James Tien's view that Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying is doing a worse job than his predecessors:

Vincent Kwong - He has fixed more social problems and spent more time with the public than Donald Tsang. He has also [pledged to build] more buildings than anyone before. Which part has he done worse?

Law Hin Lau - If Leung stays in office for another few years, Hong Kong will be even worse than Macau.

Douglas Yang - James Tien is all talk. If he's so sure about his judgment calls on the current chief executive, why doesn't he propose a better candidate?

Patrick Shu Wing Lee - James Tien may have the ambition to run for Hong Kong's chief executive if C. Y. Leung goes. Whoever replaces C. Y. may not be able to govern without the co-operation of the civil service and support of the people of Hong Kong, especially if the chief executive is not elected through genuine universal suffrage.

Eric Choi - In James's mind, his buddy, Henry Tang, is always the best choice of chief executive. Give me a break.


On calls for Hongkongers to be less wasteful:

Cory Pchajek - Over-consumption is a big, big problem in HK. I've been to countless dinners where people order ridiculous amounts of food just because people want to try as many dishes as possible. There's a destructive obsession with variety in HK.

Mike Brooks - HK is one of the most wasteful cities on earth.

Lutz Kleinau - Rethinking the packaging of all those drinks sold at 7-Eleven would be a start. And to develop a washing-up culture rather than handing out disposable cutlery even when it's not takeaway. (And I don't mean hiring 80-year-olds to do the dirty work!)

Sean Niem - A good start to reduce food waste is to make buffets illegal.
