Everyone's talking about democracy. They all want more of it. Voting for politicians, it seems, means all dreams will promptly come true. Cloudy skies will turn blue. Jobs will mushroom. Children will behave. Dogs will not bark. Taxi drivers will carry maps. All problems will be solved when we get to vote for 60 Legco members and the chief executive.

Self-criticism?

I thank Exco Member C. Y. Leung ('Why I challenged Emily Lau', March 11) for informing us that his view of Emily Lau Wai-hing's unwise Taiwan trip is not influenced by election politics. Why expend so much effort to simply prove her 'wrong'?

Emily Lau's ideals

I refer to the letter headlined 'Vote for Xinjiang?' (March 5), which tries to link legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing to the Xinjiang separatist movement.

Correspondent Maurus Seet makes a basic mistake. One can support an ideal, such as independence or self-determination, without supporting the more radical or illegal organisations that purport to do the same.

Vote for Xinjiang?

I refer to the article headlined 'Democracy should decide Taiwan's future: Emily Lau' (February 26).

Legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing said: 'As I said in the 1980s, Hong Kong's future should be decided by its people. Be it Tibet or Xinjiang, if there were such wishes, we should find out why. It should be decided in a democratic way, not by military suppression.'

To quote the chocolate bar ad, it was the little bubbles of nothing that made it really something.
