Citizens must make their views known over irresponsible filibuster tactic

Peter Lok's letter ('Some voters love bad behaviour', May 14) explained why the legislative filibuster could work in Hong Kong. But an overdose of this tactic has backfired.

Basic Law's promulgators did not mention indirect elections

I refer to Peter Lok's letter ('Indirect election a valid system', February 2).

Rather than 'people like (me)' trying to 'weasel' (my) way 'into equating 'universal suffrage' with 'direct elections' ', I am seeking to ferret out an idea of our 'ultimate aim', rather than to keep badgering the secretary for constitutional affairs.

Universal suffrage means voting rights for people, not 'functions'

Tsang Yok-sing ('Equality test', January 15) and Peter Lok ('Direct elections not the only way to achieve universal suffrage', January 16), are wrong to assert that functional constituencies should have a role in our legislature and that they fit with universal suffrage.

The human principle underlying universal suffrage cannot allow companies to elect legislators.

What is to be gained from further rallies?

What further response from the chief executive do the participants of the July 1 march and July 9 rally - and another rally planned today - expect? Dismantling of the administration and direct elections?

Even if 500,000 marched on July 1, it could not represent the majority opinion and the significance of it was and is arguable at best.

Flight details

FOR the first time I find myself in agreement with Peter Lok, director of Civil Aviation, in his letter headlined 'The full story' (South China Morning Post, April 4). He is correct that the published schedules only partly reflect the full story of the use of Kai Tak airport.

Early date in sight for lifting flight restrictions

RESTRICTIONS limiting the number of morning and evening flights at Kai Tak airport could be lifted as early as the end of the year, Civil Aviation Department director Peter Lok Kung-nam said yesterday.

More time slots are needed after 336 flight requests per week this summer were turned down. Saturation has been reached except in the early morning.
