Price to pay for being too loyal?

In the end, 21 loyalist lawmakers did call for a public consultation on the controversial by-election plan, before the government agreed to the climbdown. But many will pay for their initial objection, critics say.

Developing farce

The proposed compulsory sale of a half-century-old noodle factory in Sham Shui Po has turned out to be a huge misunderstanding. Officials are now saying that the owners do not need to surrender their property because the building is only 36 years old; the law only covers buildings that are 50 years old, or older.

Ip's groundless diatribe compares the incomparable

Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee's column, ('If the label fits', January 7) is filled with groundless and subjective diatribe.

First, Mrs Ip erroneously compares Hong Kong and Taiwan elections with elections in the United States saying in the former the arguments are ideological, while in the latter they are practical and concrete.

Regina Ip sleeps on noise problem

Legislative Council by-election candidate Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee spent last night in one of the noisiest flats next to the Mass Transit Railway track in Chai Wan.

She said she wanted to see if she could have a good sleep, and to experience first-hand the noise of MTR trains running on the elevated track that threads through the public housing estates in the area.

The 'great divide' blinds officials to Hong Kong's social problems

The difficulty some working parents have in caring for their children, as described by Ada Tse ('Parents need more help', October 1), is merely the tip of Hong Kong's iceberg of social problems. The increasing cases of child abuse reflect the lack of government education and guidance for parents.

Important issues at stake in Hong Kong Island by-election

It was a relief to me to learn that Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee has decided to stand for election for a Legislative Council seat.

Mrs Ip is level-headed and knowledgeable in politics and history, as well as experienced in governance.

She is one we can trust to stand for the good of Hong Kong and China, free of personal motivation.

Going for a cross-section

Workers for Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee's campaign are convinced that the conventional wisdom is wrong.

The belief that the pan-democrats will easily win 60 per cent of the votes in the Hong Kong Island Legislative Council by-election is untenable, they say, as their candidate will be able to garner the support of moderate voters in the constituency.

Thank God I don't live on Hong Kong Island. If so, I might next December be left in a chilling position; I could face a choice of voting for either Artful Anson or Regina the Rottweiler.
