They give the public a chance to see what the four consortia bidding for the design-and-build project have put forward.

Great shuffle forward

IT'S 6AM ON a humid summer morning in Shanghai. Much of the city is still asleep, but Zhongshan Park in the Changning district is already a hive of activity.

Callers jammed the switchboard of Commercial Radio's Teacup in a Storm, with most saying that an apology would not restore Antony Leung's credibility.

What the Talkabout callers said


Mr Choi: I supported you in the past but you have leaked a confidential government document. You have betrayed Hong Kong and the country.

Mr Ho: I question whether you are qualified for politics in future. You have no credibility at all. What you are suffering today originates from that woman.
