INDEPENDENT Emily Lau Wai-hing got a bit carried away during Cable TV's free-for-all election forum when she took the seat of the United Ants' Law Yuk-kai. Supporters of Mr Law were left confused as to who was standing in the New Territories Northeast constituency when Ms Lau - impatiently waiting in the wings - appeared in his seat. Ms Lau, a sponsor of the United Ants, said yesterday she had not intended to take Mr Law's seat. But she admitted her mistake had helped to heat up the rather dull forum. As Mr Law left his seat in search of Ms Lau, she took to the platform, and grabbed hold of the microphone and his seat. Former legislator Tik Chi-yuen simply stood up to show his support for Democratic Party candidate Cheung Wing-fai. IT seems Miriam Lau Kin-yee, who is contesting the Transport and Communication Constituency, has taken a stand on whether it should be business as usual for taxi drivers when the typhoon No 8 signal is up. Her office issued a statement yesterday, saying she would be handing out pamphlets and meeting public vehicle drivers today at a number of taxi stations. '[The event] will not change for strong winds or heavy rain, only for the Number 8 signal,' her aides said.
