Hongkongers have given their city its highest marks for freedom, public order, honesty and judicial impartiality since the handover, a University of Hong Kong study has found. But the score for fairness dropped significantly from 5.9 out of 10 in the previous poll in mid-October to 5.52. Equality dropped from 6.18 to 6.15. Increases were seen in the ratings of the 13 other categories. Freedom scored the highest with 7.54, followed by civilisation, public order and corruption-free practices with 7.24, 7.18 and 7.07 respectively. 'Hong Kong people seem to be feeling good,' said Robert Chung Ting-yiu, director of the university's Public Opinion Programme.
