Chan Chi-keung, 40, thinks the government should take a leaf out of the mainland's book when it comes to trafic lights ; From Quarry Bay to Tuen Mun ; Fare: $340 I know some taxi and minibus drivers will join a slow drive to protest against planned tougher penalties for running red lights today. I think the roads will be very congested, as the protesters will slow down as they approach green lights while others will stop altogether and wait for the red light to come and go before moving on. The transport workers' union is right to ask the government to install more traffic facilities such as flashing lights or installing a timer attached to every traffic light to inform drivers when lights will change. There is no way for drivers to make an accurate judgment, as we do not know when the lights will change, and the lights change very fast. I think the government should learn from the mainland where a timer is attached to every traffic light. I have been following news reports about the journalist, Ching Cheong, who is now under house arrest in Beijing. I think Hong Kong has to accept the fact that there is no 'One Country Two Systems'. It has never existed. We have to accept the fact that we can be locked up any time if we go to the mainland once mainland officers find a reason to do so. Everything related to politics is being classified as sensitive by the mainland government. The central government only welcomes outsiders to do investment there and make money there. But it will take action against those who are involved in political activities, and anything can be named as state secrets. We have to understand their culture in order to survive on the mainland, though we are supposed to be under the same country. When I watch television at my flat in Guangzhou, all Hong Kong television news programmes and news reports about sensitive issues like the Falun Gong, June 4 crackdown, Taiwan or even the results of Mark Six are barred. The mainland authorities stop airing those Hong Kong television channels and play advertisements instead. I felt very frustrated at first and I thought the mainland authorities treated us like we were idiots. But as time goes by, I know I cannot change it, so I accept it. But I always wonder how a government can act like that. I have watched a lot of news programmes about the June 4 crackdown in the last few days. I still feel upset about that. How could a government treat its people like that? I still remember Li Peng, the Chinese premier back then, who said: 'No one has died,' with his eyes wide open. He told lies to the whole world. I will never forget that. I think the working trend in Hong Kong has been strongly affected by the former chief executive, Tung Chee-hwa, who used to say: 'I always work long hours.' And he was once dubbed as 7-11, a convenience store that opens for 24 hours. I think he has set up a very bad example. He worked long hours, but he did nothing and was extremely inefficient. This also reflected his poor working ability. But now all bosses and employers are just like Mr Tung. They only focus on how many hours their workers stay in the offices, but never bother to find out who are the efficient workers. They even praise workers who just stay in offices for a long time and do nothing. I hope Donald Tsang Yam-kuen will do a better job. It is good that he will visit some places. He should take a good look at the life of the common citizens in Hong Kong and find out what they really need and how the government can help. But, of course, what he does is just a show, but it is better than doing nothing. He still works very hard for his campaign to prepare for the chief executive election, though it is obvious that he is being appointed by the Beijing government.
