Now that Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen no longer has to worry about pandering to the people during an election, his true self has emerged - arrogant and sharp-tongued, pan-democrats said. During the Legislative Council's question-and-answer session, Mr Tsang painted the pan-democrats as grumpy, stubborn and impatient, urging Frontier lawmaker Emily Lau Wai-hing to 'let go of the temper' and independent legislator Kwok Ka-ki to smile more. Dr Kwok said Mr Tsang displayed an arrogance that was inappropriate of a chief executive. 'He was avoiding questions by trying to be clever,' Dr Kwok said. 'We had serious questions for him, and he gave them no respect.' Earlier 'Long Hair' Leung Kwok-hung was ejected from the chamber for presenting Mr Tsang with a carrot bearing the words 'minimum pay'. Frederick Fung Kin-kee, chairman of the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood, said Mr Tsang had developed a 'sharp-tongue, cutting people down left and right'. The legislator attributed this to the chief executive having no need to worry about another election. Lau Kong-wah, vice-chairman of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, thought it was good that Mr Tsang had developed the confidence to 'fight back', adding he had maintained a balanced tone. Acerbic witticisms were exchanged on the imminent green paper on political reform, with the pan-democrats accusing Mr Tsang of 'back-pedalling' on promises. 'There's no point in arguing all the time,' he said to Ms Lau. 'And there's no point in being so angry. Why are you angry? The angrier you are the harder it is to resolve the issue. You need to let go of your temper and discuss this patiently.' He had a similar message for Dr Kwok: 'If everybody keeps maintaining this attitude then we will never resolve anything. Here you say I'm 'deceiving citizens' ... there you say I'm 'back-pedalling' ... Let go of your temper, wear a smile more often. Use fewer personal attacks and less verbal violence and then we'll be closer to achieving our targets.' Mr Tsang said he hoped the session would be like a football match, where the teams shake hands after the game. Dr Kwok later said he was unable to shake his hand because Mr Tsang left surrounded by minders.
