Despite a colour scheme chosen because it suggests calm and vitality, the policy address fanned flames of rage among three League of Social Democrats lawmakers yesterday, who were ejected from the legislature. Last year, Donald Tsang Yam-kuen, wearing a gold bow tie with a matching handkerchief, delivered a golden policy address in which he expressed full confidence in Hong Kong's economic future. Yesterday's light-green theme seemed to create the opposite of the intended sense of calm. League chairman Wong Yuk-man even hurled a bunch of bananas across the chamber during the chief executive's address, before telling the Legco president to 'shut up' and briefly refusing to leave. Earlier, League member Leung Kwok-hung interrupted the address by questioning whether the chief executive knew the price of a banana. 'If you don't even know the price of this banana, what right do you have to speak about livelihood issues?' Mr Leung said. He was allowed to briefly confront Mr Tsang face to face before being led from the chamber. The tempers of the two other League members flared when Mr Tsang mentioned the old age allowance. In his address, Mr Tsang said he agreed 'that the proposed level of HK$1,000 for the old age allowance is reasonable', but did not pledge to adopt the suggestion. League member Albert Chan Wai-yip asked Mr Tsang to clarify his stance. 'Have you, in fact, rejected this proposal then?' Mr Chan asked. Mr Wong also erupted, smacking his hands on his desk before pointing at the chief executive: 'Donald Tsang, you have shamed yourself in front of the elderly. This policy address is empty. Donald Tsang is incompetent, the Hong Kong government is incompetent,' he said. Legco president Tsang Yok-sing tried to calm the situation, but Mr Wong told him: 'You shut up. Are you a Communist Party member?' As Mr Wong was led out of the chamber, he threw another bunch of bananas, which hit the president's dais. Mr Wong said afterwards: 'People should get used to it [radical action], and don't be so conservative.' He warned that he was only getting warmed up for more dramatic action in future. Further shenanigans are expected today during a question- and-answer session, with Mr Wong pledging to give Mr Tsang a lesson in political philosophy. Executive Council convenor Leung Chun-ying said: 'Such actions not only break the rules of procedures of the Legislative Council, but also the rules of all legislative bodies in civilised and developed societies. 'It will not help the atmosphere, the work of Legco, social harmony or Hong Kong's international image.' In a media briefing afterwards, Mr Tsang said improving communication required effort from both sides. 'When you are behaving like Wong Yuk-man today, it is very difficult to communicate, but I will continue to listen to his views,' he said.
