Let that be a lesson on proposing a question Donald Tsang Yam-kuen and Wong Yuk-man are scarcely soulmates. But the chief executive and the chairman of the League of Social Democrats do, it seems, have some common ground when it comes to turning their wrath on the media. We're not sure whether Wong had Tsang's October 'fabrications and vicious attacks' speech in mind when he rounded on reporters yesterday but it was quite a performance. What made 'Mad Dog' mad were reports that he had proposed the pan-democrats vote down the political reform package before staging their 'resignation for referendum' act, ensuring they were all in the chamber for the crucial vote. Wong didn't even wait for a press conference the league had called to 'clarify' his comments but waylaid reporters in the corridor outside his office. 'How can one believe in newspapers?' he screamed. 'Have I ever said that what I mentioned was a proposal? All newspapers have their own agenda and I will never talk again.' So who should take responsibility for the 'misunderstanding', which is what league deputy chairman Andrew To Kwan-hang said it was? 'It has nothing to do with us. It is their own mistake in having this misunderstanding,' said To, who produced an MP3 audio clip that he said proved Wong was only asking a question, not making a proposal. To said other pan-democrats had been naive in rushing to comment on a proposal that didn't exist. That answer apparently failed to convince Democratic Party elder Szeto Wah, who has been locked in a war of words with Wong over the past few days. 'Who knows whether Wong Yuk-man will change yet again in a couple of days,' Szeto said. 'He has just done away with his personal image.' Pan-democrats refuse to bite Will the visit by State Councillor Liu Yandong to Hong Kong over the weekend to officiate at the East Asian Games be a chance for Beijing to extend a sign of goodwill to the pan-democrats, busy battling among themselves over their strategy towards the government's constitutional reform proposal? Not likely, according to both officials and pan-democrats, although an official dinner is being planned for athletes, which might also include social and political figures. 'What is the point of seeing her when the central government will definitely not offer any concession over universal suffrage at this stage?' Civic Party lawmaker Ronny Tong Ka-wah asked. 'Just having dinner is meaningless.' How to stop toilet blockages from leaking First it was the blocking of toilets on Cathay Pacific flights. Now the news of any similar mishaps in future will also be blocked - although not, we assume, by the same substances. In his latest weekly memo to staff, director of flight operation Nick Rhodes said he was 'no longer able to share too much information' with his colleagues after his report of a series of mysterious toilet blockages on its Airbus fleet was leaked to the Sunday Morning Post last week. 'We will just have to explore other forums to share the news - maybe the chief pilots' newsletters,' Rhodes wrote. So how much further can the airline go to prevent passengers finding out about such fundamental matters? Perhaps doing away with the 'occupied' signs could be the next step?
