I got some pushback to my letter claiming that some pro-government voters had been scared off voting in the November District Council elections. “Where was the proof?” they asked. And true, it was hard to find online proof. All I had was hearsay.Regina Ip, long-term Legislative Councillor, makes my point today, rather forcefully. And online there’s a link to another story with pix of protesters vandalising pro-government candidates’ offices.
So, that’s some proof, right there.
I knew Regina back in my government service days. She’s one tough cookie. Hardline, pro-government, sure, but I’d trust her as a woman of sound integrity. When she lost the battle over Article 23, which she was in charge of, she didn’t complain. She resigned to take responsibility.
I’ve copied her letter today, below the fold. (With apologies for some of the weird formatting):
I refer to the letter from Professor C.K. Woo of the Education University of Hong Kong (“
