i am afraid the proposed roadmap is kinda complicated for me, maybe some others too.wouldn't it be simpler just to make no changes to legco election in 2012 and to expand the seat number to 100 in 2016 as proposed? It would be complicated to first add 11 new fc seats for currently non-fc voters to vote a second vote and then to wipe out these 11 fc seats and cut all fc seats back to 29 in 2016.beijing has said no change would be allowed for 2012 elections, i don't see there's much public urge for change either, except they want real democracy at the end of the day.the proposed changes for 2012 will add uncertainties to the reform package and the government will just make use of that excuse to attack the pan-democratic camp.the government will not budge and they have said it many times that their hands are tied by the npc's ruling.so instead of creating new issues for 2012, why dont we focus on making sure that the government and beijing would accept the proposed changes for 2016 and 2020 by threatening a veto of the reform package?that may sound overly simplified, but i think the public is in no mood for anything that may create endless debates.
ronny,i guess many would all appreciate your work.the problem is that - as the tyranny (in the original sense, the illegitimate government) is quickly tightening their stranglehold, do we actually have time to talk?and even if we can talk, would the hksar and ccp honour their words?with what happend to the basic law in mind, what are the chances of your proposal to succeed?regards,
we have no time. Chances are practically nil. But that will not stop us trying.
i see.since it makes sense to try all other measures before we go on to something more drastic, i wish you good luck.(however, i wouldn't call the resignation-relection-defacto referendum drastic. it is just a standard political tool with rich history and ample precedence.)
