High quality production
very good show, as a youngster understand more about old HK and what had happened in the 90s
RTHK produces the best programs. As a young Hong Koner, I can learn a lot from its shows.
It is so interesting to review these old clips now and have one of the key actors at the time explain and give context to the behind-the-scenes negotiations that were taking place. The story at the end about how to resolve the seemingly diametrically opposed stances of the democrats vs the functional-conservatives over the composition of the Legco, as engineered by Arculli, was a classic fudge indeed. Unfortunately, I am extremely disappointed that our city's chances for universal suffrage, which had the best chance to be properly enshrined into law in the weeks and months after June 4th, was forever lost precisely because of this fudge, and all because the Liberal Party at the time (and indeed to the present day) was only thinking of its own members' interests rather than the wider interests of Hong Kong as a viable political entity going forward. Such biased short-sightedness is quite disappointing, but perhaps that is simply to be expected of a political party that had its own blinders on and see the bottom line as the only finish line, if one were to use racing as an analogy again.
Subtitle correction alert: Not "show your name in the hat" but "Throw your name in the hat"
thank you RTHK
With much appreciation
A great piece of work, HK Public Broadcasting Service.
Disappointing that Arculli gave a fudged answer towards the end about whether he feels pessimistic or optimistic about the judicial independence in Hong Kong in the face of increasingly overt interference from Beijing. Although Arculli mentioned the importance of having the right people in the right roles, he declined to link this principle to the principle mentioned by the interviewer at the outset regarding the argument that it is only through democratic elections could there be a realistic chance for appropriate people to be appointed to such publicly entrusted positions, preferring instead to deflect the question to the issue about lawyers' own personal and pecuniary motivations to become chief justices. At the very end, Arculli also pointed out that it was important to vote and participate in elections, stating the obvious importance of having your horse being in the race itself. However he again ignores the huge elephant in the room -- that it is precisely Beijing who has been blatantly preventing us from having any horses in the race that they don't already pre-approve of, and managed to get rid of anyone they don't like the look of without anything remotely resembling any form of procedural justice. It is a completely rigged competition and if this were a horse race the rules of Jockey Club would not have allowed such blatant race-rigging. But sadly in Hongkong a rigged election system is all we are ever going to be allowed to get from Beijing, which is in direct contravention of both the letter and spirit of the Basic Law agreed between the UK and China. Sadly, Arculli in his 80th year seem to be as full of the bullshit double-speak as the kind that he personally despised and pointedly objected to back in the 1990s he was still a conscientious policymaker in government.
It is a good video. Thank you
well proud of your colonial education eh? and gambling is the game bloodsucking parasites
