"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well." -Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.

"Vote for the candidate who love the country and love Hong Kong". We give you the list who love both: University students of Hong Kong boycott classes for a week demanding right to choose

Today is the second day of boycott by the university students of Hong Kong demanding the most fundamental democratic rights, the right to choose. It is a prelude to the impending 'occupy central with peace and love' movement.  The basic law of Hong Kong holds out a promise to strive for universal suffrage. The package offered by Beijing is to freely elect from the practically vetted nominations by the Central Government.

Yes, but what are you actually saying here? Your overall underlying message is not at all clear.

Was trying to say,what is offered as electoral reform towards universal suffrage is a misnomer. True, I have not explained it in the post. I was making a satirical comment at what the Chinese Government said, " all registered voters get to vote to elect Chief Executive, but only from a nominated panel of two-three candidates" .
I would be posting a legal analysis of the electoral system of Hong Kong in two days. Today a related post, sans law is made.
