"Don't beat around the bush on universal suffrage" - Margaret Ng

Margaret Ng wrote in the South China Morning Post:
"Summer means interns from overseas. This summer, I have one from England, one from Beijing and one from the United States. All of them are interested in watching the progress of democracy in Hong Kong. All were astonished by how much the Government can get away with. They were also astonished at how much work democrats like myself have to put in and how little result we can hope to achieve. They helped me to put together with 100-odd amendments to the "spy bill" and did great research into the law and practice of other countries. These bright young people frankly do not think we have a fair political system in Hong Kong."
