行政首長答問大會型爆回應

Er… 我唔係講緊香港特首…

聽PMQ仲多過自家立法會,真係好精彩。以下 Quote 來自 28.10.2015 既 PMQ,Link 係最底。

講Cut福利開支。「係呀,我係Cut福利呀,咁唔係Cut咩呀?教育呀?房屋呀?你講吖!」

The Prime Minister (6:50) : It is an important point because every penny we do not save on welfare means savings we have to find in the education budget, the policing budget or the health budget. My second point is that because of what has happened in the other place, we should of course have a debate about how to reform welfare and how to reduce its cost. I am happy to have that debate, but it is difficult to have it with the hon. Gentleman because he has opposed every single welfare change that has been made. He does not support the welfare cap; he does not support the cap on housing benefit; he does not think that any change to welfare is worth while. I have to say that if we want a strong economy, if we want growth and if we want to get rid of our deficit and secure our country, we need to reform welfare.

被對家質疑是否要取消 Infant free school meals,除左反駁「記憶中我冇講過」之外,仲可以咁答。

The Prime Minister (18:15) : I am immensely proud that it was a Government I led that introduced that policy. In 13 years of a Labour Government, did they ever do that? [Hon. Members: “No!”] Do we remember an infant free school meals Bill from the Labour party? [Hon. Members: “No!”] No. I am proud of what we have done, and we will be keeping it.

其實只係一堆自誇既廢話,但個種自信真係充滿魅力,好似開show咁鼓動大家一齊嗌 No!

稍稍 Off Topic,我覺得議會發言人個樣好Q,講野好扺死。正正經經控制左秩序,最後加多句︰係呀佢好鬼唚,大家忍耐下啦。

Mr Speaker (10:40) : Order. I said a moment ago that the answers needed to be heard; the questions need to be heard as well. The hon. Gentleman is going to ask his question, and it will be heard. If it takes longer, so be it.

 

不過,係我心目中,史上最型既回應係呢個:

MISS CHRISTINE LOH: Mr Governor, my question relates to the agreements. Even if those agreements were to show that the British Government had compromised the promise to Hong Kong people of Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong and a high degree of autonomy, would you and the British Government now be prepared to give us back that promise?

 

THE GOVERNOR: Well, since I do not accept the premise, it is difficult to answer the question, except to repeat what I have said already. I am obliged to put forward proposals for the 1995 elections. And on all the areas where I have put forward proposals, the Basic Law is silent. Since it is silent, the Governor of Hong Kong, and in due course this Legislative Council, is obliged to speak. It is not enough for anyone to say, “Go to the Basic Law and see what to do about the Election Committee.” Where, in the Basic Law, do I find what to do about the Election Committee, since Annex II makes it perfectly plain that the Election Committee for the first SAR legislature should be different from the one in 1999? Where in the Basic Law does it tell me what to do about the nine new functional constituencies? Let anybody show me where it says in the Basic Law. Where does it say in the Basic Law what I should do about the voting method?

語畢,肥彭將手中基本法往桌上一拍,攤開手掌放耳畔作聆聽狀,一眾議員啞口無言。

真係型到爆呀!

(Hong Kong Legislative Council – 24 October 1992)

P.S.
最後轉一轉氣氛,想 quote 剛離世的 MP Michael Meacher 對家人的一番話:

…people went into politics because they had principles and wanted to change things to make the world better, but that in order to get into power they would often compromise on their principles and that this could happen again and again until, if they eventually did get into power, they would have become so compromised that they would do nothing with it.
