Put it that way Bluemonday you make a valid point. I agree that LegCo is passed its sell by date. But despite many people trying, no-one has yet come up with a better idea that does not create more problems that it is trying to solve.

So there we have it. Just 14 Votes and you win 50K a year. Marvellous. Democracy at its finest.
