Exactly – let them get on  with cleaning up the collusion related mess and filthy air and policies left by Bow Tie, and pursue Misconduct in Public Office charges against him and his basementgate subordinate.

Give Leung a chance to prove himself

Leung Chun-ying has assumed office as chief executive in a stormy political climate.

He has faced questions over his integrity, but I think the requests of some critics have been unreasonable.

He should be allowed to make a fresh start.

Hong Kong now needs a leader of talent and vigour. In the past seven years, we had a chief executive who felt he had done his duty. But it is easy to pinpoint the inadequacies and maladministration of the government.

We need a leader to clean up the mess left by the administration of Donald Tsang Yam-kuen. The new government team must fight the uphill battle of narrowing the gap between rich and poor. It must also deal with social mobility, demographic issues, and education and housing problems.

We must give it a chance to show it can overcome the obstacles it faces.

We have enough time to make Hong Kong an ideal place to live and bring up a family. We need a leader who can put us back on track and build up a harmonious society.

Politicians make mistakes. Take former US president Bill Clinton for example. He may have had integrity problems, but I am sure readers would agree that he did a lot for his country.

C. Y. Leung and his team of ministers will be closely watched, so there is no question of them evading scrutiny.

Lo Wai-kong, Yau Ma Tei
