Errr, no. In fact totally the opposite. It was to enable appeals to move forward and be determined in writing rather than personal appearance and as JW has indicated was only a temporary measure anyway. I really can't see why he got his knickers in a twist. With a unanimous vote by Legco, it was doomed to failure anyway. There has to be something else and this was just his way of throwing the toys out.
Perhaps as an IT solution was suggested and he was in charge of Gov's computing department he recognized that he was ultimate responsible for the failure. I was listening to the debate and couldn't believe why they were arguing for so long about a temporary planning measure. When John Moss said that CT had voted against the Government I assumed he's simply pressed the wrong button given that the subject matter was not really significant in the great scheme of things.
