  • Gogo, in my experience, success in these cases depends largely on the attitude you have when dealing with them. If you want to frame it as a "battle" you will ultimately lose.

    If however, you approach it as a cooperative gesture, helping them to provide better services to the public, you may find them on your side, and have trail after trail opened like we are getting over here.

    You can't go in with insults and expect them to try to please you. It just doesn't work - and we've learned that the hard way.

    Try approaching them differently and you might get a different outcome. Again, it would be great to meet up in person and discuss strategy on this. Virtual activism hasn't worked well for us in the past ... let's try something new!

    Cheers,

    Brandon

  • Gogo,

    Residing part time in Tung Chung, I feel your pain and understand the frustration!! Makes you want to do a critical mass ride down Lo Fu Tau :evil: Good attempt though!

    Dealing with Big Brother has to be slowly slowly and, unfortunately, a bit touchy feely - Brandon has the right idea, and that method has seen the best success [thanks Guys]. There HAS been progress but it ain't all flowing single track! B)
