Quote of the Day: Regina Ip

Pro-Beijing lawmaker Regina Ip fights back tears on Commercial Radio
It's been a bad 24 hours for Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee.

This morning she appeared on Commercial Radio and became emotional talking about the pro-Beijing establishment bungling their vote for the political reform package by walking out of the Legislative Council chamber minutes before the vote was taken.

Twenty eight voted against the package, versus 8 for it. While 31 pro-Beijing walked out of the chamber, they still wouldn't have had the two-thirds majority to pass it anyway.

But these lawmakers looked silly and are paying for it now.

Ip explained that she didn't sleep well the night before and began to crack up and cry on the radio; someone handed her a tissue.

"I feel very sad and very sorry that we've failed many people's expectations. I saw many of our supporters were scolding us online," she said. "The error this time is very regrettable."

Perhaps she is also crying because she totally blew her chances of ever becoming chief executive of Hong Kong...
