The quality of some politicians

A couple of days ago, there was a heated exchange at a meeting of the Legislative Council sub-committee on Constitutional Affairs.  A man, Ma (馬恩國), speaking as a representative of the professionals, was revealed as a member of a pro-Communist party, and a member a political organization of a province on the mainland.  When a Legislative Councilor, Leung Kwok Hung criticized him for not declaring (hiding?) his political affiliation, he exploded.  He used foul language repeatedly.  He claimed to be a patriot of Australia, Hong Kong, and China (?).   He claimed that he was a lawyer and a university graduate while Leung was not, hence Leung did not have the right to criticize him, etc.

It was really ugly.  Shameless even.  Particularly for someone who claimed himself a university graduate, a lawyer, and a leader of a political party.  With leaders like Ma, perhaps some political parties really are not ready for democracy in Hong Kong.
