口是心非

中環皇后碼頭應否拆卸的問題終於有定案,立法會工務小組委員會前天以 10 票對 7 票通過撥款給政府施工。馬沙百分百支持拆卸皇后碼頭,加速該區發展。皇后碼頭除了那個刻有「皇后碼頭」四個大字的牌匾,根本就沒有保留價值,乾脆將牌匾送進博物館就是。

香港人真的越來越喜愛群起盲目支持一些自己從未看清楚、想清楚的事,天星碼頭事件如是,中大學生報事件如是。馬沙敢講,除因路經皇后碼頭外,試問有多少市民曾經專訪皇后碼頭?

如今碼頭行將拆卸,有三幾個團體及政棍出來高呼保護文物,一眾市民就跟住反對。其實有幾多市民心底裡真的認為皇后碼頭是文物,大概又是那份「最心痛是,愛得太遲」的情懐作祟吧了。

說回投票結果,市民又一次可認清誰是口是心非的政棍。三票之差由誰人造成呢?

原來就是因為 4 個在保護皇后碼頭上立場堅決的議員,在投票這重要時刻分別缺席投票及投棄權票。他們分別是陳婉嫻、蔡素玉、劉秀成及陳偉業。

他們事後的解釋,馬沙覺得幾好笑。

陳婉嫻缺席原因是為免自己發怒。

蔡素玉就賴民建聯不准她投反對票。

劉秀成聲稱因未有業界共識,唯有一走了之。

陳偉業則唔遲唔早,投票時間臨時入院檢查,還說若出席一定投反對票。

支持保護碼頭的市民都可謂死而無怨,要怪就只怪信錯上述四名口是心非的無間道。

Hi, I've been a daily reader of your blog and a support to most of your views.

However I simply could NOT agree to your views regarding Queen's Pier.

Yes, personally I truly respect your personal view about the views on the Pier. However that doesn't mean other people are seeing it in the same way. If people does NOT treasure the Star Ferry Pier, absolutely NO ONE would even spent any time doing crazy protests against our government. My point is, something you don't treasure doesn't mean other don't either. You cannot jump straight to a conclusion that this is people's "one-time emotions" and we should simply trash that plate into a museum!

Quite frankly, we have already lost a lot of historical treasures in the expense of earning cash from selling land.

Seems like some people including yourself prefers cash over other things, but don't simply 'crown' your personal values on mine.


Sincerely,
Tom, your blog reader.

馬沙兄,
我同意你說法.這幾年我去中環大會堂觀禮無數次,偏偏就未去過皇后碼頭.

馬沙:
算把啦,香港人大部份由填鴨班填出來,強項就係唔用腦,政棍講乜就信乜.

Tim 仔 說...

支持與否唔係問題,最重要係好多人真係人云亦云,自己都唔知自己想點......

匿名 說...

我都係咁話,市民經常被政客老點先係大問題。

支持保護文物者 說...

的而且確,每個人都有權支持或反對.

但正如馬沙兄所言,我們一班支持保護文物者如何努力又怎樣?

到頭來皇后碼頭還不是死在陳婉嫻、蔡素玉、劉秀成及陳偉業這四個平日口說支持保護文物的政棍手上.又怪得誰呢?

匿名 說...

I agree with you totally that Queen's Pier is not worth preserving. As far as I am concern it is a simple, unattractive, boring, and cheap structure. The democrats are simply sitting on the fence to vote against the relocation. What did they do before all these sudden conservationists came out and protested against demolition of the unworthy Star Ferry Pier?

Tim 說...

皇后碼頭我就無乜回憶,但他日拆中環街市就一定要反對到抵,事關唔知有幾多次人有三急,就係靠呢個經常地下濕立立之公廁解決,絕對係大眾市民最多集體回憶地方。
至於o個班政客,自從程x南事件之後,我對佢地真係丁點幻想都沒有咯。

Sir I respect your view on the pier but it just seems highly prejudicial to me...

It is a highly debatable issue whether the pier has enough value to justify taxpayers to spend millions to preserve it, but your entry seems to be suggesting that all opposition are simply naive, influenced by just a few politicians and everyone went crazy etc.

You youself may not really treasure the Pier, that's totally fine, but when people who do have memories in that place shout out their opposition to the demolition, they're just "盲目支持一些自己從未看清楚、想清楚的事"??? or some stupid "情懐作祟吧了"???

路人C 說...

點解咁多人會覺得係D政客老點先有人支持保留皇后碼頭?有跟呢單野既都知道,一路都係班友先知先覺,仲進取過班議員喎。

馬沙呢篇野實在都好冇說服力下。例如佢只係假設示威班友盲目,又唔解釋點解覺得佢地盲目(只係反問有幾多人去過皇后碼頭,但係人地個 point 從來都唔係有幾多人去過,而係歷代港督都響果度上岸。)

又例如佢話要加速該區發展,完全冇提到專業團體的保留建議,所需工程時間同政府建議一樣,政府要起既路同水渠,全部都一樣可以準時完工。

上面兩點,睇下報紙都知。馬沙呢篇野,衰D講句,只係晒緊自己有幾無知囉。

朋友,我都係寫報紙的。做大眾傳媒的一大責任,係唔識就唔好亂咁講。你呢篇野,同話中海油係賣魚肝油冇乜分別。

匿名 說...

D政客came out to support the preservation of Queen's Pier because they have discovered a perfect opportunity to gain political mileage. Has anyone seen or heard any of the major political parties making public proclamation regarding conservation policy before the Star Ferry Pier incident?

Re the comments "專業團體的保留建議,所需工程時間同政府建議一樣,政府要起既路同水渠,全部都一樣可以準時完工。" . The current disputes may have already disrupted the contractor's planned programme for the demolition and subsequent work. Any contractor worth his salt would thank the politicians for providing them the golden opportunity to claim for another large sum of money, in addition to the handsome gain they have made due to the delay to the start of the reclamation project. I wonder why the "professional bodies" didn't care to also mention this point in their advice to the public? Perhaps the politicians should ask this question in LegCo.

都係寫報紙的路人C,

看來你的理解能力疲低!

「例如佢只係假設示威班友盲目,又唔解釋點解覺得佢地盲目」:

人地咪話「冇幾多市民曾經專訪皇后碼頭及心底裡真的認為皇后碼頭是文物」,所以班友仲支持咪叫盲目囉。


「個 point 從來都唔係有幾多人去過,而係歷代港督都響果度上岸」:

香港回歸快十年,唔好成日崇洋做洋奴吧!


「完全冇提到專業團體的保留建議,所需工程時間同政府建議一樣,政府要起既路同水渠,全部都一樣可以準時完工。」:

你都係講可以準時完工,完全冇提到專業團體的保留建議,政府要白花多少金錢。


「上面兩點,睇下報紙都知。馬沙呢篇野,衰D講句,只係晒緊自己有幾無知囉。」:

人地唔寫,唔一定代表唔知!可以係認為冇必要或冇意義。

如人地要將所有報紙寫過的都提出來,才証明人地唔係無知,嗰份應該叫報告書而係幾百字的專欄!


路人C,你都係寫報紙的嗎?

可否話俾老衲知在那份報紙及那個專欄能見到老兄鴻文呢? 

老衲好想知道一個走去行家留言版話人地無知的報紙佬自己篇文有幾好!

老衲相信此留言版讀者都好想知。大家想看嗎?

moneycafe 說...

我們的集體回憶是什麼?

跟父母到天星碼頭坐一程溫馨小輪、渴望過海到麥當奴....
到皇后碼頭,食一杯cheapcheap軟雪榚....
聖誕在海濱長廊大批同學仔去哇哇大叫....
或是五支旗桿等自已第一次....

那是全部是最廉價的石屎水泥,不過滿載了我三十多年來的回憶....

"香港回歸快十年,唔好成日崇洋做洋奴吧!"

really depressing to see this kind of view again...

hk happened to be ruled by the UK for hundreds of years before 1997, so preserving landmarks with historical values/significants=崇洋的洋奴?????

Sir Donold Tsang is now living in the ex-港督府; lawmakers are having their meeting everyday in the Legco (oh but we will soon have a new government office and legco building at the Tamar site, so please also tear down the old legco building as soon as possible in order to “加速該區發展”). We still have road names like “Queen’s Road”…we gotta change that too…City Hall, Peninsular Hotel…all these must go if one day they hinder our "development”, otherwise we’re just 崇洋的洋奴.

胡應湘 說...

皇后碼頭的去留,近期惹起很大爭議,一些市民對皇后有無限依戀,不過,喜歡搞工程、很想在灣仔興建Mega Tower的合和主席胡應湘昨日就有意見,他在一個財經論壇中,將皇后碼頭比作垃圾,說留下皇后碼頭浪費金錢,而且無謂。
平衡發展和保育從來不易。胡應湘昨日一提到皇后便有氣,指這是少數人想保留,相信大部分人都不是這樣想,他更說﹕「政府好有錢咩?留低個碼頭根本就浪費納稅人金錢,納稅人的錢很辛苦賺回來的。」

他又說,不能每樣東西都說有集體回憶便留下,「舊車都可以好有感情,是否所有舊車都(保)留呢?垃圾都保留,香港哪裏裝得晒?」胡認為打官司保留皇后碼頭完全浪費時間和金錢,「那些律師費根本就不需要」。

香港如今似文革?

胡應湘又指原址保留的建議不倫不類﹕「有什麼理由在路中間有個碼頭?整出來都唔靚啦!」他又把現在的香港比喻為文革時的中國﹕「當年文革只是顧住鬧交,反而香港實幹,所以經濟發展好快。今日反而香港大家顧住鬧交,對經濟其實一點幫助都無。這樣下去,香港只會錯失機會!」

匿名 說...

我個人就應同胡應湘今次的講話。

TAI 說...

我支持保留天星皇后, 要發展還有其他方向, 但工程已經展開, 一切已成定局, 事到如今, 我都認同原址保留是不倫不類, 要爭取不如檢討因何當日會有如此決定, 是有人不稱職還是有人不理民意, 應該有所交代
