.. we would like to give lgE the opportunity to spell out his vision of International, Livable City. No disruption please! This guy has no idea what to talk, there is nothing to be afraid of his view. It is the opportunity for us to poke fun of his vision after he finished his presentation. So don’t screw up the opportunity, behave yourself! We will have the opportunity after he finished his presentation. We should not let lgE find a lousy excuse not to attend the forum. We are all civilised and educated, so let behave like a gentleman.
