Three lawmakers ejected from legislature
(10-15 12:43)

Three lawmakers were kicked out of the city's legislature, as they confronted Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-Kuen during his annual policy address.

The three members of the League of Social Democrats were removed by security guards after they shouted abuse at Tsang during his annual policy address.

First to go was well-known activist "Long Hair'' Leung Kwok-hung who accused Tsang of letting down the poorest members of society.

Later, the two other members of the party in the legislature -- "Mad Dog'' Raymond Wong Yuk-man and Albert Chan Wai-yip -- were also removed by guards after questioning Tsang's commitment to the poor.
