    Could the Hong kong govement be having cold feet and is Bill Ernest trying to call there bluff. Will be interesting to see what happens next as Disney is going on record as saying they have confidence in the long term potential of HKDL and are willing to take on more.

    I had heard before that the HK Govt is unwilling to let WDC increase its shareholding in HKDL in order to protect its interests... well, since HK govt cannot invest due to legco's probable obstruction, let's see how this develops.

    I guess it will depend on how much faith the Govement has in this theme park venture. But I do feel it should be Disney spending the cash on any future development anyway.
