Turns out James Tien's visit to Beijing, with it's typical quota of sycophants and whinging, didn't go so well, according to the SCMP:

Top Beijing officials have told the Liberal Party to forget about joining a governing coalition, because that would violate the principles of the Basic Law, party sources said.

The officials also apparently gave the party a slap on the wrist for its recent testy relationship with the chief executive, and called on the Liberals to be a "model for fostering harmony" and to get behind Donald Tsang Yam-kuen, the sources said.

Any one want to take bets?

Tsang forced the review of the GST to force Henry Tang from ever trying to challenge him in the run for chief executive. James Tien was forced to go to China nad get a dressing down to avoid ever challening Tsang in the run for chief executive. Anson Chan got a phone call or two from Beijing to avoid ever challening Tsang in the run for Chief executive.
