Re: Hong Kong

Sadly Hong Kong has never been a Democracy, certainly not under English rule, they did get a bit more under the PRC, but not a lot.

Democracy ?

Maybe the US have already played their first card.

It said on the news this morning that China already has a few thousand troop based in HK. Seems to me that HK made a political blunder & are now stuck in the Chinese grove.
IMO there's plenty of governments who would/could have reacted far more harsher toward the protesters, that would've happened once they broke into the parliament itself.
Different ball game if Chinese troops do actually go onto the streets.

I don't see what the UK can do or say that would have any meaningful results.

Re: Hong Kong

Bad China

I dont see the big deal with PRC troops, it is part of their country, we had loads out there in our time as overlords, in fact we have troops all around the globe today. 80 countries plus as it happens, we had more than a few in Ireland.

Nevertheless such protests did not occur under British rule and Hongkongers were largely free to live, work and trade unhampered.
