For example USA it’s tweedle Dee and tweedle dum party policy differences, UK Tories v New Labour no difference, even old Oireland not a cigarette paper between policies of 2 parties who have run the state almost since its formation

So whilst the Chinese system is one party the differences in local regions can oft amount to as much choice as in the West

What’s your take Chasey?
Your right, some regions are only slightly corrupt where as others are totally corrupt


Sorry what choice are you referring to? the people do not have a vote in china for or against the CCP?

The "people" can elect the NCP which is a largely symbolic gesture with no real impact on the CCP

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

So they come over here, steal our jobs, put a huge burden on our public services, dilute our culture, overwhelm our housing stock, but hang on, they may vote Tory so welcome onboard.

Just a thought, given the reasoning behind this, maybe consideration should be given to those in the US currently having their "traditional freedoms of the press, of speech and of protest, among others." taken away.

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

If we can welcome people from Hong Kong because they are being oppressed how about the other people who are similarly oppressed who are trying to gain access from other parts of the world?

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

Hong Kong was a UK territory until we signed it over 1n 1997, that is the essential difference.

China may laugh and carry on but they will still feel the discomfort of being a world pariah.
I for one am looking very hard at anything I buy online or instore now and am avoiding Chinese goods as far as possible.
Same here but recently ordered 4 items from AliExpress in china as they are the only places to order from that will deliver the items to Turkey even though I will have to pay a import tax.

As already said, it was a British territory BUT we also gave them special passports which allow 6 months long visits to UK.
The new passports would allow up to 12 months giving the right to work and /or study, which would them clear the way for them to apply to stay permanently and become full British citizens.
We did the same thing when Idi Amin threw the Ugandan Asians out of Uganda, and they have all assimilated into UK life very well because they wanted to be successful.
