Talk about Hong Kong has gone very quiet.
Everyone seems distracted.

We do need to stand up to China however we also should not mislead the citizens of Hong Kong. We could not possibly accept 300,000 refugees all at once so we need to make it clear that if it comes to that there will have to be some sort of restrictions or a phased timetable.

 


One more point

I don't think you'd end up with many refuges. What you would get is some protection from unfair treatment from the British Consulate which would make things more difficult for China.

Was more pointing out about the wild ideas that were floating around some months ago about bio weapons and Chinese interference with social media.

There are far more than 300,000 illegal immigrants in the UK. Chuck them out and then bring in some legal ones that actually respect our way of life.

More trouble with China.

India is possibly the only nation with the manpower to compete with China.

I wonder if a devisive viral video will circulate today?

This is not a factor for Hong Kong

Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

i was listening to a radio discussion yesterday, which raised a couple of points.
Why can't the UK renew the lease on HK to try and reinstate its previous incarnation ?
This was countered by the fact China will not seek to reduce its land mass. Look at the island-grabbing around the Pacific and areas like Taiwan and Kashmir. China is seeking to expand.

And Asian culture, and specifically China, can be considered quite brutal, compared to western attitudes. If China wants something, then it's pointless negotiating.
Unless you are willing to use military-style force to resist, then quite frankly the outcome is inevitable.

Taiwan is not a land grab for China, it's a reunification with a secessionist province.

The land mass of Hong Kong is irrelevant to China, the recovery was a matter of national prestige and gives the huge amount of illegal wealth in China to be laundered in the neighbourhood. In 1997 at the time of the handover Hong Kong represented 16% of China's GDP, now just 3%.

People have to accept China is biggest kid on the block with the biggest stick.

Your stuff in bold is the prevalent position. China's leadership and their "don't give a fook" mentality.
I wonder how badly hit tourism is in HK and the impact on local industries and businesses.?
China's growing economy on the mainland must benefit hugely from their lack of workers rights.

The inevitable conclusion is one of assimilation and compliance to the new regime.

Tourism in Hong Kong is overwhelmingly from China.

From when the protests started last year combined with a very prevalent anti Mainland Chinese sentiment from people who describe them selves as Hong Kongers tourism is pretty much screwed. The home grown Ocean Park theme park has run out of money and Hong Kong Disney only getting Chinese visitors from Southern China after Shanghai Disney opened.

The convention and exhibition business was decimated by the riots quickly followed by Covid.

All in all, hospitality business in a terrible place.

I suddenly remembered Hong Kong Fuey - I hope he's okay. He's probably being re-educated. Or his filing cabinet had a little accident.

He's almost certainly considered racist now, isn't he?
