The thread title sounds like a Katie Melua song. :D

There are 9 million postal voters in Peterboro
and that's a fact
it's a thing you can't deny
they're the kind of stuff you buy

Nice to see the people rising up against the tyranny of the far right...

Eh, whats that?

I was at Uni in Jun 89.

After lustening to cinstant whinging about Nicuragua and El Salvador there was not fucking peep on Tianenmen square. Mainly as the lefties were doing shit subjects whos exams appeared to be 1 month before the hard subjects, so had fucked off early.

But in China their biggest toilet maker is called ‘Anals’. They must be experts.

Pretty much. When the Queen shits in a Chogie bog, I'm leaving the planet.

It is an interesting protest -- I'd imagine that most of the protestors would, directly as a result of the process, fall foul of the proposed law on extradition to mainland China.

Is that your choice?

I'd always assumed your mothership refused to beam you back up, or something.

Hmmm, a small offshore island protesting about authoritarian rule from a transnational superpower.

I trust the So-Called BBC will be fearmongering about HK 'crashing out' of China with a 'Hard Chexit' etc.

AFAIK the HK Chogies can rejoin the British Empire

We went to Taiwan Chinese Taipei to find out. 

Interesting point. What's the So-Called BBC official viewpoint on Taiwan? Founded by Chinese nationalists/militarists (bad) but who opposed the west and Christianity (good) but in turn oppressed by mainland China - run by communists (good) who oppress Muslims (bad).

It's a tricky one!

I think the HK Chinese would give their left nut for that to happen.

If the UK takes over HK, I'll be sure to stay away from dim sum for a couple of weeks.

Depends on how much Taiwan are paying them. If the So-Called BBC play their cards right, they can then get China to pay them double to reverse their position too.
