I’m still backing the locals to get most of what they want. They’re winning at the moment continuing to enjoy widespread support and lam not having a clue. China’s never going to go in, if it is to stop it will be by government backdown.

Yeah time to cave politburo, it’s over. The idea you can impose tyranny on a democratic state is so 1950s.

So they do have a right to vote for a party independent of Beijing std?

I'm going to a lunch at PCEC on 4 December hosted by the Chinese Dept of Foreign Affairs. Whilst it's mainly an information session on PRC's Belt and Road Initiative they're also covering off on foreign policy so I'll let you know what comes out of it.

I hope that lunch is here in Perth BC or we may never see you again mate. I mean just look at what happened to a Chinese national who was a whistle blower for ASIO and later found dead in his hotel room. Hope they don’t find out you are the whistle blower for Ozfooty BC. :woohoo:

Yes mate...Perth Convention and Entertainment Centre...so all good. It should be an interesting session as there's some pretty heavy hitters presenting including His Excellency the Ambassador. It remains to be seen if they'll mention the HK situation.

Don’t think so, not really but one day they will. If I have interpreted your question correctly.

Hopefully China comes to its senses and sees Hong Kong as the Democratic and economic powerhouse and tourist meca it has been over the past 50 years and just be grateful it is part of China and a cash machine for China. But the way it is going they are destroying what has made Hong Kong what is, or was.

A good article here on the shape of the world and how the US is responsible for a fair bit of the unrest.
