Patrickov wrote:Besides it is simply wrong to go to other places and harass people living there for generations in the first place. If Israel is wrong to do it to Palestinians, and Chinese are wrong to do that to Hongkongers, why are Hongkongers allowed to pester the good folks living in Britain?
skinster wrote:The U.K. government offered HK people citizenship. It has offered people in areas it's colonized citizenship before and I guess it's doing more of that. But it's all very silly really, since in this case it's being done as an attack on the Chinese government. The British government doesn't actually care about the people of Hong Kong, and we know that because we know how it treated the people of Hong Kong when it was occupying HK.
And it's silly to compare the situation of Palestinians with those in Hong Kong, since the former are occupied and blockaded and the latter are not (anymore).
Patrickov wrote:It is indeed very stupid to assume we actually "believe" whoever offering help.
The case is simply that, China is much, much worse, because they cannot even take care of their own ass.
And China very much wants to blockade us to death...
skinster wrote:Well that's good, considering what the Brits did to the people they occupied in HK.

Patrickov wrote:I was born more than a decade before handover. The British treated us quite fairly.
And considering such false accusation is from someone who himself resides in Great Britain.
If he dislikes UK so much why doesn't he move back to Pakistan, which, AFAIK, are best friends of China and must be prospering?
I really cannot find anyone more hypocritical.
The National Security Law says it all. They value their fucking asses' "security" over anything.

The first matter for my care was to see my rifle was in order and to make sure plenty of ammunition was still left. I had to prepare for action for the night. Each time it was like this, year after year. I compared Heungshan with Hong Kong and, although they are only 50 miles apart, the difference of the Governments impressed me very much. Afterwards, I saw the outside world and I began to wonder how, it was that foreigners, that Englishmen could do such things as they had done, for example, with the barren rock of Hong Kong, within 70 or 80 years, while China, in 4,000 years, had no places like Hong Kong."
Patrickov wrote:The consensus among Hongkongers are that the 1967 riot was an illegal and violent attempt of the Communists to usurp power.
This is why I regard the accusation against the British false. And besides the British behave much fucking more reasonable otherwise.
About the blockade: It had happen before historically -- even from the narrative of the current government.
What I said is that China has all the condition and intention to do so. If Hong Kong chooses to move away (which, although I am not very in, can't deny that many if not most do think so) it will happen again.
skinster wrote:In my last post I showed you how the British occupation dealt with protesters (by killing them) which is not "more reasonable" than how China responded to HK protesters over the last year. You should look into how the British dealt with your parents, grandparents and great grandparents' generation, where there was no equality and few rights.
skinster wrote:So there's no blockade in Hong Kong by China as you absurdly, originally claimed. Thanks for clearing that up.
Another reminder that making stuff up isn't a good look.

I was very consistent that it's my predictions. Putting words in my mouth is not a good idea.
