    In UK's case there's actually a level of, if not legal then political and moral responsibility towards the people of Hong Kong and their civil rights. In theory.

    Hong Kong people are now being stripped of their "political rights" simply for opposing the Chinese Communist Party's unwarranted meddling in Hong Kong's internal affairs?

    Surely the issue wouldn't even arise if China was governed as a representative republic with suitably devolved regional powers and rights (to protect regional languages for instance).
    UK already pretend the Anglo-Sino Joint Declaration is not exists

    Refer to the banned book Animal Farm for some ideas on the variety of subject-ship available.

    Hong Kong's civil liberties are an existential threat to the established, and to some, very lucrative CCP dictatorship and the very public play on "the rule of law" and stooges like "Rimsky" and his legal legions are just one facet of the Party's action plan. Embrace, extend and extinguish.

    Get your copies of Asterix while they're still available in this last somewhat free corner of Cantonia. And if you ever see a solitary abandoned sandal somewhere, spare a thought for Edward and his cohorts.

    the Hong Kong version would read:

    All book sellers are equal, some are more equal than others, but others disappear to be imprisoned
