    Will be painful, given how many blisters they get from clapping!

    Surely this is just a reaction to the changes in China. 8 years ago they were not locking millions away sinking ships, saying a war would be good etc. China has changed and the world is reacting.

    LegCo was nobbled last year. The members representing the majority have no tools in their toolbox to stop bad laws.

    The Pan Dems did propose changes to the 2003 attempt but these were ignored.

    We no longer have a separation of powers in HK.

    I guess that's what saber rattling means... Any stores selling metal army helmets Will we ever see PLA troops on the streets of HK? Last year I thought not likely...now? Who knows?

    This was a message to the US government and their gang. Don't overestimate the protesters.

    Sounds more like the borg. HK people, resistance is futile, you will be assimilated. Do like Tibet and Xinjiang and repopulate HK with well behaved sheep and try to indoctrinate what's left.
