This article is currently the most-read in the People’s Daily, China’s influential and high circulation newspaper. It’s a good read. Check it out!

via How long can HK keep on squandering? – People’s Daily Online.

I have sympathy for both sides. Many in the UK, for example, will worry about the Hong Kong Chinese. The Hong Kong Chinese are a tough group of people, used to looking after themselves. If they do not think they have a good deal as part of China, they will join their relatives in Vancouver or other Chinese communities overseas. Personally, I think that the People’s Daily presents a balanced viewpoint – namely, that the Hong Kong people are now hurting themselves by their actions.

Thoughts?

One response

  1. I tend to agree with Dr Alf. The people of Hong Kong have never had it so good and the protests about the Chinese Government drawing up shortlists of candidates for the post of Hong Kong Chief Executive are manifest nonsense.

    When Americans vote for President, do they really imagine that they are choosing the candidates?
    The reality is that those persons who are to become candidates are pre-selected by the Bilderberg Group and then the American electorate chooses from that group of selected candidates.

    Out of forty-four American Presidents, thirty-four of them are related to just two people, namely Alfred the Great and Chalemagne!

    The same happens in the UK and in all Western European countries, so we have David Cameron, Miliband and Clegg plus Simon Hughes, Ed Balls and George Osborne, as Bilderbergers, and from those three, candidates will be put forward.

    Bilderbergers meet in secret once a year, this year it was in Copenhagen;last year, it was at the Grove Hotel, Watford, UK.

    Normally, there are under 150 attendees, and the proceedings are held in conditions of absolute secrecy, with the entire cost being picked up by taxpayers, who have no say in which people are selected as candidates nor in any decisions which are made about peace, war, the economy, financial markets or environmental matters.

    The students in Hong Kong and those winding them up into a frenzy of righteous indignation need to understand that their right to choose is no more and no less the same as ours.

    They have had their fun but now the tradespeople and small businesses they have disrupted need to get back to work and the grandstanding and disruption of that great city needs to stop.
