RADIO reports on Baroness Dunn's resignation was given an extra dimension when BBC World Service called veteran legislator Elsie Tu (above) for comment. A smooth BBC hack asked if Lydia's defection could be the first of a flood of Hong Kong politicos heading for Britain.


Feisty Elsie put him firmly in his place. 'I don't think Britain has much to offer Hong Kongers in terms of weather or opportunities,' she snapped. So there you have it, the PLA may have big guns and nasty tanks, but at least here you are guaranteed a proper summer and none of those endless, icy winters.
