Comrade Crunch: If the British administration treated HK 'like garbage', why did so many refugees from China come here in the heyday of colonial rule? If that were true, how did we build a world class city when most of China resembled North Korea? Why do we have rule of law, etc? We Hong Kongers have an identity built on civic, historical, cultural and political values, not some vulgar racist ethnic identity. We are better than that.
If UK was treating Hong Kong folks like garbage, UK gov. wouldn't put 7.6million on the study of Hong Kong each year after WW2*note that you can have a house with 10 thousand back in the days, 7.6 million=760 houses, even more than a city
Well, according to Sino-British Joint Declaration, CPC cannot interrupt Hong Kong's internal business, as they did... We are just voting for our next path
It's funny how ignorant people like you are. What you are talking about is ethnicity. We don't look "chinese", we look "asian". There's a difference. Learn it you fool. Also, there are plenty of HK people of western racial backgrounds, there are Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, other Asians, southeast Asians who are all HK people. Claiming that they are Chinese is just blasphemous and utterly ridiculous.
Hong Kong people don't **** in the streets like their mainland counterparts.
Hong Kong people have allot of savings, amazing transportation, government is cash rich and extremely low unemployment. Pretty good government and a nice place to live. Not sure what all these people are talking about. HK is a great place to live! We are all very lucky to be here.
Under UK I think it would be much worse. UK don't even like their government and Europe with high unemployment hate theirs.
question is : would China let us ?
I would love to have the British come back.. I do not want vote for anything, and would like to have the British government appoint a governor for HK again, appoint all the high ranking officials and Legco, and they can all do whatever they wants for the good of the people without all these idiots like Long Hair questioning everything they do...
I am HongKonger, not Chinese!
