Good guys win

Hong Kong – for once the good guys have won. The Chinese have been trying to bring in controversial new legislation to limit personal freedoms and help curtail those pesky people who insist on their right to protest. As we all know the normal Chinese method of dealing with protestors is ro run a tank over them. However the former British colony brings in so much investment to Red China they have to tread carefully, besides being treaty obligated to respect certain rights when they took Hong Kong back from Britain. Unfortunately for them, whatever the ills of Britisj imperial rule, it did leave the former colony with a sense of civil liberties, due process and personal freedoms under law. Now that’a a nicer legacy to leave than some of the imperial past – witness the HK legislators having to back down to the protestors. Go the good guys for once.
