The younger ones who are doing the protesting will not be eligible according to Boris/Dom's plan. They were the ones originally protesting about the Chinese government's plan to have an extradition treaty with the mainland. Hong Kong has extradition treaties with the UK and USA but not with it's mother land!! China gave way on that, so the protestors decided to demand full "democracy", - ironic, since they'd never had it as a British colony and had never protested about it's absence!!
What is rarely mentioned by our totally unbiased media is how distant Hong Kong became a British colony in the first place. It was taken by military conquest through superior technology after the defeat of China in the fist Opium War. This came about after China tried to confiscate a cargo of this powerful addictive drug which the Empire was going to make a killing selling to the Chinese people. It's a bit like the Colombian's using hypersonic missiles to win a war against the UK because we tried to stop them making a killing selling cocaine on English streets, and taking the Isle of Wight as a prize for their noble efforts.

come on now FB   your letting the side down a bit here according the people of hong kong  china is no more hong kongs mother land than the people of republic of  Ireland  see England as Irelands mother land
 
Your a man who believes in freedom of choice and freedom of governance for native peoples of the world and the people of hong kong do not want to be governed by china
 
You cannot support the people of  Catalonia ,Scotland  etc  wanted their own freedom  but not the people of Hong Kong
 
So they should be granted independence  and we and the rest of the world should support their choice
 
On a side note for a nation of such a large population china has a  pretty rubbish military record , the Mongols over ran them, we hammered them and the Japanese walked all over them

What side is that RR1972? Are you now campaigning for the long over-due re-unification of Ireland, made a nightmare by "Perfidious Albion's" policy of divide and conquer (by plantation of immigrants, or/and promoting a class of people, then given favoured status, so that they then fight desperately to keep).

Me? Im all for a united ireland doesn’t seem much appetite down south for it these days. What they going to do with the loyalists. Not a problem they want or need tbh
 
For the record I was a professional soldier who signed up to get paid and see the world not because I am a staunch advocate of empire or to extend Britain's imperial power Wink
 
 
BTW I'm fully aware of the history of Ireland from the ulster plantation , to the statutes of Kilkenny  to the siege of Drogheda to the anglo irish war and  upto the current "troubles" very interesting if bloody topic

RR1972, I'm glad that you can see that the "troubles" in Ireland and many other parts of the world have arisen as a result of imperialist, expansion, plunder and exploitation. Did you realise this before you became a hired gun for the English empire or did that experience gradually enlighten you?

Tell you what, Theresa May's deal may be looking a lot more attractive to many right now.
