                這是值得高興的日子,但不用太興奮。 它回來了(指香港回歸),至少是名義上回來了。 不過人家政治、司法、行政自成一套,本質上就是和當年的租界沒區別。 這不是貶低它,而是有話直說。 這種單方面的事實獨立,再結合我們處於弱勢的意識形態地位,最終只能導致一個結果,就是:它發展的好了,是它民主自由、法制健全,抗拒我們干涉的結果;它發展遇 到困難了,就是它自由受我們限制、法制被我們破壞、經濟被我們拖累的結果。 總之,無論回歸後,它是好是壞,都極有可能把我們當作對立面,進行導向型攻擊。 我本人,一點也不看好兩邊能互利互惠地作為一家人過日子。 ”

                      what a pity ! Almost want to share the video. Please correct the mistake. Hong Kong Island was ceded forever to UK, the extention of Kowloon and New Territories were for the 99 years lease.

                        Hong Kong is another successful story created for and by the British. Hopefully, in time, China will pay back the wonderful Brits for their gifts of colonization.

                                            China deserves to have hong kong back honestly. If the situation was reversed and china owned San Francisco in an imperialist military takeover we would feel quite different.

This is exactly why we have identity crisis.

                                                                                  Really people need to understand the transition of governments and not call a past government by the modern state that currently exists.
                                                                                  The country of the Qing is who the British took Hong Kong from, led by a Manchu minority who conquered the region 2 centuries before.
