Interesting contrast in views on Britain

As the Scots, Northern Irish and some Londoners contemplate the possibility of leaving Great Britain, some Hong Kong Chinese want back in.

Now it's clearly never going to happen as mainland China always regarded the loss of Hong Kong as a great loss of face and aren't going to allow it again, just interesting that some people having tried one of the alternatives don't see Westminster rule as a monstrous abomination.

I worked a great deal in Hong Kong over many years. I've stopped now because I had seen more than enough of the inside of a 747, but I am familiar with the feeling that so many HK citizens have about the old days, when Britain ran the colony.

I still go there occasionally, and I know for a fact that large numbers of HK citizens would have us back in a heartbeat, were such a thing possible. It isn't going to happen, though.
