British switched tacti上海会所ng for the carrot more

 frequently than the stick. Though it used a lighter touch in administ

ration after World War II — and this approach had limits; see above — Britain never went so fa上海会所品茶微信

r as to risk its own position. Indeed, when push came to shove the cudgel was still happily relied upon; discontent in t

上海会所he 1950s and ’60s was smothered with a force today’s protesters couldn’t begin to imagine.

Police, after all, did nothing to stop the Legislative Council from being

ransacked and defaced with the colonial flag early last month — compare that treatment wi

th the hundreds killed in protests under British rule. What’s more, even limited improvements in governance w上海会所品茶微信

ere done cynically, as a means of pacifying a restive population. “Democratic” reforms were never se

riously pursued until negotiations began between Britain and China for the restoration of Chinese sovereignty. Su

rely we can put two and two together and see this as more than mere coincidence.上海会所

But for some, this strategy worked. With a few token concessions — none of which compare to the rights the po

pulation now enjoys — certain segments were won over to the idea of living as colonial subjects. Thi

s led to a sort of Stockholm Syndrome, where despite being occupiers the British were looked upon more fav上海会所品茶微信

orably as time passed. Sovereignty and self-determination were sacrificed at the altar of getti

ng ahead in a notoriously unequal system, where class divisions only grew more and more pronounced.上海会所

Long-standing inequalities with deep roots in the colonial period are now blamed by nostalgics on post-handover adm

inistration, and this misplaced blame is amplified by bad actors with an axe to grind. Thes上海会所品茶微信

e contradictions won’t be resolved so long as outside forces attempt to interfere, and th

ere certainly won’t be any progress if the city’s past is viewed through rose-colored glasses.

After a brief peaceful dem上海419ration, they left the

park to takee over Hennessy Road, a major thoroughfare in the heart of the shopping district in Causeway Bay, bloc

king traffic and disturbing tourists. In hit-and-run tactics, they also went to Wan Chai, taking similar actions.上海419品茶微信

Those protesters face the risk of arrest because they deviated from the planned rally’s location.

Under Hong Kong’s Public Order Ordinance, participating in an unlawful assembl

上海419y is punishable by five years’ imprisonment, and rioting carries a maximum penalty of 10 years.

Also on Sunday, demonstrators continued to occupy the Hong Kong International Airport arrivals hall for a third day.

In a separate development, the city’s major airline, Cathy Pacific, confirmed on Sat上海419品茶微信

urday that a Hong Kong pilot charged with rioting for taking part in a recent protest has been grounded.

上海419On Friday, the embattled airline received a warning from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the national aviat

ion regulator, over the possible safety risk the pilot posed and queries from passengers and the public.

The airline also confirmed that two of its employees had been dismissed for misconduct.上海419品茶微信

In Beijing, the Foreign Ministry urged the United Kingdom to stop interfering in China’s inte

rnal affairs and to refrain from making random, inflammatory accusations regarding Hong Kong.

上海419品茶微信The refutation came after the British Foreign Office said that new Foreign Secret

ary Dominic Raab spoke by telephone on Friday with Lam about the situation in Hong Kong.

“I’d like to point out that Hong Kong today is a special administrative

region of the People’s Republic of China. Long gone are the days when it was under B上海419品茶微信

ritish colonial rule,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Saturday.
