Would the inhabitants prefer the warm embrace of the International Brotherhood of Socialism or the Shameful History of British Imperialism?

Hmm, I see.

My wife’s in Shanghai for work this week and says it’s ace. Light years ahead of us in most ways and ‘the people’ seem madly happy. All splashing the cash and dancing in the daytime in the parks. Maybe they’ve got it going on up there...

I told her about the HK protests and she had no idea what I was on about. Great bunch of lads etc.

Things calm today. Maybe because of rain. Not going away though. Mood is very different from Occupy in 2014. This protest has much more support from average citizens, institutions and even big corporations. A million people on Sunday. Mental. The equivalent of 10 million taking to the streets in UK.

Edit: just read the China Daily piece - absolute f***ing lies Not surprising tbh but f*** me, that is shameless. About ten people turned out. And by the way, the petrol bomb attack on police referenced was triad related. They’ve already arrested someone.

It would seem they value the genealogy of their institutions.
