Default Hong Kong protesters choke airport again as Chinese forces mass at border

Quote:
Hong Kong -- Protesters clogged the departure area at Hong Kong's reopened airport Tuesday, a day after they forced one of the world's busiest transport hubs to shut down entirely amid their calls for an independent inquiry into alleged police abuse. More than 100 flights were cancelled as thousands of protesters occupied the airport's main terminal for the fifth consecutive day.

The naïveté was almost touching. Hong Kong was the most successful colony in the world, with a popular governor — but still to London, a colony. China was the UK's main focus, Hong Kong was getting in the way of the Chinese market.

It won't be long before China takes control of Hong Kong. Both the UK and Hong Kong regret the day that England ceded governorship of that small colony.
