Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

thanks.  No, I haven't even been to HK.  I am studying Chinese though.

I've known about this for years, but this 10th anniversary b.s. about the Chinese in HK lacking democracy is turning my stomach.

Chris Patten was rewarded for his hatchet job in HK by being made EU commissioner.

What I would like to know is how sincere are the pro-democracy dissenters in HK?  Will they be rewarded when they leave as well?  Are they  naive?  Or do they really believe that the Chinese lack a will to fulfill their promises?

Even Patten said recently that the Chinese had been on their best behaviour in HK.
