British Foreign Secretary is China's son-in-law but not so good in handling HK issue

Post by SitangCampus » Wed Jul 10, 2019 2:22 am

Hunter married a girl studying in the UK and became naturally a son-in-law of China, but his recent words on Hong Kong riots in storming legislature have caused a great stir in the home land of his mother-in-law, which will probably result from the recall of his darling back to China, so he is stupid enough. At the moment, he should put more efforts in defeating Boris Johnson to become the new Prime Minister of the cabinet and not get himself in the troubled water of Hong Kong. A Chinese mother-in-law is nothing to be laughed off, who will determine your happiness in future.

Thank you for the entertaining video, Sitang.

The Chinese spokesman seems to be a little out-of-date. Perhaps he needs some education ;) He says:

"The UK has no sovereignty, no jurisdiction and no right to supervise Hong Kong after the handover. There is no room for Britain to claim any so-called responsibility over Hong Kong whatsoever."

This is a very parochial view of Britain's duties in the world. They are not limited to Hong Kong. Since the end of British colonialism, when most colonies were little more than mini-dictatorships under a British governor, Britain has fastidiously maintained her responsibilities worldwide. Indeed, her new-found attachment to "democracy" is so strong that she now seeks to intervene in countries that were not even part of the British Empire.

Chinese wife? Or Japanese? Mr Hunter does not seem to be so sure...

But Mr C/Hunt has bigger problems to worry about than the nationality of his beloved partner.

Currently, as British Foreign Secretary (Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs), he has managed to engineer:
- spat with China over HK
- military incidents with Iran
- insults to Russia
- argument with USA
Not bad for a new Foreign Secretary.

Just a question, Sitang: does China have the power (or right) to recall Chinese nationals from other countries?

I am not a worker of Chinese Foreign Ministry, so I cannot give you the official reply. But in our history, whoever offends our country, how far away he may be, he must be brought to justice to carry his responsibility.

At the moment, Britain is advised to care for its own problem and if it has the ability to mind Hong Kong's affairs, why does it make so much trouble to exit European Union? Isn't it that it cares too much about its own advantages that may be taken by people from other European countries? A narrow-minded country should not speak too much or too loud, or it will make a dirty scene of itself only on the world stage. As you know, for the Belt and Road Initiative, Chinese government has paid a big sum to poor countries around the world. African students can get 200,000 yuan free scholarship to study in China, a sum that is higher than the annual income of a middle-class salary man in a medium city. Think about it.
