    Just my opinion, of course, but...having recently returned from China after living there for 11 years, teaching oral English (I'm hoping to return in August) I find it bewildering the amount of critisim that China is receiving for reclaiming it's own territory ? Xiānggǎng or 香港 is a part of China, NOT Britain.

    "Great Britain", "United Kingdom"....seriously ?.
    One of my former (Chinese) students remarked "United Kingdom ? I thought that "united"" meant "together" but you are 4 countries who are not together. you told me about the British Empire and you used the past tense".

    I think / know that is the truth !

    Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, the Commonwealth etc. the list is endless map. It's the legacy of the British Empire, which a lot of eejits think we still hold.

    Not good publicity for China on the news Map.

    Any thoughts on the apparent ethnic cleansing of Muslims in large parts of the country?

    I never witnessed any "ethnic cleansing", in fact whilst in China I worked with other teachers of various faiths and nationalities.
