China 'stamps its feet' at US Senate resolution on Hong Kong
In a rather petulant (again, nothing new there, then ...) riposte to a US Senate resolution calling for democratic reform in the Special Administrative Region, China has criticised the "groundless censure from the US" and said that the US move "hurts the feelings of the Chinese people". If these remarks were not so ridiculous, and potentially serious, they would be quite funny. It's just another signal to the rebels on that offshore 'province', Taiwan, that the One Country-Two Systems formula agreed for Hong Kong and occasionally mooted as a possibility for the 'Republic of China' (Ooh, slap my wrists!) to become re-united with the People's Republic of China is not likely to grow in popularity in the RoC.
