A reminder to the British Government: Hong Kong Chinese have died for you

Remember the issue I had last year with getting a new Permanent Identity Card for Hong Kong and finding that the British Government—which I have accused of apartheid over the situation surrounding British Overseas Nationals—would not do its job via the Foreign & Commonwealth Office?
   No, it hasn’t been solved, but I thought it might be rather nice to remind the FCO that, whenever Britain needed help, we Hong Kong Chinese were there. And we were prepared to die in the name of HM the Queen:

Falkland Islands roll of honour

   Most Britons I have spoken to agree: a British subject is a British subject is a British subject.
   If only we had a celebrity like Joanna Lumley, who campaigned on behalf of those brave and loyal Gurkhas.
   Never had this problem when John Major’s Tories were in power.

    Sadly our government is morally bankrupt, ethically flawed and, as if that weren’t enough, entirely incompetent.

    I sincerely hope that a future British government will do justice to this cause.

    I hope so, too, Pete. I toyed with learning the names of those who gave their lives, and recite them the next time I visited the High Commission here.
