You would like to live under the rule of a corrupt dictatorship thousands of miles away which will eventually come to decide every facet of your country without your permission, with no obligation to provide you with human rights?The Brits and the West Brits do exactly what the USA tell them to do. This colour coded crap in HK is a rerun of Ukraine, Arab Spring etc. Ireland's role should be to send Hazel Chu and her family over on one way tickets to broker peace. Then we should take a very close look at our own Chinese and West Brit trouble makers.
Why do you think the Hong Kong people should be willing? They have few rights as it is, they want to preserve them thank you very much.
