The Ultimate Tribute to Elizabeth II & England via Hong Kong

I think this story out of Hong Kong is bigger than people realize:

A business executive who gave her surname So admitted that Elizabeth II’s death had made her nostalgic and that she felt “less of a connection” with China’s Communist Party leaders in Beijing. “I only realised how good it was after I lost it,” she said, referring to the city since its handover.

An 80-year-old retiree, who gave his surname Poon, was holding a bunch of red lilies and spoke bluntly. “In the past we had human rights, equality before the law, and protections in many aspects,” he said. “But now, I would not comment on the present, I dare not.”

Nothing cures people of a love of communism like having to live under it and nothing makes people appreciate the benefits of living under what once was the British Empire then the loss of the rights that British common law brought.
