Google is so funny!

Google has left China and move to the British territory called Hongkong, to escape from Chinese laws and to propagate unfriendly Chinese news. It can now raise the Union Jack and claim protection from Great Britain. I think it should prepare other options like Macau and Taiwan. And if these proved unworkable as well, then it should look no further than Singapore, where there is internet freedom for it to do what it wants in the name of press freedom. It is quite a common thing to read China bashing news here. I strongly recommend Google to relocate to Singapore if it wakes up from its slumber and found out that Hongkong is in China and no longer a British colony.

This "British territory called Hongkong" is called Hong Kong SAR. You time traveled back to pre-1997?

How come I never think of it? The Hongkong autonomous region can now cooperate with Googles to ensure that press and internet freedom are protected and Beijing would have a hard time dealing with them :)

Simply brilliant!

Hehe,

Dream on.

One call from a mandarin speaking mandarin is enough to make Donald close this loophole in double quick time.

That Bum Ma says the US is committed to internet freedom. He forgets that his jurisdiction and pronouncements end when international borders begin.

And this is 2010 not the Qing Dynasty when the Yanks, Brits, Frenchies and not forgetting the obnoxious Japs tell the imbecilic zombie emperor what to do.

Google will do whatever it takes to make money lah.

Until recently,it has showed itself to bend whereever the wind blows. Google knows that a presence in China is important. I see the move as a "face saver" to the Chinese govt on the mainland. Beijing can enact its censorship laws in HK if it wants to since HK is Chinese territory. But only time will tell if they will or not.

A country with several thousand years of history that has overcome disasters, civil wars, attempted occupation, they could not be bothered with Google, an upstart with barely, what, two decades of existence.

I think China is doing the right thing by not giving in, and Google will suffer the consequence of losing the Chinese market.

China is not America, where a small little country like Israel has so much control over every aspect of American lives. That's the consequence of giving the Jews free rein over the economy and media.

It is not about google, trade, yuan,human rights or democracy.

USA and americans need villain and need to ratchet up its rhetoric against China to keep herself afloat and keep it together, they love the winners(all sphere) and hate losers and death especially their sons and daughters(vietnam& korea and only thing they understad is their own death and they will run with their balls left behind), to be "supreme as world number one" and FORTUNATELY(not unfortunately hahaha) "the scapegoat this time happens to be China."("" from SG1) before Germany, Russia, Cuba, Korea Vietnam,Japan, Hugo Chavez, Muslims, Ahmadinejad... The question is who or which country next, hopefully another civil war to keep their hand from others arse, don't they love arse?

The Americans may think that the Hongkongers can be manipulated like the Taiwanese and South Koreans to fight among themselves. Yes, there is still a Martin Lee and his gangs who sing 'God Save the Queen' every morning.

But this divide and rule tactic doesn't work anymore. Donald Tsang and his gang would not allow it to.

Will it surprise anyone that soon President Obama will claim that Americans are abandoning him.

Me says soon and it shall be soon, Americans are fun and funny. Just enjoy their antics.

Obama may call Queen Elizabeth for help. The war plan on the Opium War should still be in their archive. And Tony will be the best emissary to dictate to the Chinese. And Hongkong can be ceded for another 150 years.

And Chris Patten can return to be the Hongkong Governor. And the Hongkongers will party again. And they can sing God Save the Queen happily there after.

Instead of God Save The Queen, I prefer to sing Jesus Kill The Homos... but they are just the rank and file. In the end, the father trumps the sone and god will indeed save the queen.

Happy easter :)
