    Do you think we could manage to pull that off? Canvey Island is probably the limit of our current capabilities, and that's only if there isn't a stag party at the time...

    Going to HK next week. Turns out our hotel is about 15 mins away from the 'festivities'. Should be interesting!

    We should really consider military intervention only if ladymuck's hotel isn't up to the standards she expects

    We can thank the Clinton administration for inviting the vampire across the threshold.

    "China is, and always was the next global threat to world peace following in the steps of Nazi Germany"

    granted, not a Nazi, but Kaiser Bill was apparently very anti Chinese and Japanese.

    There's also the popular myth that the Bible advises "beware the yellow peril".

    We really shouldn't interfere and in 50 years time the Hong Kong residents can blame the UK for all their ills, oh sorry that will happen either way.

    We did promise to look after them so we should. That truly is the British way.
