Nothing I would be ashamed or embarrassed about - just a feeling of utter disbelief that anybody could claim that the new security laws in HK are "aimed at foreign intelligence agencies" (unless you swallow the line that all the HK protests are stirred up by foreign agents, which is palpable rubbish) or "normal practice everywhere". Wholesale threats of imprisonment for daring to criticise the government are not normal practice in any country I would wish to live in.

I think my tone was largely created by my surprise that anybody on this site would peddle such obvious a misrepresentation as if an agent of an undemocratic one-party state.

Of course, there is an outside chance you were trying to be ironic - in which case I suggest you try to be a little bit less subtle another time.

Mathematically correct, but wholly implausible in any but the most bizarre circumstances. I wouldn't bet your pension on it !

If you don't understand the difference between Scotland (which I was talking about) and the north, which you are, you have a bit of a problem. Find a drawing board and get back to it.

Errm. To make an unwanted ground war less likely?

I assume (I hope?) irony is intended.

Utter rubbish, on all counts. I find it hard to understand how anybody posting on this site (unless a false flag) could come up with such a preposterous misrepresentation of the legal and moral position.

It also makes great economic sense. Always nice when doing the right thing and self-interest march in step.

Incorrect. The next election is only irretrievably lost if, as well as the electorate broadly agreeing with you (and it may well not), Labour recovers north of the border. At the moment there is more likelihood of a commemorative squadron of flying pigs.
