THE HONG KONG QUESTION

 

Sir, - Suppose China was another tinpot South American dictatorship rather than a superpower. Instead of meekly agreeing to return it to its rightful owners, the Chinese, would not Mrs Thatcher have told them to take their greedy eyes off Britain's rich colony and given them what she gave the Argentinians over the Falklands/Malvinas? Yours, etc.,

Millbrook Court,
