The Rule of Law is Very Much Alive in Hong Kong

The generally peaceable demonstrations in Hong Kong are more than merely student protests in that they reflect the desire to hold onto the basic rights of man which became a fundamental principle in the development of British democracy following Magna Carta of 1215 AD.

The reason why people express their free will in Hong Kong is because it was a British territory established under British law, just as Australia was established by the British under the rule of law. Of course, just across the border, any such expression of free will would be severely dealt with by the Chinese authorities as will be the case in Hong Kong when the Chinese government assumes total control of the island in 28 years, or before.

It was a great shame that Britain could not have found some way to have maintained the island of Hong Kong without the new territories and the water it supplied when its 99 year lease expired in 1997 but instead consigned its former people of Hong Kong to future dictatorial rule.

This is why the Australian Monarchist League works assiduously to protect the Australian Constitution and the Crown within it as we believe that democracy and freedom would be impaired were the Crown to be removed.
