Hong Kong protesters have been out in force once again this weekend as they have been every weekend since March and after they called on America for help last month, and America did the equivalent of nervously tapping their watch and muttering loudly 'wow, is that the time', the protesters have decided to move on to their former colonial masters for help.
Union Flags are now being waved and 'God Save the Queen' and 'Land of Hope & Glory' is being sung to try and convince London to step in and protect them from Beijing.
Keen to pledge allegiance to Britain, they were even chanting: 'We are British and we will never surrender' although many of the protesters were born after 1997, the year that Britain handed Hong Kong over to the Chinese, so are as British as any other Chinese person would be.
Sorry to disappoint the protesters but modern Britain is not the Britain of the 19th century when we strode the World invading nations and China is too big and powerful for us to even think of upsetting and besides we need a trade deal with the second largest global economy.
So sorry Hong Kong but Britain is not here at the moment but leave a message after the beep and we will get back to you...or not as the case will certainly be.
