Dear Foxy,

You asked: What are your objections to the Australian Bureau of Statistics?

I follow a long like of critical thinkers right back to Socrates and I don't have anything against the ABS but when mhaze claims that the ABS is saying only 1 in 20 people in Sydney is Chinese when I am seeing every second person being Chinese in Sydney then I really have to question the basis of the statistics.

Still on m hazes side Mr Opinion, quoting this country's office of statistics is never going to be wrong
Foxy I too fear a massive overreaction from China
My heart is with the protestors
But my brain warns they are in very real danger
China regards loss of face important and I dread waking to news they have crossed in to Hong Kong

"Dear Mr Opinion,

of Statistics?"

It has facts that he'd prefer not to know about.

Foxy, I've taken a vow of silence as regard Mr O. I think he has problems and its just cruel to make fun of his silly assertions. After all a man (?) who asserts that he has the ability to count the numbers of Chinese by walking around Chatswood and thereby prove the ABS is wrong as regards their count, while at the same time asserting that he is one of the most educated people in Australia, is someone who has serious issues with reality.

Dear Foxy,

In the same token mhaze will tell you that every second person in Sydney is Indian - not Chinese.

Actually he's not far off because Sydney is now looking demographically a lot like Singapore: Chinese, Indian, and Others in that order.

Dear mhaze and Mr Opinion,

I'll leave you two to sort things out.

Now back to the topic:

According to the Hong Kong Free Press -
we're told that while China might be exploiting fears
of a bloody "Tiananmen" crackdown on Hong Kong's
protest movement, analysts say the potentially
catastrophic economic and political consequences will
deter Beijing from any overt boots-on-the-ground
intervention.

China's brutal 1989 crackdown on pro-democracy protests
in Beijing's Tiananmen Square resulted in two years of
economic stagnation as the country became an international
pariah.

The fall out from any similar intervention in Hon Kong would
be far more severe according to the Hong Kong Free Press.

They tell us that it would also have a major impact on
Beijing's ambitions to re-unify the mainland with the
democratically governed island of Taiwan.

Not even close to what I said. Illiterate as well as innumerate. Oh dear!
