Hundreds of young Chinese, in front of the British Consulate in Hong Kong, sing God Save the Queen and shout “Great Britain Saves Hong Kong”, a rally call in London by 130 parliamentarians demand that British citizenship be given to residents of the former colony.
The surprise collapse of a small Inner-Mongolia Chinese bank, Baoshang, has suddenly focused attention on the fragility of the world’s largest and largely opaque banking system. The timing is very bad, as China struggles with a sharp domestic economic slowdown.
