Weather Report part 1


  • This cartoon appeared in 1996, the year before Hong Kong "reunified" with the People's Republic of China on
    July 1, 1997

  • Wong Chuk Hang: factory district on Hong Kong island

  • Hong Kong's weather is given in degrees Celsius
  • "Advocating two Chinas" (i.e. Taiwanese independence) is a criminal offense in the PRC
  • In the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984, China promised to maintain Hong Kong's current political, economic and social systems intact for 50 years after the Anschluss -- I mean, "reunification"
  • Deng Xiaoping verbally extended the above promise to 100 years
