I suspect the #Tory rebels are overplaying their hand. So far Boris Johnson has not made any overtures or concessions to Nigel Farage and the #Brexit Party. And Farage will agree to a stitch up with a rump Tory party to get Brexit done. https://www.aljazeera.com/amp/news/2019/09/brexit-crisis-deepens-tory-rebellion-mounts-190902163307969.html #news #politics

#China's state news agency Xinhua warns "the end is coming" for the Hong Kong protesters. Undoubtedly it is. #Beijing cannot tolerate open insurrection--that is rarely a luxury authoritarian governments have. Sooner or later, the crackdown MUST happen. The question is when and how violent will the crackdown be? Another question is whether it will do any good to crack down. Hong Kong is pursuing freedom having once tasted it. All current indicators suggest the people of Hong Kong are determined to retain and even expand their freedoms. The crackdown is coming. It might not do any good, but it is coming. https://asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Hong-Kong-protests/Xinhua-warns-end-is-coming-for-Hong-Kong-protesters #news #HongKong #protests

#China's manufacturing sector is continuing to contract, a casualty of the #trade dispute with the US. This while US manufacturing expanded. How long before this pushes the whole Chinese #economy into recession (assuming it's not already there)? How long can China shed #jobs before the social unrest in Hong Kong starts to spread? In a game of chicken someone eventually has to blink. Who will it be? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-01/china-s-manufacturing-sector-keeps-getting-whacked-by-trump?srnd=economics-vp #news
