Letter to Mr Gove

Hong Kong - Featured image 6

Dear Mr Gove,

I am a year six student at Hammond School in Lightwater, Surrey which is part of your constituency in Surrey Heath. I am writing to you in regards of the Hong Kong crisis. I know the recent events in Hong Kong have been increasing violent because of China imposing a new law on Hong Kong. The young people there are protesting for democracy and human rights, they feel that China will take control and deprive them of there freedoms.

Britain should not intervene under any circumstances. If Britain was to intervene physically, China might send in it's colossal army and annihilate British forces. Not only would Britain's army be severely weakened, the economy would tumble, as China is a major trading partner, if they stop trading with us the results would be catastrophic.

Britain signed the Sino British-joint declaration, they gave Hong Kong back to China, we are nothing to do with them any more.Words would not help either, why should China listen to us? To them we are just three miniscule countries that are one eighth of their size and one sixteenth of their power. They could destroy us in more ways than one.

As I have illistrated, I do not think intervening in the Hong Kong crisis would be advisable. If we were to intervene the results would be inauspicious. I hope you take this letter into consideration, come the time where you may be contemplating wether to intervene or not.

Yours Sincerely,
