There's a basic contradiction between the wish for a democratic Hong Kong and the desire for more control from Beijing.

It actually doesn't matter who is the CE, as long as the political system is not reformed, I don't see any hope for reconciliation between the democrats and pro-Beijing parties.

to be supported by Beijing is far more important than having the democracy they never had, because the former means stablity (although in an authoritarian way) and the latter means conflict and risks, which the financial market hates (more than authoritarism).

One would be naive to expect China to let go HK on whatever way it chooses, because it will have consequences for mainland China - once the door is open, what if there is another 1989?

I don't see any relevance to Singapore. Singapore is fine, until a Malacca strait is replaced by something else.

I think most things won't change....

Hong Kong has advantages Singapore dosn't have.

Vice versa, Singapore has advantages Hong Kong dosn;t have.

Where is more stable, where is more developed.

Singapre's GDP per capita is USD 50000+ , while HK is 30000+
