This is the letter I would write to my local MP.
Dear Michael Ellis,
I am writing to you to discuss the crisis in Hong Kong and whether Britain should intervene.
On the one hand, Britain has a moral duty to help. When we signed the Sino-Britsh joint declaration, it immediately meant that China could not try to change the way that Hong Kong was run. Because -according to the citizens of Hong Kong - China have not stuck to that agreement, we should help with what is happening. As we signed Hong Kong over to them, we should help because we should be the ones to remind China about the declaration.
However, there are several reasons why we should not intervene. Firstly, China and Britain are a large trading partner. This means that we might lose a large amount of items being imported into the country that are necessary. For example, here are a few items we have imported from Britain:
Vehicles (excluding rail),
Iron and steel,
Electric machinery. Therefore, we should not intervene because we would lose a lot of items that are needed. Also, I believe that we should not intervene because China has the biggest army in the world. This means that we should not intervene because , if it comes to a war, then it is more likely they will win because they have a bigger army than us.
In conclusion, there are reasons for and against intervening in the Hong Kong crisis. What do you think? If it comes to it,would you vote to intervene in the crisis?
