China told the Brit that they would march to Hong Kong if the Brit didn't hand Hong Kong to China. [/quote] Basically right, a coupole minor corrections. The lease was 150 years on Kowloon, 1847 - 1997. It was handed back on schedule. The Chinese troops actually did march into Kowloon a week or two ahead of the handover. The Island (and all the rest of the islands there, which are many, including Lantau where the airport now is) was surrendered back because it had been captured by the Brits rather than leased. But they were indefensible anyway. China had become a superior military force to Britain. [/quote]
