There , too , under China 's post-1997 regime , Peking would be free to declare Martial Law ; and there , too , a garrison of the People 's Liberation Army would stand ready to suppress opposition or criticism by whatever means Deng and his successors deemed appropriate . More grist has filled the pessimists ' mill in the years since the Joint Declaration , as Peking has grown more assertive and London more timid . Within months of the signing ceremony (a), China was objecting vigorously to British proposals for introducing a meaningful degree of democracy to Hong Kong 's political structure . Britain bowed limply to China 's demands -- even though this meant weaseling-out of previous pledges to put a representative elected government into Hong Kong before 1997 , and even though Peking itself had promised a ` Hong Kong run by Hong Kong people ' .

By the end of August Winchelsey resolved to save his church and the kingdom by allying with the laity who were now on the edge of rebellion . Back in February 1297 the barons had objected to a summons to serve away from the king . By July they were objecting to overseas service at all . Later that month an ambiguous assembly in the king 's chamber granted a subsidy of one eighth and a fifth and a wool prise of 8000 sacks in return for a royal promise to confirm the charters . In August the earls Bigod and Bohun protested at the exchequer against the grant of an eighth , which was already being collected .

And as to dictatorships -- in which he says two people in every 100 are interested in politics as opposed to three in a hundred in a democracy -- you could argue that some dictatorships succeeded because they appealed to primitive instincts in people who were not interested in politics . ` That was true of Mussolini and Hitler above all ; and to some extent of Reagan , you see . People would say in America , ` He 's given us back our self-respect . ' ' I was (tense) objecting that , whatever you thought of Reagan , the United States was the archetypal democracy ; Mr Healey was remarking how very few people bothered to vote there at all , only one in five of the eligible voters having been enough to elect Bush ; and then we arrived obliquely at the part played in politics by exhaustion .

Now , Muze magazine may not have been a high profile organisation but it did provide a much needed platform for the flourishing Manchester rock scene . To see this platform threatened by a mere Smiths ' power game , hardly proved good PR for the band and a degree of bad feeling began to boil away in their home city . The irony was that The Smiths were (tense) objecting to an article which suggested that they had become governed by power and finance with an action that was itself a display of power and finance . A report in this peculiar state of loggerheads in the high powered but ill-fated Hit magazine hardly eased The Smiths ' credibility problem . But at least the rift with Rough Trade appeared to have been solved . A news snippet in Sounds seemed to put the situation succinctly into perspective :

Estimates had shown that an extra 5 billion would be needed on top of the existing 25 billion to keep afloat the E.C . farm budget . If the pressure was on McSharry from the accountants concerned about ever increasing costs , it was also coming from the environmentalists who were (tense) objecting to taxpayers funding intensive farming which they believed was damaging the environment . Since 1973 the number of farmers in the E.C . had dropped by 35% , increasing unemployment and ending for many farmers a link with the land which stretched back many generations . This was something McSharry wanted to prevent yet production had to be brought into line with consumer demand and budget ceilings , the problem was how ?

In particular he referred to the enormous growth of the arms industry in America , which by 1960 directly employed 3.5 million people .

Eisenhower was not(tense) objecting to the building of strong defence forces , but stressing the need for civilian control over the whole area of defence and foreign policy . It was a warning all the more impressive for being delivered by an old soldier .

UNITA 's spokesman , Norberto de Castro , insisted that his organisation was ready to initial the documents , which would have established the framework for a ceasefire and the transition to a pluralist democracy .

But behind the headline numbers lurked the truth , disguised in a veil of what the property market calls confidentiality clauses and what others call secret deals . ` Property deals , unlike those in the stock market have no transparency , if required . Not only are they not transparent , a property deal can be struck subject to just about anything , ' said UBS . More bluntly they , and many in the market , were(tense) objecting to the prices paid by tenants to landlords for their shop units and offices being kept secret from the market . Secret sales of property were also subject to the same lambasting . The objection is that secrecy makes it very difficult to assess the value of a deal and therefore to judge the true state of the market .

It was acquired by enthusiasts for preservation , but on examination by an expert , was found to be rotten beyond repair and scrapped . Nos. 36-45 Built by George F. Milnes & Co. , at Hadley , in 1902(a) . Although numbered in the same series as the original cars , this batch in fact belonged to the B.E.T . and not to the Corporation . The bodies were similar to Nos. 1-35 , but contained a number of small improvements . Because the Metropolitan Police were objecting to reversed stairs which obstructed the driver 's vision to the left , 36-45 had Milnes ` Exhibition ' staircases , which took a wide sweep in what is now known as the ` Normal ' direction , i.e. the bottom step just behind the controller and the top step close to and at right angles to the bulkhead . The sweep was wider than that of most of their imitators . They had Tidswell lifeguards .
