Description

For Neville ('Bunt') Mullard and his mother, Hong Kong is part of Britain - high teas and bad weather, race meetings at Happy Valley, roast beef at Fatty's Chop House and, for Bunt, the 'blue hotels' in Kowloon Tong. Now, Britain is about to hand over Hong Kong to China, but for the Mullards the 'Chinese take-away', as they call it, does not particularly concern them. When Mr Hung, a well-spoken gentleman from the Chinese mainland offers to buy their family business, Imperial Stitching, Bunt refuses them out of hand. But it soon becomes clear that Mr Hung will accept no refusals.
