This is weekly news in China, some company will list TW/HK as separate countries and people go ape shit. I like to mess with things from the inside and I'm working on a report at the moment with plenty of references to Taiwan, and I have insisted we refer to it throughout as a country.
General consensus in mainland China is that HK is acting like a spoiled brat, there was a meme going around to that effect. Other than that, and all the "foreign influences" provoking a "colour revolution", there's not much about HK. Fucking shit loads of nationalistic propaganda everywhere though, things are really gearing up for 1 October.
