The fool who fancies he is full of wisdom
While he sits by his hearth at home.
Quickly finds when questioned by others .
That he knows nothing at all.

Thousands more join Hong Kong protests

Thousands more people have been joining pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, ahead of what organisers hope will be the largest day of protests so far.


Tens of thousands of people have been blocking parts of the city for days.

They are demanding that China withdraw plans to vet candidates for the next leadership election in 2017.

Current leader CY Leung has urged the protesters to go home, and Chinese President Xi Jinping has reaffirmed Beijing?s influence on the territory.

Mr Xi told party leaders in Beijing that his government would ?unswervingly implement the guidelines of ?one country, two systems? and the Basic Law, and steadfastly safeguard the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macau?
