Skadden refused to talk to RollOnFriday about its sterling work poking China in the eye by treating Hong Kong as an independent country.
Alas, it turns out that wasn't because it was a taciturn rebel above our petty provocations. It was just scared. After the story came out, it quietly amended its website.
Spot the difference.
Tantalisingly, Skadden hasn't said Hong Kong is in China, it's just left it in a deniable limbo. So brave.
