Actually, neither Britain nor any other European country ever controlled China. Britain tried to gain influence and went to war against China in 1842 as the Chinese wouldn't let British sell opium (heroine!) to China. At the end of this small-scale war China had to hand over part of Hong Kong to Britain and make some other minor concessions. This triggered rivlaries in the Far East between the European colonial powers, each keen to have its port(s) and concessions. Although all this was very demeaning for the Chinese, the competition between the European powers had the effect of preventing any one country from gaining control.
