It is certainly my view. I am suprised that they were not given BNO passpoerts before the handover. We all knew it would end like this eventually.

Would they want to come to the UK? I *think* I remember reading at the time of handover (when HMG should have offered all HKers the opportunity to be UK citizens) that places like Canada were preferred destinations. Obviously, circumstances in HK are different these days.

See the attached statistics from the ONS which shows new UK national insurance numbers allocated to overseas residents in the 12 months up to the end of March. The number is 760,000 which is 17% up year on year. In more detail the increase in the numbers from outside the EU compared to last year is 100,000 which is the highest since the records began. NI allocations to people from Asia are up 50% year on year and there are also big increases from Turkey and Ghana. So, my guess is, whatever Johnson and his government may or may not say in public the reality is that he will make talented Hong Kong citizens welcome.

I see HSBC has come out in support of the CCP. That is massive agg for me, I feel I have to leave them now but it is complicated. Last thing I need at the moment.

It's a hard life being a massively hypocritical pseudo-socialist, I believe.

No anger from me, my dear old thing, but there probably was from the Buddha's wife and children after he abandoned them. And maybe even more so if they ever discovered that his philosophy was to be corrupted and adopted by smug rich westerners centuries later.

Thank you for letting us know the previously unknown thoughts of Buddha's wife and children.

Any comment from Jesus' 2nd cousin or Mohammed's mum we might have missed?

One year ago today the HK protests began in earnest with over 1M people (out of 7.5m) marching on the streets of HK to protest against the proposed law to extradite suspects to mainland China.

Hong Kong now stands on the frontline of the world war between liberal democracy and authoritarianism. Whilst the world focuses elsewhere, HK people continue to protest in vast numbers, and continue to be ignored by the puppet HK government, whilst being beaten, maimed, arrested and imprisoned on trumped up colonial-era, politically motivated charges. The CCP will imminently make it "legal" to arrest 100s of 1000s, if not literally millions of HKers for the "crime" of not supporting the CCP. Fun times.

This is just so sad, I went there for the Palace tour and it really is a special place. I can't believe China has been allowed to do this.
