The same yardstick does not seem to be used for the Hong Kong people.

Under the Tories non EU immigration has gone through the roof, many if not most from the old empire indian sub continent, but let's not forget when we get Brexit we will be able to get rid of them, init!

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

Looks like this has moved back into the limelight; Laws passed by China have further restricted human rights. Richer Hong Kong citizens have started flight to neighbouring countries.

Sooner UK welcomes them, their money and their businesses, the better.

I am for once almost inclined to agree with you.

Some years ago South Africa opened it’s doors to Hong Kong Chinese and there was an influx of several thousand, no problem. Mostly shopkeepers and traders – the wealthy went mostly to Taiwan or Singapore.

But don’t look for salvation from Chinese immigrants, they don’t mingle well and tend to set up in small enclaves - highly disciplined mini China towns.

And if they set up a business they prefer to employ other Chinese – they expect their employees to be as hardworking as themselves.

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

Boris today: "It violates Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy and is in direct conflict with Hong Kong basic law.

"The law also threatens the freedoms and rights protected by the Joint Declaration.

"We made clear that if China continued down this path we would introduce a new route for those with British national overseas status to enter the UK granting them limited leave to remain with the ability to live and work in the UK and thereafter to apply for citizenship and that is precisely what we will do now."

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

IMO too little too late.

1.Will they be permitted to leave?

2.Will they be allowed to send monies overseas?
