Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

The UK could offer British National (Overseas) passport holders in Hong Kong a path to UK citizenship

If China does not suspend plans for a security law in the territory, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says.

There are 300,000 BNO passport holders in Hong Kong.

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

Thank goodness UK is stepping up to the plate. The sooner we offer sanctuary the better, and don't wait for the Chinese to get vindictive.

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

The Chinese havent a leg to stand on

They rule HK like a colony - they dont put themselves before the electorate there yet impose their "legal" authority over the region.

They have no electoral mandate there whatsoever

Meanwhile in Belfast.......

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

There is a certain irony with the mask issue in the Hong Kong protests. Last autumn you could be arrested for wearing a mask on the streets of Hong Kong. Nowadays it is mandatory.

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

We have someone living with us whose family are in the CCP. When I discussed this issue with him and suggested possible sanctions against China he literally laughed and said China doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks and will do what it likes.

That's about the truth of it I feel

The USA are about the only country with the power and political will to stand up to China but China holds 1.17 Trillion of US debt in bonds.

As a Chines politician once famously said when asked about the threat of China invading the west?

"why would we go to war with the west? we would simply repossess you"

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

Love pick your brains on this as I find China fascinating

I have read that although there is only the CCP from within each region and especially taking into account rural versus urban needs- the CCP candidates whilst aligning overall with the party line on major issues ( national security etc) - are actually as varied in their policies and ideas as many seen between differing parties in the West?

For example USA it’s tweedle Dee and tweedle dum party policy differences, UK Tories v New Labour no difference, even old Oireland not a cigarette paper between policies of 2 parties who have run the state almost since its formation

So whilst the Chinese system is one party the differences in local regions can oft amount to as much choice as in the West

What’s your take Chasey?

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

I would welcome the HK people, and any others, who want to live in a democracy and can offer their skills and intelligence to our economy.
China may laugh and carry on but they will still feel the discomfort of being a world pariah.
I for one am looking very hard at anything I buy online or instore now and am avoiding Chinese goods as far as possible.

Re: Hong Kong UK citizenship offer.

I wonder how the promised trade talks are going with China in readiness for our storming new markets.
