It quite simply appaling. The worst bit is China is so powerful that there's nothing anyone can do. This is the real injustice the world should be uniting against.

They're an industrious people, they'd probably have their own "New Hong Kong" built somewhere in the British countryside before we would even send in for planning permission.

US import authorities have seized 13 tons of weaves made from human hair believed to be taken from Uyghers in concentration camps. Sickening.

Really is f**ked up over there. Given choice, I’d certainly make a conscious effort to buy products not ‘made in China’ even if it meant a small price increase.

Knowing the Chinese are a law unto themselves; with a Hong Kong population of what? 7.5 million, would they let 3 million of what they'd call Chinese citizens to go? That's going to be interesting. I think it was right to put this on a different thread. I think the citizens of Hong Kong would probably go to a few places and not just the UK. I'm sure some of them would be in demand with things like IT skills and they'd be able to go anywhere but I still think Australia would be a favourite place to go.

I expect a fair few of the more skilled population will end up in Australia, and the US. Australia in particular will be selective in allowing entry, the rest will probably end up here, irrespective of what, if anything they bring.

So that's homes and jobs for the best part of up to 3m  that Boris and Co have to magic up at a time of crisis.

It will certainly be interesting how it's magically solved.

None here either but it looks like I said earlier was right; China sees these 3 million as Chinese citizens and so won't allow it and Rabb said before it they'd have no power to stop them.

I wouldn't be surprised if with the state of the UK at the moment if the residents of Hong Kong didn't take the chance of staying put - the grass isn't always greener.

Can they live in the houses of the people who have said they are leaving the UK to go and live in the EU?

Would those be the ones who voted to remain in the UK but who lost their freedom to go live and work within the EU?

If they're the ones who said they are going to leave the UK and go and live in the EU, then yes.

Did people not live & work in European countries before we joined The Common Market then?

I know that you lose an argument as soon as you mention a certain German dictator but to me the Chinese commie leader is an exact copy of that German chap.

In some ways potentially more dangerous considering the modern technology and the numbers they possess.

Have the lunatics finally taken over the asylum? According to the nutty professor from the LSE, it is only a drop in the ocean among the scheme of things. As our economy is far smaller than theirs, it follows that it is an even smaller drop in their ocean, and in any event, why should we be giving aid to a belligerent China when we could be giving it to the genuinely poor nations, or preferably to our own poor.

Xi Jinping believes that all the dictators that failed did so when they became soft and he is determine to keep his vice grip on China and so needs to crush any dissension. He believes that this is for the good off the majority over the individual and that the odd discretion is a price worth paying for dragging his country out of poverty, of course he benefits from the retention of power.

Always found it weird that India and China get foreign aid while they are launching billion dollar rockets into space.
