    I didn't ask if he did, I asked if his family did.

    The problem with social media platforms is unlike "publishers", as "platforms" for public discourse they received immunity from litigation for what was posted on their platform. Yet, as time has gone on they have become more and more like publishers, they can't have it both ways. If they want to act like publishers then fine but take away the immunity from litigation that was given to them when they didn't have armies of editors controlling public discourse like something out of Communist China.

    China is going to destroy HK. It had a very different culture and society than the rest of China and much more freedoms. But that's over now. Just another region in a huge, oppressive dictatorship.

    Ok but where are we going to house an extra 3 million people if they do decide to come?

    Imagine seriously thinking 3 million people are going to migrate to the other side of the planet.

    The Lefties must be bluescreening right now.

    On one hand it’s another 3.5m outsiders, and Lefties know that outsiders are far easier to turn against the natives. But on the other hand, these immigrants have seen communism up close, so might be highly resistant.

    Quite the pickle.

    Sounds like he has great herd immunity plans, let the elderly and those of relatively poor health die of COVID-19 and then replace the population drop with Hong Kong immigrants that will pay their taxes.

    Or once again the lower income UK born nationals will be kicked in the teeth, unable to get on the housing ladder and forced to pay astronomical rents until the day they drop dead.

    You can now be arrested and jailed (potentially for life) as a foreign citizen when you visit HK for anything anti-regime you have ever said or written anywhere in the world, as per article 38 of the new national security law. Nice.

    Yes and most of those didn't even have a legit reason of legal entry and they still got to stay.

    If we say to HK 3 million of them can come over, a lot will come. Especially now China is ******* them over. The up is there isn't a massive cultural and moral rift between UK and HK culture.
