Hong Kong - Its past, the current and future - where is it heading?

Without any question and plenty of evidence to back it up. Primarily, but not exclusively, the septics
Sssssssssssh!
 
What the word from those in HK now on the very recent developments?
 
The CCP is cracking down hard with its new draft of resolutions that completely negate any promises they made to the Hong Kong Chinese...what a surprise that is.

The more freedoms that the Hong Kong Chinese lose to the CCP the more they may look back nostalgically at what they had under Britain.

Unfortunately being rather more geographically challanged they will be unable to join their like minded brothers and sisters in Taiwan.

They are slowly but firmly being brought into line and will be forced to become dutiful subjects of the CCP.

Which promises were those? In detail and from primary sources, please.

If you can't, you could always refer to Hong Kong Basic Law.

Article 18
...
In the event that the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress decides to declare a state of war or, by reason of turmoil within the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region which endangers national unity or security and is beyond the control of the government of the Region, decides that the Region is in a state of emergency, the Central People's Government may issue an order applying the relevant national laws in the Region.
Basic Law being the list of promises the PRC made to HK at the handover.
 
An article on the (neoliberal) 1828.org website suggests giving Hong Kongers UK citizenship, and setting aside an area in the UK for them to resettle in. Well, we have plenty of islands, and the Scottish Government sent some Middle Eastern refugees there a couple of years ago. But is it too late for this sort of initiative? Or would their business talents give us a boost after Brexit?

Aye, that'd go down a treat with the PRC.

What business talents? The only ones emigrating would be the dross and the rioters. It is telling that a number of large companies will not now consider graduates this year from HK universities, they won't run the risk of hiring radicals who could do them reputational damage. The UK will be welcome to them.

I thought all immigrants and refugees are doctors, lawyers and engineers?

The majority of those rioting either weren't born or were very young when the British left.

Eff off. Your points are correct and exactly why we shouldnt let them in. Any business talent will thrive under the PRC so long as politics is booted into touch. The deal is STFU and you'll be ok in the PRC. You got a thriving business ? See how you can start that from scratch in a foreign country.

Exactly. We don't want them.
 
...but very conscious of the freedoms not available to those in mainland China under the CCP, that are now being ignored, circumvented, or removed.
Maybe, but they wont be remembering what the UK did.

A lot of the people with money and business connections already have their foreign passport situation sorted out. That's why there are around 300,000 Canadians in Hong Kong, according to a number of reliable press reports. Most of those will be Hong Kong residents who went to Canada for just long enough to collect their passport (3 years) before heading back to Hong Kong. The situation is probably similar with respect to Australia and a few other countries.

It things begin to go seriously wrong in Hong Kong, then these people and others like them will pull their foreign passports out of the backs of their safes and head off to whichever country's name is on the passport. They'll have long established property and other safe investments waiting for them when they arrive.

The people in Hong Kong who are going to be without options are going to be the average type who are short on the money and marketable skills which other countries are looking for.
