A lot of people, those with the means at any rate will want to leave. Some probably already have.I love Hong Kong and would be delighted to see it stay as it is, but really, where do they think this is going? Sure they might delay the extradition bill this time with their Les Mis songs and umbrellas, but come on, the future is writ large, a snail may as well protest against the wheels of an oncoming juggernaut as Hong Kongers protest against their inevitable fate.
They simply must grin and bear it, the Royal Yacht Britannia isn't going to sail back over the horizon (not that any protestor thinks it will, I am being metaphorical) there is only one direction in which Hong Kong is travelling and the sooner they adjust their mindsets to that reality the better it will be for them.
Sad but true.
