He's lucky he wasn't arrested!

Hong Kong is just another Chinese city at this point. The 50 year 1 country 2 system framework is completely dead.

I lived there for nearly 6 years, I was there during Occupy Central and I have former colleagues whose sons have been arrested under the National Security Law.

I will NEVER visit HK again. Just as I will never visit #CCPChina.

i work for a big financial firm - like all other similar firms, all the IT infrastructure that serves the various sub-businesses are being moved out of HK to Singapore/Japan. Some cannot, as they need direct connections to the HK exchanges, but everything else is being moved out of HK. Everybody wants to reduce their business exposure to HK to near zero.

Hong Kong is nothing but an authoritarian terror state. Zero freedom. Everything citizens to - every email, work conversation, meeting they attend - is monitored and recorded. Any gathering of more than 2 people is closely watched. People living there need to realize things will get even worse.

Hong Kong - the sewer of Communist China.

What do you expect from a communist country? There’s a fine line between China and North Korea.

HK is now part of China so not surprising really.

I want to know about “Mr Wally”! What does he do? Why was he denied entry if he was a busker?

And the worst part is, even if you leave, they still interprets laws to treat you as a HKer. Lots of people leaving HK, taking up Brits citizenship are still not able to withdraw their accrued retirement funds, because China doesn't recognise their Brits citizenship.

You raise a good point.

For my way of thinking. I'd far prefer to forfeit any retirement fund (very dubious as to whether China would even pay it anyway) and live in peace and freedom in the UK, Canada, NZ, Australia etc.

The window for Hong Kongers to escape that cesspit is almost shut.
