The UK could offer British National (Overseas) passport holders in Hong Kong a path to citizenship if China does not suspend plans for a security law in the territory, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says […]

There are 300,000 BNO passport holders in Hong Kong who already have the right to visit the UK for up to six months without a visa.

But the Home Office confirmed that the proposed new rights, allowing those eligible to spend 12 months in the UK without a visa, could be offered to anyone with BNO status as long as they applied for and were granted the passport – opening it up to 2.9m Hong Kong residents.

I have a plan.

The evil Chinese Communist Party will only make life ever more worse for Hong Kong. So give 2.9 million civilised, educated, energetic, entrepreneurial Hong Kongers full citizenship now. Bring them in, bring their money in, cut taxes, deregulate and watch a spectacular economic fireworks display.

But that’s a lot of homes and school places and other such things. So we make room by encouraging commies to ship out and go the other way. I’m serious. They should be encouraged to go. The Lord knows we have enough workshy layabout leftists stinking the place up, blaming everything on capitalism. So they can sod off the other way to enjoy the delights of life controlled by their ideological companions.

It’s a win-win all round.

  1. So they can sod off the other way to enjoy the delights of life controlled by their ideological companions.

    Don’t hold you’re breath on that one.

  2. Seriously, the government has a golden opportunity here. If I were making these decisions in the US, Australia, Canada or some other part of the Empire I’d be doing the same.

  3. If the U.K. government can take in 300,000 African & Arab third world rapists and assorted dross.

    It can take in 300,000 civilised, educated, energetic, entrepreneurial Hong Kongers.

    Do you seriously believe that the Johnson-Cummings government will contemplate letting even 50,000 Hong Kongers into the UK, never mind three million? They were elected on an overtly anti-immigration manifesto and will not dare to break it, however worthy the cause.

    No, not for a second.

    But will happily, bu hook or by crook.

    Let in 50,000 Arab & African rapists and other assorted third world dross.

    The question should be…why?

    Oh, and don’t get me started on the useless oaf..Priti Patel

    Says much..achieves nothing..ever.

  6. Peter –

    Not anti-immigration. It was a platform of controlling who comes into the country. Page 20:

    https://assets-global.website-files.com/5da42e2cae7ebd3f8bde353c/5dda924905da587992a064ba_Conservative%202019%20Manifesto.pdf

    The vote to leave the EU was, among other things, a vote to take back control of our borders.

    That is why a majority Conservative Government will get Brexit done, and then introduce a firmer and fairer Australian-style points-based immigration system, so that we can decide who comes to this country on the basis of the skills they have and the contribution they can make – not where they come from. Migrants will contribute to the NHS – and pay in before they can receive benefits.

    Our new system gives us real control over who is coming in and out. It allows us to attract the best and brightest from all over the world.

    Only by establishing immigration controls and ending freedom of movement will we be able to attract the high-skilled workers we need to contribute to our economy, our communities and our public services. There will be fewer lower-skilled migrants and overall numbers will come down. And we will ensure that the British people are always in control.

    That’s not “anti-immigration”.

  7. That’s not “anti-immigration”.

    Pete

    Try selling the idea of three million Chinese immigrants to The Sun and the Daily Express. You will get eaten alive.

  8. don’t get me started on the useless oaf..Priti Patel

    Yes Harri, she is a dimwit among dimwits. It’s a toss-up between Patel and Liz Truss for the title of stupidest cabinet minister. Well ok, maybe Matt Hancock should be in the frame as well. Let’s have fair play.

  9. Peter.

    In your considered opinion.

    Who would benefit the UK more reference social cohesion as just one example.

    300,000 civilised, educated, energetic, entrepreneurial Hong Kongers.

    Or, 300,000 uncivilised African & Arab third world stuck in the 7th century backward thinking people, who have lived their whole lives in war torn Tribalism shit-holes? Who will not change their tribal hatred no matter how much the liberal progressives squeal?

  10. Peter.

    I sort of lost interest when Priti Patel came by luck, in charge of the Foreign aid budget, in a blaze of the usual buffoonery, bullshit and bollocks.

    She “pledged” in all public announcements. “ enough, the foreign aid will be reduced by half”

    It actually increased by 1.4 billion pounds.

    And she hasn’t stopped bullshitting since.

  11. Yes Harri, she is a dimwit among dimwits.

    Racist?

    Only joking, just like the likes of Priti, we know and fully understand how it all works by now.

  12. Harri

    There is no proposal to immigrate 300,000 Africans and Arabs. Or if there is I must have missed it.

    I agree that 300,000 educated and entreprenurial Hong Kongers could give the UK economy a much-needed boost. But there is zero chance of it happening, the right-wing newspapers will make sure of that. And anyway, Johnson-Cummings don’t want to annoy China.

  13. Peter.

    Okay, my mistake, the Africans & Assorted Arabs must simply be turning their backs on the UK.

    Phew.

    That was a close one, I mean, there are only so many Doctors, Scientists, Nurses and Entrepreneurial people from the Sub-Saharan Africa, and the stuck in the 7th century war-torn tribalism Arab world we can take in.

    “You will not change them, they will change you”

    Tip of the hat to Phantom.

  14. And anyway, Johnson-Cummings don’t want to annoy China.

    They’ve already done so. The UK has issued a joint statement with Australia, Canada and the US about Peking’s actions on Hong Kong. Tory backbenchers are strongly anti-China also. Well, the ones who haven’t been bought off are. The PTP is charting something of its own course on China and so far it’s taken Boris along.

  15. I don’t agree that there would be a backlash from the right wing press or most Tory voters if we allowed thousands of Hong Kong citizens here. Explained with confidence and determination I think they would be welcomed by all but the most knuckle headed racists – who don;t vote for any of the mainstream parties anyway.

  16. The left would oppose it more than the right, because the left supports China.

  17. They’ve already done so. The UK has issued a joint statement with Australia, Canada and the US about Peking’s actions on Hong Kong.

    Big deal. The only response that will make China think would be to reverse the Huawei 5G decision and cancel the Hinckley nuclear power station. I understand that the first of these is now a possibility but the second has not got to first base.

    Last week a UK university (Warwick I think) had a student debate on the motion to condemn China for its Hong Kong iron fist policy. It was defeated because of hundreds of Chinese students doing as they were told by Beijing. The extent if Chinese infiltration of our universities needs to be highlighted and then reversed.

  19. Agreed about the universities, many of which I hope go bust. Over the years China has infiltrated and bought into many institutions in the West. If your income depends on selling out to evil then you shouldn’t be in business.

  20. I don’t agree that there would be a backlash from the right wing press or most Tory voters if we allowed thousands of Hong Kong citizens here.

    Good luck with that Colm. The likely response would be that at a time of economic depression and mass-unemployment the last thing that the UK should do is welcome mass migration from Hong Kong. “They will steal our jobs and houses!” will be one of the more polite responses. Nigel Farage would get a new lease of life and the embers of the Brexit Party would be re-ignited instantly. That would be enough for the Tories to run a mile, assuming that Cummings had not already vetoed it in Downing Street.

  21. I still disagree Peter. I think financially independent clever entrepreneurial Hong Kongers would not be seen as job stealers or welfare claimants which they clearly wouldn’t be at all and attempts to portray them as negative leachers on Britain wouldn’t work. Of course there would be some negative reaction but I don’t think it would be as bad as you make out.

  22. Peter –

    Colm is right. You seem to think that the UK is an anti-immigrant country. The contrary is true. What many objected to was the inability to control who comes here. Not being able to determine who may come in is a negation of the idea of nation. So it’s not surprising that all polls showed a massive drop in anti-immigration feeling straight after the EU referendum.

    Done sensibly, in a controlled way and for the benefit of the country, the UK is pro-immigration and much more pro-immigration than almost anywhere else.

  23. Pete

    There is zero chance of the UK accepting more than 50,000 Hong Kongers, and even that might be pushing it. Watch out for “rumblings” among Tory MPs in response to emails from concerned Daily Mail, Sun, Express, Torygraph readers constituents.

    Farage will speak for many millions: “The country is in crisis, why make it worse? Where will they all live? They can’t all be educated wealthy entrepreneurs surely! We have enough Chinese restaurants. We didn’t vote for Brexit to have a new wave of immigration, our schools are full already, yada yada yada”

  24. Peter –

    The left would be well ahead of Farage et al in opposing such an idea. The left is sympathetic of the Chinese communists.

  25. I doubt very much if the left are sympathetic of the Chinese regime for the simple reason that it is no longer Communist, just authoritariao- and although they may not be too enamoured of the Hong Kong entrepreneurs they will struggle on purely racial grounds to oppose such immigration. The left will be neutral about a pro Hong Kong citizenship policy

  26. The left is sympathetic of the Chinese communists.

    Starmer has not spoken on the Hong Kong crisis so far. Labour needs to decide on its view asap, but I’m not expecting them to back mass immigration. That didn’t help them in the election and they will be reluctant to give Cummings-Johnson a new opportunity for attack.

    So I expect that the Hong Kongers will be left in Hong Kong, apart from the hundreds of Hong Kong millionaires who will of course be welcomed by the Tories with open arms – no political donations required guys, but if you want to give…

  27. Some decades ago, and in the run up to the return of Hong Kong to China, there was a significant exit is of Hong Kong people to Sunset Park Brooklyn, And area not far from me.

    They have been very good for that neighborhood, and for Brooklyn and New York City

  28. I would welcome thousands of Hong Kongers moving to London. They would be an asset wherever they went.

  29. The right-wing backlash to giving any Hong Kongers rights of residence has started already. There will be much more like this very soon:

    “England, where 90 per cent of migrants to UK shores settle, is the most densely populated major country in Europe with necessarily strict planning laws. South East England and London, to where two in every five new migrants gravitate, have population densities that are nearly off the scale.

    The shortage of housing has become a major political issue, so has population-based pressure on public services and so has the impact of oversupply of foreign labour on working-class employment prospects and wages.

    Yet such was the intensity of the group hug that followed the government’s announcement that nobody from any political party appeared to press Ms Patel or Mr Rabb to publish their coherent and detailed plans for the flexing up of the housing stock and wider infrastructure to cope with a possible mass influx from Hong Kong. That was a stroke of luck for them because they don’t have any…”
