On a possible right of abode appeal to Beijing:

Kelvin Ng - Can those legal experts who expressed fear for judicial independence also express some real and concrete solutions for the two issues of non-HK children and residency for foreign domestic helpers?

Patrick Shu Wing-lee - Hong Kong without judicial independence will lose the high autonomy as promised and all other core values needed to preserve "one country, two systems".

 

On Hong Kong becoming the 32nd most expensive city for foreign employees:

Marcus H. Langston - The only thing you save here is tax, but the exact same amount that you have "saved" is then swallowed by school fees, so it's almost exactly the same as the UK in my case.

Dana Mispacha - Hong Kong can be cheap for daily expenses although fresh food is a big expense regardless of whether you shop in supermarkets or wet markets. Unfortunately HK is very expensive when it comes to rents and school fees. And I'm not talking about rents in Repulse bay. Rents everywhere are sky high at the moment, as are school fees!

Barry Yau - Before we weep for foreigners struggling to earn a living, let's remember that some locals are so poor in HK that they literally live in cages.

 

On Jackie Chan's description of HK as the "city of protests":

Harminder Singh - Move to the mainland or North Korea. He will love the peace of no protests there.

Davood Jalili - Well said Jackie.

Wingy Habibi - In fact many HK people do not like Jackie Chan!

Jack Sze - The freedom of protest is what defines Hong Kong … and we are proud of it.

Eric Boost - What happened to you Jackie … you used to be cool?
