Love stay stay,no stay roll.
I don't understand why so many Hongkongers have an illusion that British are any better than Communists.
The best thing one can do for himself and family is to pack his bags and move out to Great Britain. So many did in 1997, and so many went back to HK.
the sun also rises
Just like the cross-border milk powder foumula incident.Let's look into the cause of the phenomenon. Probably our compatriots have lost confidence in the milk powder produced on Mainland after so many cases related to contaminated milk powder had taken place ! Why so many readers of this website vote to return to British Overseas Territory (holders of the BNO) and they are probably educated middle class---the pillar of Hong Kong ? They might also lose confidence in the appointed guys ruling Hongkong too.
No, it is totally unacceptable and could shake the boat beyond description and repairs well before 2047! At the most, China could consider allowing Hong Kong to be the Asian Headquarters of the United Nations as there is indeed need for the world body to have one away from New York! After all, China is destined to overtake USA and become the super economic power in less than a decade and the super power possibly before 2050!
Being dissatisfied with the current state of affairs in Hong Kong is one thing but totally changing the political scenario as SAR of PRC is another - just an impossible dream!
It is as simple as a child, those people, who have voted HK to return to a British overseas territory,Just get out of HK and move to the UK immediately.
