Opinion | Hong Kong has a sound foundation for a bright future under ‘one country, two systems’

Opinion | The UK has no ‘moral obligation’ to Hong Kong. What it has is colonial nostalgia

Britain is mute about its own national security legislation, but obsessed with demonising the national security law for Hong Kong. The British must accept that they have no rights and duties over Hong Kong after 1997, and abide by basic norms of international relations.
