LONDON (Reuters) – Britain is prepared to offer extended visa rights and a pathway to citizenship for almost 3 million Hong Kong residents in response to China’s push to impose national security legislation in the former British colony.
Foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Thursday that if Beijing went ahead, Britain would extend the rights of 350,000 ‘British National Overseas’ passport holders.
On Friday the interior ministry said that this policy would apply to all BNOs currently in Hong Kong – a much larger group of around 2.9 million people according to British government figures.
Sure, the quality would be higher than Frau Merkel’s Million Marching Muslim Men Mob in 2015, but 2.9 million?
Meanwhile, the Wall Street “There shall be open borders” Journal is trying to horn in on the action by demanding that Trump admit Hong Kongers (during a colossal depression with tens of millions of Americans suddenly unemployed).
