The British prime minister added that China’s decision to impose a national security law on Hong Kong will “curtail its freedoms and dramatically erode its autonomy”.“If China imposes its national security law, the British government will change our immigration rules,” Johnson said. About 350,000 of the territory’s people currently hold such passports and another 2.5 million would be eligible to apply for them, Johnson said.

Why do you still drag on? Just do it. Those Hong Konger could be western which is what they have been pursuiting.

Good news and hurry up. It could be the only win-win game in this year.
