JohnLam16796690 As a former expat in China years ago, I would advise anybody even thinking about trying to find work there to think again. The entire dynamic has changed. The CCP does not want foreign help anymore. And they’d rather move to Shanghai, which is in China. It is the year long violence and vandalism that scare people off. WSJ tries hard to make it look like the other way.

They can come back for a million dollars... Shame English teaching pedophiles won’t be residing in HK. Move they can move to Taiwan? Heard Taiwanese women love foreign men, can’t stand their own. For expats who are still in HongKong CCP China That's just normal. Who wants to stay in a place with no freedom.

'Come to Lebanon' hongKongindependence Just like all authoritarian takeovers, the dictator starts twisting the screw by hand, then uses a screwdriver, tries other methods like a drill, then ends up whacking with a hammer repeatedly in anger as the screw just doesn’t fit. HongKongNeedsHelp Is WSJ talking about expats from US and UK only? I know different countries people still want to come to HK and China. So biased, pathetic. I once praise highly of WSJ but now..........? Media knelt before political dictatorship *sigh*

Perfect. Free to leave, free to stay. With all sorts of sanctions in place, hk is sure to grow brighter than ever. Great. Let the Chinese take back the Chinese city! Plus. We don’t need those CIA’s assets in HK, also, no white supremacy Americans That man is too big for that little woman. Once they knew how hard their lives back home would be, they might think otherwise. Unfortunately, someone got your post already.

Any idea where they are going? SE Asia? We need to recognise the fact that CCP is turning Hong Kong into just another Chinese city. This is what China wants too. And the day ain’t far when China will fully integrate Hong Kong w/ mainland China, this causing Hong Kongers to face the same level of surveillance as mainlanders. Hong Kongers best move to the UK while they still can.
