 Liang Zhenying: one of the stupidest aspects of the BNO plan of the British government


On the evening of April 24, Liang Zhenying wrote on Facebook that the stupidest thing about the BNO plan formulated by the British government is that the Chinese government will allow Hong Kong people participating in the BNO program to continue to have Chinese nationality and the right of abode in Hong Kong after applying for BNO visa.

Liang also suggested that the Chinese government can take the time to announce the new policy, requiring BNO holders participating in the scheme to choose between British nationality and Hong Kong right of abode. In the end, he quipped, the world would know the attraction of Britain.

On July 22, local time, the British government announced the detailed regulations for Hong Kong people holding BNO to apply for residence and naturalization. From January 2021, people holding BNO can apply for a new visa to stay in the UK for up to five years, and then apply for settlement. Naturalization can be applied after 12 months of residence. They can also carry immediate family members, including children born after 1 July 1997.

The official website of the British government also listed six conditions for applicants to meet. At that time, many netizens commented that the British made as much as Hong Kong people $ before they arrived, the British government made a sum of money. If they decided to go, they should have certain financial resources. If you dont have money, you dont know how to wait for six years..

Recently, the British government has frequently used the passport issue to hype it. At a regular press conference held by the foreign ministry on July 23, Chinas Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that China firmly opposes the British behavior and will consider not recognizing the British National (Overseas) passport as a valid travel document.

China firmly opposes this. As the British side violates its promise, China will consider not recognizing the British National (Overseas) passport as a valid travel document and reserves the right to take further measures. On the evening of the 23rd, the Hong Kong SAR government made a solemn statement on the British governments announcement that BNO holders or eligible holders of Chinese citizens in Hong Kong would be provided with residence and Naturalization routes in the UK. A spokesman for the SAR government solemnly pointed out that the British government took some high-profile measures under the pretext of Hong Kongs national security law, which was purely a political operation. It not only seriously violated its commitment, but also seriously interfered in the affairs of the Hong Kong SAR. The British government unilaterally announced the suspension of the arrangement agreement on the transfer of Fugitive Offenders signed with Hong Kong, and then made a big fuss on the issue of British National (Overseas) passport. The SAR government expressed dissatisfaction and opposition to this and urged the British government to stop interfering in the affairs of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and return to normal.
