    Thanks, that is interesting as it seems to show roughly the same number of Pakistani and Chinese.

    That can't be right. The census shows more Pakistanis for sure.

But in the UK, the Chinese migrant population is not big enough (yet) for that to occur.
    In the US, this change occurred decades ago in California where SF & LA's Chinatowns are a relic of the past and the Chinese communities have dispersed into the suburbs where quality of life is generally better.

    It's not surprising to me why HK people are leaving in droves - it's all about the search for the better life.

    Generally, if things are fine at home, no one emigrates. But obvious factors such as famine, security, economic collapse, religious or political repression will drive folks to seek better alternatives to 'home'.

    Would you risk your life in the wheel well of an airplane, or on a flimsy raft on the wide ocean? Happens every day coz of the causes listed above. If your future, as far as you can see, looks entirely grim and ugly, would not you take a chance for betterment?

    If HK folks could have some voice in their future, some place at the table besides being 'slaves to beijing' many fewer would emigrate.
