    looks like HK will be overrun with more mainlanders to compensate the loss of people

    Maybe. But I think that suggests we don't know we're "being cooked" - I think most of us do. So I this instance, I like Shri's more - we know something big is here and it could be very bad news and when the real impact comes, it might come very sudden, before we have a chance to react.

    Or maybe I'm just full of shit.

    The pandemic is not a primary reason for me to want to leave, although the way the government has used it as an excuse to trample on basic rights is a clear red flag. Feeling like I'm stuck in Hong Kong because I'm not willing to take the time, expense and risk of the entry and quarantine system has definitely made me want to go anywhere and there is almost certainly bleed-though to wanting to leave for good.

    To put it another way, if I'd been able to travel for leisure and/or to see my family this year, I probably wouldn't feel quite so strongly about HK no longer being a place I can happily live long-term.

    Re-opening the border to the mainland requires a 0-case policy. This means closing the borders even further to the rest of the world (i.e. matching China's border restrictions).

    That's not a choice that many will want in Hong Kong.

    HK has more restrictive border restrictions than China. China doesn't have a tiered system of countries, they don't have 21 days hotel quarantine and they don't ban their own citizens from returning either.

    What is this CAN'T you keep banging on about - It's absolutely a political choice, nothing more.
