    There are still 5 British judges in Hong Kong after these 2 have gone.

    Very pleased they are gone. They were useless anyway.

    Word is they will resign soon.

    Can you elaborate why?

    Overseas Judges can not review NSL issues and they are apolitical. I think it would be good for other common law jurisdictions that have an effective rule of law in practice should have similar schemes to ensure best practices are observed and bias and politicization of the judiciary is less likely.

    Again why are you pleased they are gone?

    Only UK Government employees have resigned from the HK Government.
