    At what point does the outrageous become common place, that's what I am worried about.

    If he decides to leave HK, will he be prevented from doing so in order to ensure he doesn't commit Nat Sec offences from abroad?

    I was there in MK when the cops came and approached the lady and the man with the huge yellow umbrella up.... massive road blockage causing annoyance to those mini skirted girls and squid game consume wearers on scooters roaming the roads

    It's been a steady, resolute descent indeed.
