    Whatever BJ offers will not apply to the Republic of Ireland.

    Apart from the Immigrant Investor Program, what other avenues will be open in the Republic of Ireland?

    If HKers do their 5+1 years in the UK and obtain British Citizenship, they will then be free to move to Ireland to live, work or study due to the Common Travel Area.

    The CTA predates the EU by a long time, the UK and Ireland have signed an MoU to strongly state the CTA wil remain unchanged...

    Let's hope the Republic of Ireland welcomes new immigrants.

    Many local Hong Konger's haven't really experienced racism and it'll be an experience they will not forget.

    Meanwhile across the border in Northern Ireland, thing's aren't much better...

    Hong Kongers are very well versed in racism based on skin color. I'm sure they'll integrate just fine.

    Very strange headline... "Chu, a Green Party councillor since 2019, is the first ethnic Chinese mayor of a major European capital city"

    Has there been an ethnic Chinese mayor of minor European capital cities before?!

    Hongkongers suffer racism from their government all the time.

    Does a European colonial city count? If so then Melbourne would have had their first ethnically Chinese Mayor in the late 70’s not long after the white Australia policy was abolished by the Whitlam govt, had David Wang, not died of a heart attack before he was officially sworn in.

    Fast forward 25years and then we had the very popular (Hong Konger ) John So, who was the first directly elected Mayor via the people not the councillors. 2001 -2004.
