    There goes HK's last value to multinationals, unimpeded access to information, even those that criticize the authorities.

    Being able to get news in HK about the mainland that wasn't heavily censored was a big benefit for China and international looking firms. That has pretty much disappeared and we have to get news on China from China. No one ever calls as asks what HK's newspapers take on a particular issue now as they are aligned.

    Closing HK off from the dangers of the outside world surely must happen. How can a movie about elections in a certain place be banned but you can read chat rooms and forums discussing the free and fair nature and the result. If it is dangerous information in one medium surely it is in all mediums.

    A internet firewall, proper one like the one in Mainland, has been one of my lines when I would consider leaving Hong Kong.

    If they applied the same firewall as China into HK, it will kill many businesses.

    It would mean more than just losing FB/Whatapp/google maps/ etc.

    Don't think they still care at this point, in their mind any foreigner or company that effs off can be replaced by a mainland one.

    Reading the article - this is more about people publishing or republishing / sharing "fake news" from HK about HK...

    Been proposed and discussed a fair bit over the last year or so.
