    They are not forced at gunpoint but between starving and modern slavery, they choose the latter...
    This is exactly the point - fdh labour is pulling millions of families out of starvation poverty.

    Yes it would be wonderful if they could all have well paid jobs running pet hotels or training o.a.p.s to use word processors instead, but that isn't how the global economy works.

    Hong Kong is better in some ways

    safer to walk around even at night

    can phone and get a doctors appointment on the same day or next at the latest

    not so many people begging and sleeping in shop doorways

    Personally I feel HK is less bothered about appearance. It seems anything goes whereas UK can be quite fashion conscious.

    UK is a big place, are you comparing HK to London or to The middle of the Lake district/cotswolds?

    As regards food, I'd say London has more variety than HK.

    Convenience
    Weather

    Anything you guys disagree with or care to add?
    Just the post I was looking for. I've been debating with my inner expertise for the umpteenth time whether or not to leave HK for England (will be living in London).

    The OP is comparing only England and not the entire United Kingodm with HK. I think a lot of people use England and (the) UK interchangeably ignoring the fact that these words are two different lots and aren't synonymous.

    Quite often they think of London as being the UK . Even England is very varied so is the comparison for example between the Lake District and Hong Kong or London and Hong Kong?
