China’s recent curtailing of individual freedom in Hong Kong and the UK’s decision to offer a new Hong Kong BN(O) Visa has once again highlighted the fundamental attraction of the UK as a safe and secure location.

China’s Great Firewall has become a thing of internet legend but is part of a  greater authoritarian drive. The country ranks third from the worst in the 2020 world press freedom index, and it was 126th out of 162 countries in 2019 on the Human Freedom Index, which takes into consideration movement, rule of law, and security.
