    It has already been invaded, by China's People's Liberation Army which is permanently stationed there, by non-HK mainland Chinese pregnant women who stay, legally (a loophole intentionally left open by the HK gov't under orders from the communists) and illegally to give birth to children who instantly become HK residents, and by millions of Chinese "tourists" who overcrowd the city to a point that it has seriously affected people's daily lives.

    The HK gov't, apparently under orders and directions from the communists, is constantly fostering "Chinese national identity" and integration into their culture of rule of man and corruption. HK people do not identify with such national identity and culture. All of this, IMO, is a bloodless genocide.

    Frankly speaking, the Chinese Communist Party is really terrible, destroying every aspect of Hong Kong. Legal system, education system .... terrible ...

    What's often ignored here is that this should be a two way street. Overseas territories were treated abysmally under Thatcher's amendments to the Nationality Act, and yes they should have the right of abode in the UK, but give reciprocal rights to UK mainlanders.

    I know Brits who took ages and jumped through hoops to get permanent HK residency. Try obtaining the right to live on Pitcairn or Tristan da Cunha. Not easy. Pitcairn is virtually depopulated and is supposedly "encouraging" immigration which it will need to survive, but still pretty damn hard to settle there, even for a Brit.

    The OP's example of France is a good one. Yes if you're from Martinique or Guiane you're French and you don't get a useless second class passport. And when French mainlanders want to go out there, they go, and it's "internal" travel.

    Is Barack Obama still a British subject ?

    I know that the Kenyan government recognises Obama's Kenyan citizenship.

    Have no idea if Obama is still an Indonesian citizen ? But it could be why he canceled his trip to Indonesia, something to do with unpaid taxes.

    I don't think Emer de Vattel even thought of that and neither the authors of the Fourteenth Amendment but todays libs ignore the intent of the Fourteenth Amendment.

    That is an excellent question Shrub.
