  1. Really, telegraph? Not even a link to the open letter?

    (Seriously, where can I find it? It is not [this one](https://www.hongkongwatch.org/all-posts/2019/8/2/open-letter-uk-politicians-and-lawyers-call-on-new-foreign-secretary-to-include-a-human-rights-clause-in-any-uk-hk-trade-agreement), is it?)

    Also, open letters are worthless. Talk is cheap and I don’t think a government which doesn’t listen to its own people cares about what people in other countries think. They should be boycotting academic events in China and HK instead.

  2. What is the the UK doing in all this anyway? I see a lot of calls for action from the US, but Hong Kong was a UK colony. Do they have any loyalty towards that or is it a reason for them to stay out of it?
