(1) Welcome to the WTF Hong Kong protesters BNO series:

A HK man is now furious about his BNO experience "at the hands of UK immigration" when he tried to enter the UK with his BNO passport with 11 other family members recently & called UK immigration officers "black cops" - he
(2) said they & 2 dozen other HK people were annoyed cos the wait at the immigration counters at Heathrow Airport was long ("the Brits are known to be low in efficieny", he quipped) - while waiting, his wife tried to call relatives in HK with her mobile & he took a few photos
(3) (which was NOT allowed) - he said he tried to "protect his wife" by standing in front of her when British security & immigration officers suddenly grabbed her mobile - he was disappointed that the others didn't help him cos his English wasn't good enough to argue with them
(4) he & his wife were taken to a small detention room with other people trying to enter the UK with "not enough social distancing" & to his horror, the British immigration officer who handled them had a Chinese face (!) (a Brit of Chinese descent) - he wondered how come a
(5) "Chinese looking black cop" would be allowed to enforce the law here - they were later taken to a much large detention room with their whole family incl their kids, & to his horror the room was full of (in his words) "South Asian & black people".... he tried to explain that
(6) & his family were "political refugees" from HK & not poor refugees like these in the room, demanded to go to a hotel but were forced to stay one night in this room. A news article on this story explains that he & his family were kicked out of the UK

(7) the following day on the next flight back to HK, with a stamp on their BNO passport stating that they will be forbidden to enter the UK in the next two years..... this HK guy says after this experience, he fears that he & his family might be persued by a "certain law
(8) enforcement agency.... & wants the whole world to know what happened to them & to be careful of that "Chinese looking British immigration officer with a bad attitude"..... however, he still believes that the UK is a "free, democratic" country & his plight was a result of
(9) persecution by "a few nasty law enforcement officers who tried to make things difficult for HK people".....
(10) In case people wonder if Ka Cheung in (1) above has made up a story, here is the account of the event of someone who witnessed the 12 HK BNO passport holders' saga at London Heathew Airport, posted by an immigration consultant

(11) this witness said that he was appalled by their ignorance & bad behaviour, & the immigration consultant who posted it mentions that the Chinese British officer Ka Cheung mentions was probably from the Home Office & not an "immigration officer"
(12) the events were also reported in this HK news article:

(1) a new topic on HK protesters' favourite LIHKG forum: "Do you feel that we were too impulsive in the summmer of 2019?" - former HK chief executive CY Leung quipped: "Others (eg Western regimes) offered only soy sauce but you offered the whole chicken!" (so true!) now that they ImageImageImage
(2) now that they start to reflect on the HK protests & riots, wonder if they realise that Western forces (politicians, media, agitators, regime change operatives) only had to lift a finger & write some crap to incite them & they did not hesitate to commit
(3) crimes & assault other citizens to destroy a city - & what do they get in return? Tweets declaring "support" for their cause & shitty BNO passports & British visas with strict conditions of stay & not much help from their ex colonial masters? Was that worth it? The only help

(1) HUGE NEWS! English summary of the Chinese news story in this video below:

(1) Flashback to 11/2019 Polytechic University siege in Hong Kong: the protester (a cook) who claimed that he planned to be the "last man standing" scolded former Democractic Party member Ted Hui (who has since escaped to the UK) for being useless & his party for "doing nothing"
(2) for decades (ie not radical enough) - let's see if this "last man standing" would take up the wonderful BNO offer to move to the UK (or maybe he would only accept a US offer) - at the end, the pro-protest reporter interviewed him, in which he called himself a "rioter" &
(3) asked if the reporter was also an "unscrupulous/ corrupt/ dirty reporter", the reporter said he was indeed & both were proud to make the declaration
