本來預期 Hong Kong Watch 喺1月17日，至會公布對 BNO 平權嘅意見，只不過， Lord Ashdown提早喺1月15日公布佢嘅2017年11月香港行報告，雖然 Lord Ashdown係戴晒頭盔，但基本上，已經展開咗 BNO 平權之路。基本上， Hong Kong Watch 描劃咗 BNO 平權嘅具體時間表。
但基本上， BNO 平權條件已經好清晰列咗出嚟，唔係含糊其辭。
Continue to monitor the situation of human rights in Hong Kong, upholding the Sino-Britsh Joint Declaration and ‘one-country, two-systems’, taking meaningful action when human rights in Hong Kong have been breached;
• Consider reviewing the status of BNO holders, and taking steps to protect BNO passport holders if the human rights situation in Hong Kong significantly worsens.
所以呢份報告，係衝住 BNO 平權而嚟，而成個 BNO 平權條件，係同中國走數有關，而有兩個炸彈測試，是但中一個，都會啟動平權
The decision of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC) to push through the law, despite objections from Hong Kong lawyers that such a move is unconstitutional as it breaches Article 18 of the Basic Law, sets a dangerous precedent. If the Basic Law can be ignored at the whim of the National People’s Congress, there are dangers that the constitution on will be cast aside next time a controversial and unconstitutional measure needs to be pushed through.
The enactment of Article 23 has the potential to lead to violations of freedom of expression. Its prohibition of ‘foreign political organisations or bodies from conducting political activities in the region’ is vague and could inhibit constructive dialogue between Hong Kong’s active political class and their contemporaries further afield. Its prohibition on ‘political organisations or bodies of the Region from establishing ties with foreign political organisations or bodies’ is also arbitrary and unnecessary.
I don’t say we should do it now, but if it is the case that those who have BNO passports feel so vulnerable that they can’t live there any longer, and that is proven to be a case, then I think Britain should certainly be prepared to show generosity in that ma er. However, clearly such a policy may not prevail in Britain’s current political climate where immigration is not favoured.
無錯，最後果句係頭盔嚟，但前面兩個條件好清晰，兼且唔會停掣。而且Lord Ashdown訪港果陣人大常委未就一地兩檢釋法，但2017年12月27日釋咗法，其實有人已經㩒咗掣，而 Hong Kong Watch 呢個英國朝野三黨共同有代表嘅組織，就就㩒掣條件講清楚，為 BNO 實質平權展開序幕。所以 Executive Summary寫法係好唔同
Consider reviewing the status of BNO holders, and taking steps to protect BNO passport holders if the human rights situation in Hong Kong significantly worsens.
所以 BNO 平權係唔係發白日夢？仲講白日夢果啲，明顯係幫中國講嘢，呢啲人渣大家識點對待佢地。
