Remake Hong Kong in the UK
This Hong Kong 2.0 would start as an empty bit of land somewhere on the coast, so that anybody who moved there would be opting in to the laws that govern it. Those laws could continue on the things that have made Hong Kong great: the property rights, low regulation, openness to trade and British legal system that have put Hong Kong at the top of the Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World rankings for years.
Anybody from the UK or Hong Kong could move there, if they wanted to be part of this new city. Like the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, it could be set up as a Crown Dependency that, although technically under British control, was de facto a self-governing unit.
For Hong Kongers, this would be a chance to escape the Chinese regime, which is showing less and less respect for the rule of law in Hong Kong and for the Sino–British Joint Declaration in which it agreed to preserve ‘one country, two systems’ until 2047.
From this article, by Sam Bowman. When was the last time you were this excited by a political proposal?
Others have suggested doing something similar in the US and Australia. We should do all three. But the British Constitution is incredibly well suited to this sort of arrangement. God bless the Westminster system and uncodified constitutions.
