On Tuesday of last week I received an invitation to have tea with the Deputy Director of the Liaison Office (where the representatives of the Mainland Chinese Government are based). So on Friday afternoon I went along, fantastic views from the 38th floor. Very wide ranging conversation initially about out mutual research interests. But quite quickly into the state of Hong Kong, The University, The University’s President, and almost inevitably what I thought of the National Security Law. But all done very politely.
