Q: If it kicks off.... take your kids and leave your partner behind?

What a decision to make. And being a follower of politics, it is something I have been thinking about.

 

Would I evacuate China, with my daughter, but leave my wife and family  behind?

 

Nope.

 

I wonder if the UK would allow my Chinese wife to evacuate to the UK. They have no Choice about me and our daughter... she has that special stamp in her passport. They cant deny our daughter access.

 

I could maybe do the passport waving stuff at the airport.... I am a Brit... this is my wife and daughter... get us out. My daughter is a Brit. It would probably work.

 

But no way could I take the whole family.

 

If it kicks off, who will you have to leave behind?

The real question is the logistics and cash flow considerations involved in fleeing during a period of mass public panic. Especially in China. It would make the Spring Festival travel period seem easy.

Doesn't your wife have a current U.K. tourist visa? Mine does (the new 2-year one) & when it expires we'll immediately get her a new one. Okay there could be issues staying long term but it's an intoal escape route.

Thats a hard one.
I guess it has a lot to do with the number of people and where you are.
A sea evacuation isn't really a option for me due to proximity to a likely hostile area .
And the airports are domestic or travel to areas that would be going from the pan to the fire.
Remember that book "the pied piper " set in ww2 in Holland and France ?
Might resemble my way out

Take both, wife and child, mother and child. Hopefully you don´t have to go through these ordeal. Is it how it feels like already, like everything on the verge of the war? I mean, I don't want to sound like "dude, on what world do you live?". I know the threats, the TRUMPets of war, and the ongoing belligerent propaganda. Yet, is it so vivid the threat over there that you feel like soon to run away,  flee away from China? 

Let's hope for the best and that you can bring your whole family back to UK. Better, that you don't have to do so. 

 

BTW. What do Chinese people feel and think about these events?

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
