Following one of the most tumultuous fortnights in British political history, Britain’s Brexit future may not yet be clear. While there are several possible outcomes, the only thing for sure is that Britain’s political geography and unwritten constitution are never going to be the same again.
Mark O’Neill tells the remarkable story of the considerable contribution of Indians, Pakistanis and others from the Sub-continent to the building of Hong Kong.

The talk is richly illustrated with photographs of the different communities and their shops, businesses and cuisine.
