    Our late former Leader Paddy Ashdown argued at the time of the Hong Kong handover that without the added right to live in the UK for those holding British National Overseas (BNO) Passports, Beijing could ignore the Joint Declaration.

    We have a duty to act and protect those we vowed we would.

    In 2020, this is becoming a tragic reality. 'Beijing's new law will trample over the 'one country, two systems' framework, crushing Hong Kong's autonomy.

    When I was growing up there was a catchphrase often bandied about (with a suitable rustic accent) - "The answer lies in the soil." There have always been some who understood the importance of soil; but it has now become an imperative, as we are told that if we continue as we are then we have around 60 years worth of harvests left to us.

    Millions of people are worried for their loved ones. They have made heartbreaking sacrifices every day since lockdown, including missing family gatherings like weddings and funerals.

    People are rightly angry about Dominic Cummings' behaviour. It cannot be one rule for senior government officials and one rule for everyone else

    We cannot allow coronavirus to blind us to the injustice that is unfolding on Hong Kong.

    Beijing's new national security law is a naked power-grab. It bypasses Hong Kong local law-making processes and demonstrates a complete lack of respect for the Joint Declaration. Clearly China no longer cares for the 'one country, two systems' agreement made between the UK and China during the Handover.

    I would like to send warm wishes to Muslims in the UK and around the world celebrating Eid al-Fitr.

    Eid marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan - a month of prayer, personal reflection, and self-denial.

    I'm sure that this Ramadan must have felt unusual and I know that observing a socially distanced Eid will not be easy either.

    Gray and Green Turtle Swimming on Water

    We do not come across many wild turtles in the United Kingdom, but nevertheless it is important to think about them on their international day. They are the longest living species on the planet and nobody knows quite how long they can live - the oldest living land animal in the world is believed to be Jonathan the giant tortoise, who was apparently born in 1832. Before Jonathan achieved this distinction, another giant tortoise called Adwaita was believed to be about 260 years old at the time of his death.

    It has been confirmed that Beijing is introducing a resolution that would bypass Hong Kong local law-making processes in order to impose a new 'national security law' on the territory.

    We cannot sit back and watch this violation of rights and freedoms.

    It is clear that China no longer cares for the 'one country, two systems' agreement made between the UK and China during the Handover.
