UK university is in the spotlight after suggesting an Iranian student fly home to Iran to collect thousands of pounds in cash and carry it back to the UK to pay for his fees. As Iran is under US sanctions, money transfers out of the country are all but impossible. The story highlights how all of us can be caught up in political decisions that seem very far removed from us. Hong Kong families in particular may wonder what fallout there could be in the coming years as China increases its presence on the global stage and others potentially resist.
