If I bought an iPhone 4 in Hong Kong/Singapore/Australia, on PAYG, would it work in the UK ?

it will probably be a fake

Most likely, the phone will not work (locked) and as wickedteen said, it could be a fake. But if you are buying in-person and the phone is not a fake, insert a UK Sim into the phone. If you get service, you are golden - the phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you can buy the phone and then unlock it via some software -- http://blog.iphone-dev.org/ -- they should release the iOS4 version soon.

No - it will just claim benefits and send the money to it's family back home.
