Hong Kong’s last British governor, Chris Patten was interviewed by ABC on Nov. 6, 2019 in Australia.
When pressed on the intense of Hong Kong protests, especially a “black hand” accused by the CCP, he said “the idea the kids who were born, in many cases, way after I left Hong Kong, are being manipulated by a 75-year-old former diplomat, is so preposterous that nobody of any intelligence should give it any credence, let alone write it.”
On Aug. 20, 2019, the broadcaster CCTV, a mouthpiece for the Communist China, declared openly that the Sino-British Joint Declaration has been “invalid and expired”, but the CCP promised in 1997 that the democracy, rights and freedoms in Hong Kong would remain unchanged. Lord Patten said: “they broke the promises they made on developing democracy in Hong Kong…that was a terrible error.“
