Last quote by Chris Patten

It will surely have the opposite effect. The names of Joshua Wong, Alex Chow and Nathan Law will be remembered long after the names of those who have persecuted them have been forgotten and swept into the ashcan of history.feedback

Chris Patten has most recently been quoted in an article called Hong Kong is a 'test case' on whether China keeps its word: Final British governor. Chris Patten said, “I think that we could have started on the process of democratization earlier, back in the 1980s, when we said that one of the guarantees of how Hong Kong would continue to be free should be the development of democracy. The Chinese have spent a lot of time talking about 'one country, two systems,' without ever having made the effort to understand what it means. Hong Kong is still one of the freest cities in Asia, no question about it, and that's how people would like it to remain. I've never been against helping China to become a modern economy. What I'm not in favor of is kowtowing to China.”. Chris Patten has been quoted a grand total of 13 times in 6 articles.

Jun 28 2017 - Brexit

[Xi's] game plan is that abducting people on the streets in Hong Kong shouldn't be anything that causes any anxiety. I think the game plan would be that for people to call for greater democracy in Hong Kong or for greater respect for Hong Kong's autonomy is the sort of thing that would get them locked up.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Immigration

For the good of our universities, and of Britain’s soft power, the government must end this unfair categorisation. I have always preferred policy to be based on facts rather than prejudice. A good example of the latter is the way the immigration figures are presented. At the moment our policy is not, alas, founded on evidence. It hurts our higher education institutions, which are already faced with the challenges of our forthcoming divorce from the European mainstream.feedback
