britain but since then the battle over hong kong's autonomy has developed into a war of words between china and the u.k. just listen to what china's ambassador to the u.k. new shell ming said in london on wednesday. i'm calling the british government to reflect the consequences of his words and deeds with regard to hong kong i do hope that his government would realize. the consequences and would refrain from further interference from furthering time eating in a relationship now this in response to a series of tweets and media statements over 3 days from u.k. foreign secretary jeremy hunt in support of the people of hong kong today he responded to those criticisms and issued clarifications i was not supporting the violence what i was saying is the way to deal with that violence is not by

repression it is by understanding the root causes of the concerns of the demonstrators that freedoms that they have had for their whole life could be about to be undermined by this new extradition all but earlier comments had come in for criticism from beijing as well this is what the foreign ministry said. i have responded to mr hans irani as remarks in hong kong for 2 straight days. expressing china's strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition i turned into a he however he seems to be indulging in the illusions of faded british colonialism and is obsessed with pointing fingers at other country's affairs in a condescending manner he he calls the one. strong words there but what do they all mean from all of this be joined by the the reporter clifford conan in the studio with me clifford welcome now you worked in beijing for
3:34 pm
a number of year as an intended very many such press conferences in the foreign ministry headquarters is this sort of language that be heard in this entire war of words unusual it's not unusual this is the classic rhetoric that one hears from from beijing at the focus is all. internal matter whether it comes to human rights the side china sea any of these international issues that china finds itself in the middle they always focus on internal affairs and how this is it's china's business and they urge other people to to say steer clear of that so i think it's very much it within the in the tone now beyond the internal affairs question ambassador lew in london that press conference that he held he also said that under british rule people in hong kong could not elect their own representatives or could not elect their own leaders it was britain that appointed governors people could not go out onto the streets to demonstrate and then they accused britain of being potentially hypocritical by talking about democracy in that a tree the chinese have
3:35 pm
a point there well the hypocrisy argument is always it's always a slightly difficult one obviously for the british because they run they ran the territory the crown colony as it was then using governors as they did elsewhere in the british empire and towards the end of the british rule in 1907 they did try to implement more democracy on reforms to make reference greater representation for the hong kong people and i think the british tend to point to that when when china makes these accusations i think myself that hypocrisy is probably a strong word given that britain i think was trying to move towards more representation but at the same time it's something that the chinese contrail this is something that has been that they have began begun playing on for quite some time but this war of words has really picked up steam from monday when the legislative council was breached by for testers i just like to talk about the timing of this war of words now does this in some way take away the focus from

what's actually happening on the streets of hong kong i think so i think the chinese government is in a real quandary here it's in a difficult position to know what to do about what's happening in hong kong. the chief executive is very much from the beijing side. at the same time she's also struggling a little bit with the initial protests which were very peaceful she was put into a difficult position now that there's violence in terms of the alleged attack it's become easier maybe for beijing to involve itself but at the same time it's much more comfortable in these areas dealing with other governments. be talking about things like internal matters and coming out with this kind of rhetoric that we discussed rather than dealing with the actual uneasy gritty of what's going on in hong kong at the moment you might be easier on the international stage but then we must all stroke about jeremy hunt himself he is in a sense for reelection if i can call it that we have to head the tory party and by extension become british prime minister is there potentially more to
3:37 pm
a bust of motivation here for jeremy hunt to bring this issue up in the middle of a tory party leadership campaign but i think that the timing is no coincidence i think in fairness that the british foreign minister has been very he's been pretty good on hong kong in terms of standing up for the british side. but at the same time i think he's there is definitely a political dimension to this if you can show leadership and if you can show strength in dealing with china i mean protecting the basic law that after all the tory party was instrumental in drafting with the chinese back in the in the run up to the back and i said before i think that i think it could certainly work for him in political terms david graham we just have to wait and see if that does happen thank you so much for coming in and breaking that down for us in or out of the streets of hong kong there's fear things could get worse that's in the words of pro-democracy lawmaker claudia moore this after police arrested more than

a kind of wall and community spirit on the protest one of the most peaceful could have remnants of the memorial corner for a number of demonstrators who killed themselves in desperation as a final sign of protest use that shook many hong kong residents. protests have subsided for now leaving many despondent several suicide threats online have alarmed firefighters and volunteers who have been out all day to prevent further attempts by a lot of people participating in political movement like most i i called the psychic encounter and you can read. some someone has been walking around the scene of monday's clashes police have sealed off the entrance to the legislative council several people have been arrested. i think it's ironic to. the creativity of the
