‘China is a threat to democracy’: former Hong Kong Governor

Posted by Author on November 24, 2008

By Vaudine England, BBC News, Hong Kong, Sunday, 23 November 2008-

The threat looming from China is not to do with cheap exports but the “dooming of democracy”, former Hong Kong Governor Chris Patten has told the BBC.

Lord Patten said China promoted the idea that one could get rich without needing democracy – and such an idea posed a threat to the West.

He said regional bodies such as Asean should be strengthened so they could do more to tackle regional problems.

Lord Patten was mobbed by fans while in Hong Kong to promote his latest book.

The book, What’s Next? Surviving the Twenty-first Century, tries to assess where the challenges of the future will come from.

It discusses climate change, trafficking of people, guns and drugs and other aspects of the “dark side of globalisation”.

Most provocative in Asia will be his views on Burma, China and democracy, some of which have sparked anger among Asian governments in the past.

Despite interest in his book, the territory’s former governor remains a divisive figure…….. (more details from BBC News)
