If you haven't followed the HK protests at all this may not make a lot of sense. Mr. Hunt = UK Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt.
UK have been making all sorts of dumb claims like that they have an obligation to HK people to help them have democracy etc. In fact HK still suffers a lot from the colonial past, 4 families rule that region going back to when the Brits had it. It's a mess that China still has to clean up.
