The Chinese government has continued to reiterate outright the document no longer carried any significance.”The time to say something was at latest about six years ago,” said Alvin Cheung, a legal scholar at New York University’s US Asia Law Institute.”It’s a pretty grim indictment of the international community that all the warning signs have been around for this long and they have been consistently swept under the carpet until the very end.”A pro China activist holds an effigy of US President Donald Trump during a protest outside the US consulate in Hong Kong ISAAC LAWRENCE/AFPAside from pressing economic sanctions, what’s left now in the UK’s response toolbox are largely symbolic gestures.The UK could, for instance, raise discussion at the United Nations about China breaching the Joint Declaration.”If anybody can just sign a contract, an agreement housed at the UN with Britain, and 20 years later turn around and say, ‘we are not doing that,’ how can Britain stand with two legs firm in the world anymore?,” said Jessica Yeung, a university professor who has participated in pro democracy protests in Hong Kong.But “it may be a lost cause, as [Chinese leader] Xi Jinping will do whatever he wants, and no country can stop him, as the idea of an international humanitarian intervention against the will of a major nuclear weapons state with a veto at the United Nations Security Council is fanciful,” said Steve Tsang, director of the SOAS China Institute at the University of London.Still, “this does not mean the UK doesn’t have a role to play,” he said.
