Who set up the present system?

CAN someone please confirm if Hong Kong has been under British rule for 150 years? Can someone also please confirm if both Douglas Hurd and Chris Patten are indeed from Britain? Douglas Hurd, in the article that he wrote for the South China Morning Post, which appeared on December 9, states that Britain wants to ''leave Hong Kong with an open and democratic system . . . '' and will not ''settle for a system based on small electorates open to manipulation and corruption''.


Who established the present system? Chris Patten puts forward his proposal so that the election to the Legislative Council will be ''open, fair and acceptable to the people of Hong Kong''. Who established the present election system? So now Douglas Hurd and Chris Patten want to rid Hong Kong of a system open to corruption and have in place an open and fair system.


Thank you both very much! H. K. CHAN Hunghom
