This week, former governor Chris Patten in his only television interview during his current visit to Hong Kong, spoke to The Pulse. Among other things, he’s here to open an exhibition at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum called “Mapping Ming China’s Maritime World – The Selden Map and Other Treasures from the University of Oxford”. He also gave his views on the progress of "One Country Two Systems". On 6th March, a district council meeting ended in a wave of arguments as Central and Western district councillor Ted Hui was carried out of a meeting by police. He had invited reporters and an assistant to film. Chairman Lee Chi-hang told reporters, whose details he had already demanded, that this was a closed door meeting.The reporters were asked to leave after most voted against their stay. The district council’s standing orders do not contain guidelines on whether such meetings should be open to the public. Even if they involve allocation of public money.
