Sir Percy Cradock: Diplomat who played a crucial role in negotiating the handover of Hong Kong to China
Friday 19 February 2010

At the time, given China's overwhelming military advantage, Hong Kong's dependence on China for food and water, and Britain's lack of leverage in the negotiations, it was regarded as a diplomatic triumph for Margaret Thatcher. Cradock had managed to persuade the Chinese leadership to guarantee the British colony's capitalist economy, Western legal system and separate political structure for 50 years. But in Cradock's opinion his work was nearly undone with the appointment of Chris Patten, whom Cradock regarded as merely a self-seeking politician, as the final Governor of Hong Kong.
