There is ample evidence that the Chinese Government in Peking as well as their Liaison Office in Hong Kong have broken their promise of Hong Kong's autonomy in all of its internal affairs, as enshrined in the Sino-British Joint Declaration and embodied in Article 22 of the Basic Law. Local papers have reported that the Chinese Liaison Office in Hong Kong has been lobbying the electors in the 2012 Hong Kong Chief Executive Election, as well as putting pressure on the local media. Hence, China has in effect broken the Basic Law and torn up the Joint Declaration. All that is needed are the official declarations by Peking, London, Hong Kong, or the United Nations.
The British Government has been looking the other way all along. They told the Parliament in February 2012 that the "One Country, Two Systems' principle [had] worked well and that the rights and freedoms guaranteed in the Joint Declaration [continued] to be respected." That is self-deceiving and irresponsible, leaving three million British Nationals in Hong Kong to their own devices.
The Chinese Liaison Office's illegal meddling in this local election has thrown Hong Kong into political chaos, which is exactly what the "One-Country-Two-Systems" is supposed to prevent, and, more significantly, proved that the People's Republic of China has been violating the Sino-British Joint Declaration, which can now be seen as null and void. International conventions oblige the United Kingdom, as a signatory to the Joint Declaration, to step in and help resolve the crisis.

‎[譴責英國政府未有履行締約國責任}
是次香港行政長官選舉,越來越多證據顯示中聯辦以至北京政府並無遵守《中英聯合聲明》中不干預香港特區內部事務之協定(已有報章證實中聯辦致電不滿報章報導手法)。既然能夠證明中聯辦的行動違反基本法,亦同時證明中共已作出超越聯合聲明寫明的管轄範圍,便可以正式宣佈「中華人民共和國沒有履行《中英聯合聲明》而失效」。目前只欠中、英、港三方政府的正式宣稱,或是聯合國的公佈。
作為締約國之一的英國政府,現時仍然對北京政府在港的干預畏首畏尾。在二月初提交英國國會的香港半年報告書竟稱一國兩制原則於報告期間在香港運作良好,而聯合聲明所承諾的權利及自由也得到尊重。此舉無異妄顧現實,自欺欺人。現時本港仍有數百萬合資格的BN(O)持有者,英國政府斷無道理棄之不顧。
基於中聯辦干擾選舉,違反基本法22條及《中英聯合聲明》訂好的「除了國防和外交就是歸香港特區內部事務」, 不單令是次選舉及香港政局陷入混亂,更證明中華人民共和國沒有遵行聯合聲明,而可認定為已經失效。因此,英國作為《聯合聲明》另一方締約國,必須根據國際慣例介入,解決《中英聯合聲明》失效之事。
