Always Doing It Wrong

I know nothing about the complex Hong Kong-China situation, but I do know that people who are advocating for silly things like "democracy" and "human rights" are always doing it wrong.
The last British governor of Hong Kong has criticised the “antics” of two recently disqualified pro-independence politicians, saying their position dilutes the fight for greater democracy in the city.

Chris Patten, now a member of the House of Lords and chancellor of the University of Oxford, said it was “dishonest, dishonourable and reckless” to conflate the push for greater democracy in Hong Kong with the argument for independence. least he didn't use the word "childish." That's usually the go to one.
