Hong Kong democracy: Beijing and London at loggerheads over UK residency offer

The Chinese embassy in London has hit back at the UK, calling its offer of safe haven to Hong Kong residents “irresponsible” and a “gross interference in China’s internal affairs.”

The spat follows Beijing’s approval of a new national security bill that cracks down on protest and dissent in the semi-autonomous territory.

Australia says it’s also considering an similar offer.
