I do think we should welcome him, but the one thing that should not be done is to remove from his sight all those wishing to protest his visit. A sanitised vist to our country is not democratic and makes a mockery of everything which was supposed to be different between the two nations.

I was amazed and disgusted at what I saw on the news last night. Apparently it dosen't matter if you have committed atrocities as long as you have a strong economy and good business links.

Sucking up to dictators. Thats what this is. Abandoning the US alliance in favour of emerging economies to secure our place at the bargaining table in the new world order. Makes me angry. We have no business making deals with China.

And the US themselves aren't busily steaming in with as many business deals in China as they can themselves? :ilol:

US business is. The US government certainly isn't.

No, that's why Condoleeza and all the rest have been over there repeatedly to smooth over the business deals. :lol:

US government and US business are so in bed with each other when it comes to China, don't be fooled by the occasional bit of sabre rattling.

Why on earth should our government be in the least bit concerned about other governments atrocities, after the way they themselves have behaved? :isad:


You really don't have the feintest clue about China do you?

Care to elaborate?






ps: Homeland Security, what a joke. Call it homeland security and people won't be as scared when you take away all their rights.

As an overture to last week's State Visit by China's President Hu Jintao, The Spectator published a chilling article by the China expert Jonathan Mirsky headed "A gangster comes to town". Mr Mirsky contrasted the deferential welcome to London planned for the President by Tony Blair with China's record as one of the world's most ruthless dictatorships.

Among its crimes he cited the regime's murderous treatment of Tibetans, Christians, Muslims, dissidents and strikers. China's "extra-judicial execution" of more than 3,000 people a year - which far outstrips the whole world's total of official death penalties - includes use of mobile execution vans.

The one glaring omission from Mr Mirsky's otherwise admirable piece was any reference to the document ceremonially signed in Beijing last September by Mr Blair, in his capacity as President of the EU. Not only did our Prime Minister formally commit the EU (and Britain) to become politically, economically and militarily "a strategic partner" of China, supporting the "one China" policy whereby Beijing lays claim to Taiwan; he was also happy to sign a statement that the EU and China are jointly committed to the "protection and promotion of human rights".

Recalling those killing vans, is there anything our play-actor Prime Minister won't put his name to

Well there's nothing new to me there at all. Where does it say anything about selling military secrets?

ps: being a "strategic partner" isn't the answer to the above question. :Smile3:
