More Panda Pandering Diplomacy
MP's pro-China blog appals Tibet's friends
Labour's Chinese MP, Raymond Huo, is facing fierce criticism for defending Chinese rule over Tibet on a Labour Party website. Criticising Green Party co-leader Russel Norman's Tibetan flag protest in front of visiting Chinese Vice-President Xi Jinping, Mr Huo wrote: "What Westerners do not know, or do not want to know ... is what level of cruelty the theocratic serfdom under the Dalai Lama had to offer."
What? National AND Labour have sold to China? First John Key is apologizing to the Chinese for assaulting Russel Norman, and now Raymond Huo is defending the invasion of Tibet because it's feudalism was intolerable??? Yeah, see I don't think pre-emptive war for One Party harmony is any more defensible than pre-emptive war for freedom and democracy.
China using human rights as their excuse to perpetrate human rights is almost American in its arrogance.
