I’m beginning to wonder if one has to sign away his conscience before becoming a Labour Party Prime Minister. For I can’t see how anyone with a conscience can welcome the Olympic torch as Gordon Brown did while the host China stomps on the face of freedom in Tibet.
And freedom is getting trampled more than a little under Gulag UK, too. Apparently, wearing the wrong t-shirt is a thought crime against the state:
Yonten Ngama, a Tibet-born care home worker, was asked by police at Wembley to remove a T-shirt that declared: “China Stop the Killing.” Minutes before he was arrested, he said: “It is difficult to protest. China is powerful also in the UK.”
Indeed. Those who deny basic freedoms know no boundaries . . . and have no shame.
By the way, I must salute the protesters in London and Paris. They quite literally snuffed out efforts to ignore Tibet.
