UK Elite Goes Begging To China

Image: graphic very kindly created by @anonriddler

Early next week an airliner will be departing the shores of England packed with a high profile trade delegation, a key component of British Prime Minister, David Cameron’s trip to China. The objective is to secure further deals with China’s regime and seek Chinese investment within the UK economy, which is becoming, like that of the United States, increasingly dependent upon China’s economy. Apart from various financial incentives and a green light on moving into areas such as nuclear, oil and gas, mobile communications and info-tech research the Chinese are being served a generous portion of appeasement on human rights and  the issue of occupied lands such as Tibet and East Turkestan.

Not that Cameron will give a damn about such issues, he will be far too busy working for the benefit of (cough) ‘British interests’ which shall be represented by the reported presence of  Ralf Speth, chief executive of Jaguar Land Rover, Premier League Chief Executive Richard Scudamore, McLaren sports car boss Ron Dennis, Royal Dutch Shell Chairman Jorma Ollila, London Stock Exchange Chief Executive Xavier Rolet, TalkTalk’s Dido Harding, Standard Chartered’s Peter Sands and GlaxoSmithKline’s Chief Executive Andrew Witty.
