    I beg to differ....

    I go to China a lot; it is not a third world country.

    Have you ever been to a third world country?

    Re: British man said to be mentally ill executed in China

    The position of the UK government is very clear. A statement has been made by the UK government that even though it disgrees with China and the USA about the deathj penalty, this case had special circumstances because, despite twenty seven representations by Britain, including one at Prime Ministerial level, this Briton had been denied a medical assesmment as part of the judicial process. This is unacceptable, siad the minister.

    He is absolutely 100% right. China has failed in its basic duty of human rights towards a British citizen. It is a disgrace. Those who do not see it like that are undermining the principles of universal human rights. Pure and simple.

    This man would not have been put to death even by Dubya!

    He has not got the mental ability to recognise right from wrong.
    Wrong there with regards to Dubya who as Governor of Texas sanctioned the execution of a man who was mentally ill.

    We only have the word of the family to suggest that this guy suffered Bi-polar disorder and even if he did, what of it?

    4 Kg of Heroin can cause an awful lot of damage.

    Anyone found to be smuggling Illegal drugs should be executed.

    You apparently do trust them to hold your Country's debt.

    Considering their manipulation of the currency market by subsidizing the purchase of our debt in our money, no I do not trust them in the least.

    Clearly your monosylabic response and the alteration of what I said (in quotes) means that you are not interested in serious discussion.

    Probably a wise decision on your part.
