Chinese visit: what's the plan?
Probably by the time you read this the President of the People's Republic of China will have arrived in London so that he can sit and watch as the British government does its kow-tow routine. Do you remember the last visit six years ago? How little Tony (who does seem to just love sucking up to raw power) told the police to arrest demonstrators, confiscate their flags and drive their vans in front of protestors so that the Chinese leader would not see them and so that little Tony would not lose face? You do remember all that? Not going to let it happen a second time, are you? I thought not!
Now, little Tony has said that protestors will be free to protest. Yes, well, he also let people believe that the Iraqis had long-range missiles as well, but let's pretend to believe him. It may be that he is now so weak that he cannot stomach yet another row in the House of Commons. A more likely explanation is that the Chinese leader will be whisked carefully from place to place to avoid the protests.
Whatever the truth, let's get every bugger out waving anti-Blair posters and anti-PRC flags. Some addresses for you:

Let's get the bugger out!
