Makes me so angry.
The Chinese have spent the last 58 years trying to erradicate the entire Tibetan culture, destroying temples, forcible relocation of Tibetansand filling the country with mainly Han chinese. Can you imagine how oppresive your dictatorship would have to be to get Buddist monks to riot in the streets?
Thank you Gordon Brown for allying us with this scum. Im starting to feel sick

Cynical people will say this is because we need China's help (it is quite well off apparently) ie with oil and trade to get through the the current global financial crisis. This and Saudi Arabia's help. Thats why Cylops McCyclops was out in sunnier climes recently.

Doesnt offend me in the slightest. Parents murdering kids, chavscum beating up defenceless pensioners, left wing dogooders who dont support people wearing a uniform and willing to sacrifice their lives for said dogooders right to whinge, bumbandits, kiddiefiddlers (still mentally scarred), money grabbing fat tw4ts who take and dont give ie banks and a whole host of other things in equal measure offend me.
Doesnt shame me either. Politicians unwilling to act over child abuse cases shames me. Being caught in a rather compromising position with a rather well endowed bullock shames me.

The Communists spent the Cultural Revolution trying to eradicate the traditional cultures of all China's ethnic groups, their main effort being directed at the Han. That's not the same thing at all as targetting the Tibetan culture in the specific way you're trying to make out. An interesting critique of the almost uncontested 'Government in Exile'-approved version of events is HERE.

Nowadays, a majority of Chinese view Tibetans as being rather pampered: Tibet gets a massive amount of investment in grants and infrastructure; Tibetans get larger quotas for students at the best universities; they have lower Gao Kao scores to get in; One-Child doesn't apply to them; state pensions are higher for households registered in Tibet; and they can move far more easily between Tibet and Tibetan Autonymous Regions in the surrounding Provinces than a Han can move within their own Province.

Regardless of the rights and wrongs of the PRCs claim to rule Tibet (and I pointed out a few glaring flaws in these very pages pre-Olympics), it actually does a damned good job of maintaining minority ethnic cultures - far better than most Western cultures do for theirs. How many government departments exist for the sole purpose of keeping the Cornish language alive and vibrant?

Smartascarrots. I completely agree with you. But, perhaps, because I believe that Mrs Smartas and Mrs Rockpile hail from the same part of the glbe, we are better informed. Also, UK has a tradition of recognising what is fact rather than what we may like it to be. Finally, there are plenty of places closer to home where an area feels it should have independence but we ( the UK) don't concern ourselves with them.

The Taiwanese can be mentalists, themselves. The KMT refused to recognise the independance of Mongolia because in their view the Communists were not the legitimate government of China and therefore in no place to sign any treaties granting it independence. I doubt very much that they'll will be losing any sleep over the UK restating its official position of decades and with Chen doing a Bobby Sands the DPP are pretty much leaderless - not that they'd have any philosophical objections either.

China: Huge country. In fact fcuk off big country. Vast economy although getting a bit rocky. Huge standing armed forces. Lots of geopolitical reasons to keep 'em happy or at least not p!ss them off.

Tibet: Mountains. Otherwise SFA apart from tourism, subsistence agriculture & blokes in robes.

Not difficult, is it?

This is the same government that tried to surrender British sovereignty of Gibraltar to Spain and wants to give up British sovereignty to the EU without a referendum, why on earth would you imagine they would give flying fcuk about Tibetan sovereignty?

I'm reminded of a tale told me by an academic colleague of his attending a symposium in New York. At the dinner night he found himself seated at a table with an elderly chap from a university in Beijing and another bloke who turned out to be the brother of the current Dalai Lama (BODL). BODL made some fatuous remark about 'liberating the Tibetan people' and promptly got torn a new arrse.

It turns out the old bloke (OB) was a native Tibetan born in the 30s when the country was ruled by the monks and nobles. He together with his mum and all her other kids had been given as a gift from one noble to another when he was young and none of them ever saw his father again. The climax of the rather one-sided debate was OB yelling at BODL not to dare telling him that under the old system he (OB) would ever have been anything other than a slave, let alone got to share the dinner table with the brother of the Dalai Lama.

Take the PRC government position with a pinch of salt. Do the same with the pro-Tibet camp, there's a massive heap of ulterior motives behind their propaganda too.

Thought you-know-who had already been to Saudi to do precisely that recently.
I think The Special One was there to tell those backward Arabs about the evils of fossil fuels. He imagined that, with a few words from him, they'd stop pumping oil and sow the desert with wind farms.

What a tw@t. He do as well trying to sell air conditioning to satan.

Kow towing to the Chinese might pay dividends though. We could have a police exchange. We could send them Blackpool's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Policing Team and the Chinese could send us as many as they liked from Tianamen Square division.

Knife crime would plummet as an endless stream of hoodies arrived at A&E with knives inserted into every orifice.

'You want rice with that', would take on a whole new meaning as binge drinkers were made to eat their own vomit off the pavement.

'Eco warriors' making a nuisance of themselves? Bring on the tanks.

Pete Doherty caught with a splif? Harvest his organs.

Wonder why this decision wasn't put out a bit more loudly then?

LMF of the part of the Foreign Sec and the others who signed off on this act of abetting murder and cultural vandalism.

But then shame was something stripped from them long ago.
