'Scots and Independent' Banned In China!

WTF?

Perhaps the pen is mightier than the sword. Still, it makes you realise how fortunate we are...

I guess so. Given that I'm very often critical of the US and British governments in what I write both here and elsewhere, and to my knowledge have never written a single syllable in criticism of the Chinese authorities, it is a bit surprising.

Is it down to a blanket ban on letting people in China read about how politics is conducted elsewhere, or a simple fear of the power of ideas? Either way, I guess if I lived in China as things stand, my life, assuming I still had it, would be less than easy...

Oh, sit back and enjoy while Labour steer straight into the iceberg!
