Chinese Premier’s Visit to London
Li Keqiang has met the Queen and David Cameron, who has announced trade deals worth £14 bn. Despite the lack of media coverage, there have been protests. I had to go to the Voice of Russia UK website to find an interview with Alistair Currie, spokesman for the campaigning organisation Free Tibet. Mr. Currie said
"The British government has abased itself in order to try and curry favour with China. It’s one thing to say we need to do trade, it’s another to bend over backwards. The government pays lip-service to human rights in order to grease the wheels of its business dealings."

Also Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said that the Chinese people were “still politically shackled to a doctrine which is a one party state, communist doctrine which is the antithesis of the kind of open, democratic society that I believe in.” There’s more on www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-27865855
