Where Red Reynolds gets her intel on ChinaPosted on October 10, 2010
Guido reports today the pro-Communism views of Emma Reynolds MP, the Shadow Junior Foreign Minister who last night told the Oxford Union that “China’s control and command approach is something to be admired”.
She has the good fortune to be in the comfortable position of admiring China’s approach to government from afar, from the safety of a democracy which still remains largely free (despite the best efforts of many of her colleagues). I find it impossible to understand how anyone who knows the first thing about the murder, torture and oppression which form essential foundations of China’s “control and command” approach could be anything but disgusted by it.
There’s no excuse for being uninformed on the topic – it’s common knowledge what depths of inhumanity the Chinese Communist Party has sunk to. Reynolds might be expected to know even more than most, seeing as she is the Treasurer of the All Party Parliamentary Group on China.
The APPG must discuss civil liberties, surely? Sadly, not according to a search of their website…
Oh dear. Well how about searching for “freedom”?
