I've just flown from London and am now stuck in Doha while my connecting flight to Hong Kong is delayed. I've got about another 7 hours to wait, then a 9 hour flight. Then I've got to tackle typhoons, tropical storms and floods on my way through Guangdong. All I can think about is getting back as soon as possible and seeing her.



that would be sweet if i were someone else


Seeing her, and then having crazy havn't-seen-each-other-in-6-weeks-sex.

I'm not playing a card, that's just the way it is - the Daily Mail (or whatever you read) would never get much sympathy from a "Free Xinjiang" campaign. And of course you are meant to read about the different areas, otherwise you are doing exactly what I said - blindly supporting whatever is the most fashionable cause. It's not like Xinjiang is a tiny little place, its the biggest province in China.

Don't patronise me.

So I should read about the history/politics every region in every country, come to a conclusion and publicise my views on a forum more interested in javelin tha human rights?

"blindly supporting whatever is the most fashionable cause." - Right, so balck rights movement in the 60's was just a fad, and supporting the freedom of India from the empire was just "all the rage"? You sound like a music snob saying "don't listen to so and so because it's too mainstream." It's really quite sad from where I'm sat.


I didn't realise you were old enough to have campaigned for black rights in the 60s. And of course you should read about the history and politics of the country, otherwise how do you know you are campaigning for the right side? "Free Tibet" protesters just piss me off, maybe you are different but 99% of them that I have spoke to know absolutely nothing about it. They are just people that want something to feel strongly about, save the wales, save the rainforest, free tibet etc.. just pick one, it doesn't matter, they all sound great;.. "oh yeah I was just off campaigning for xxxxx, haha, yeah I know we just gotta do something you know".

I'm going to be an awkward ######, and say I won't watch the 2008 olympic games until China's attitude towards Tibet and Tibetan supporters changes.

Call me whatever, but f*ck you, 'tis something I believe in.


Ah I see, you are one of those people that just support whatever the media is supporting. Actually the Xinjiang reigon of China is far more culturally repressed than Tibet. However it doesn't get as much media coverage because the people are Muslim and look more Arabic in appearance, and so don't hold the same kind of public sympathy as the Tibetans.

Oh, that's right. I'm meant to read about every region of every country and rank them in order of most oppressed, the top 50 this summer will gain support.

To be honest, I'm just another indoctrinated fool who follows whatever Channel 5 news says 'coz Natasha Kaplinsky is hot. I've never been on marches, supported Amnesty International and lobbied against violation of human rights or anything.

P.S. I don't agree with you playing that "Arabic" card as you did.
