The Prince - China Style

You know, I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that if a senior member of the Chinese government is about to go on an series of official visits, then a few months before there's a programme of locking up a few dissidents. Once the tour starts the dissidents are released at strategic intervals so as to deflect criticism of the regime. Or is that too Machiavellian?

  1. Quickly scanning the title and first few lines I thought you were going to suggest avoiding diplomatic gaffs bylocking up the Duke of Edinburgh for the duration of the visit.
