Fucking vile. That's very depressing news.
If anyone wants to argue China could end capital punishment I'll agree with them but I can't agree with anyone who thinks he should have been made an exception to the law.
Yes he's mentally ill but, as you say, he's not going to be by any means the first mentally ill person to be executed in China this year and I'm pretty sure he doesn't have a mental ilness that overrides his moral judgement so I don't see any reason to argue for him not to receive the same treatment as any other drug smuggler in China, even if I don't agree with what that treatment is.
towards their own people leak out, but we're up in arms over this? Where's your sense of cultural relativism when it's a Brit in the firing line?
FYI, if you have to be disgusted about something, be disgusted about the millions of baby girls the heathen Chinee toss away like so much soiled underwear every year because of their daft beliefs about "manliness" and whatnot. Be disgusted at how dissenters are dealt with. Be disgusted at how they effectively put billions to death in Copenhagen t'other week. But for God's sake, get some perspective.
psychopaths do for fun, you atrocious cunt.
Die now, you detestable shit.
Especially since your attempt to paint moi as holier than thou ended up making yourself look holier than thou. The point is that there are far more things to find objectionable about China than this one incident. So, again, get a little perspective.
They're like the indie rock Chinese, but with worse food and better porn.
japanese food is much better than chinese food.
Japanese food is horrific, people only pretend to like it so that they're rake thin pasty faced Wire magazine reading friends will think they're all cosmopolitan and invite them round to play the soggy rice cake game whilst listening to Efterklang.
not sushi, that shit can do one, but grilled stuff on sticks and battered stuff. it's good.
it really is. i suspect 'alex in ciderland' has no fucking clue what he's talking about and has confused me for someone who is "in to japan". i don't like anime or japanese chicks, i just like delicious grilled meat and fish.
i mean, i don't fancy every single japanese bird like some guys do, but they're alright i suppose.
But not a patch on chicken katsu curry
I love misato on wardour street - top japanese but always a big queue to get in
alex in ciderland will follow you round the board making snide remarks about you because you like japanese food.
anyway yeah i enjoy a katsu curry too. never tried misato, but like you say about the queues, if there's that many people waiting to get in it must be good. will give it a go.
misato takes cash only, but it's cheap and the portions are HUGE.
Get a bento box for best value and go outside peak hours
I said it's 'very depressing' that he'd been executed. That's it. I wasn't forming a protest group at Trafalgar Square for twenty minutes then going home and eating a bowl of cornflakes with a cup of tea. Maybe even a bourbon biscuit too. Nah make that a custard cream.
given that 2 years of secret talks between governments didn't make any difference anyway, all those Facebook groups and people standing outside the embassy probably didn't either, except they were maybe final nail in this guy's coffin. more publicity, more of an embarrassing admission of error for the Chinese it would have been, and they don't like us Europeans critisising them for stuff they see we allow ourselves to do.
I liked the bit where a discussion of human rights abuses descended into arguing about whether Wire readers listen to Efterklang.
