Just heard on the radio that the Chinese Olympic Committee are insisting that it goes through Tibet and anybody impeding it's progress will be severely punished.

I'm speechless.

Ivy's Avatar Money money money dear WW that's all that counts.Ethics? what's that? Nobody wants to offend the Chinese because they are scared of sanctions and where do we all export our products to? Why did the comitee have to gve the games to China and not care if the terms and conditions under which China was assigned the games are at least met? O don#t start me on that... came here for a break
@ zoe : couldn't have put it any nicer myselfSmile

It is hard to believe, when you hear things like this, that we all live in the same century.
