Murder in China political protest? 

So Taishi explodes into the world headlines – something you would expect given the account in my previous post here about Community Politics in a Chinese village. May our thoughts be with the ordinary people doing extraordinary things..

The probable murder of Lu Banglie (see today’s Guardian, 10 Oct) raises many stakes, what price for example the relationship with the Rover plant at Longbridge, Birmingham? How much will our response in the UK to this violence be modulated by the growing economic power of China within Britain?
