better get used to it....
What's the saying.."who pays the piper, calls the tune"? Increasingly, we're going to see China use economic muscle to influence Western governments.
"'horrible Chinese thugs' who barged their way through London
Lord Coe last night condemned the army of Chinese "thugs" who accompanied the Olympic torch relay through London.
The head of London's 2012 Games described as "horrible" the burly henchmen who barged their way through the capital, shoving the public and even police out of the way.
His trenchant remarks followed those of former Blue Peter presenter and torchbearer Konnie Huq, who revealed the Chinese minders barked orders at her and pushed her arm up to hold the flame higher.
Sunday's scenes, which were repeated in France yesterday, brought accusations that Britain had imported Chinese police state tactics to control the supposedly showcase relay."
