I was reminded of the Sex Pistols’ “Holidays in the Sun” when I heard via Labour Home  that Blue Peter is offering a trip to the Olympics in China as a competition prize. The main hook of the song, you may remembe , went “a cheap holiday in other people’s misery”. In the meantime former presenter Konnie Huq has courageously voiced her opposition to the treatment of Tibetan pro-democracy protestors by the Chinese regime. The story has been all over the place including CommentisFree but my favourite treatment of it was this version here in the Calcutta Telegraph.
