    "Those refused access to Xi’s statement to the media include the BBC, the Financial Times, the Economist, the New York Times and the Guardian. Chinese officials offered no formal explanation for the decision.

    The Daily Telegraph, which regularly publishes Communist party propaganda in the UK as part of a reported £800,000 annual contractwith Beijing’s China Daily, is understood to have been granted an invitation to Xi’s event."

    Amazing really.

    As is oft with such matters here is the obligatory Animal Farm reference.

    "The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."

    A right wing paper working with the communist party of china. Right wing anti-communists often forget they are equal to the the pigs in Animal Farm.

    I wouldn't be surprised. Those of a conservative disposition will happily put aside their purported values when someone waves some cash under their noses.

    See Michael Fallon's recent claim that criticising the authoritarian terrorist funding Saudi Arabia is not helpful for UK arm sales as another example.
