Gordon Brown today led condemnation of China for executing a mentally ill, (?), British man who had been convicted of drug smuggling.
Akmal Shaikh, 53, was put to death by lethal injection just after 4am at Xishan detention centre in the western Urumqi province. The father-of-five was buried immediately. He was the first European citizen to be put to death in China for 50 years.
In a statement shortly after Mr Shaikh's death, the Prime Minister said he condemned the execution 'in the strongest terms'. He said he was 'appalled and disappointed' that persistent requests for clemency have not been granted.
Fu Ying, the Chinese Ambassador to London, was summoned to the Foreign Office this afternoon to explain her country's actions. I hope she told them in no uncertain terms, to FUCK OFF AND STOP POKING THEIR NOSES IN CHINESE DOMESTIC AFFAIRS.
When Britain starts to lock up PISSHEADS LIKE PETE DOHERTY AND KATE MOSS to name but two instead of making them CELEBRITIES then we have the right to interfere in other country's' affairs. In CHINA if you are caught carrying more than 50 grammes of HEROIN then you are executed. No clemency, no MENTAL HEALTH INVESTIGATION, that's it. And guess what, they don't have a DRUGS PROBLEM!
