George Osborne praises China for not focussing on Tory human rights abuses


George Osborne China visit

George Osborne has praised the Chinese administration for focussing on business rather than years of human rights abuses carried out by the Tories against the British public.

The Chancellor expressed his gratitude that Chinese President, Hu Jintao, refused to broach topics such as the slashing of disability allowance or detention without trial, in favour of discussions on boosting trade.

Osborne told the travelling press pack, “It was with great relief that the Chinese choose to follow a brand of diplomatic etiquette designed to avert confrontation by failing to raise their concerns with Conservative policy in the UK.”

“Certainly any talk of the Tory party intention to withdraw entirely from the European Court of Human Rights, or failing to take their share of war-torn refugees, would have been as ghastly as a British MP expressing concern at the number of executions in China.”

“Never mind referencing the pushing of those under the age of 21 towards homelessness by preventing them from claiming housing benefit.”

“No, no, no – that would not do at all.”

He continued, “It was clearly far more important to prioritise the items that matter only to the richest 0.1% of the population – such as investing 20bn in a High speed rail link that nobody wants.”

Human Rights activist, Simon Williams, criticised the Chinese for failing to tackle Osborne for his neglect of the poor.

“Sure, the Chinese execute thousands, but that’s a quick win in comparison to the slow and painful death Osborne is forcing on the elderly, the disabled and the unemployed.”

“Makes the electric chair sound quite civilised.”
