Sod off Swampy

Chinese sheep are trembling in fear. Under pressure from the French government Jose Bové’s expulsion from Hong King has been reversed. Look out, HK, Swampy McSheep-boy is coming to town – and he’s one wild and crazy guy. What the Chinese should REALLY do is march him to the border with North Korea so he can be with his buddies:
«HONG KONG bowed to pressure from the French Government yesterday and lifted an expulsion order on Jose Bové.

Christine Lagarde, the French Trade Minister, asked the authorities to let M Bové into the territory after he performed a characteristically showy stunt, going on to France Inter radio live from a detention centre at the Hong Kong airport.

“Upon my arrival in Hong Kong they seized my passport and took me to a detention centre,” M Bové said.

Mme Lagarde asked the French consul-general in Hong Kong to make contact with the local authorities while her staff sought a promise from M Bové that he would behave during the summit.»
That puts the nanny state in a whole new light, doesn’t it?
«M Bové, 53, who casts himself as a martyr to capitalist oppression, is awaiting an appeal against a three-month prison sentence for destroying fields of experimental genetically modified crops.

As a known troublemaker with a criminal record, he has been barred from visiting summits in the United States and Canada in the past.»
