Not for all the guns 'n' shit in China...

Huh. I find this very disappointing and rather disturbing. EU dealings with China on the defence front have been pretty alarming (and wildly, wildly hypocritical) recently, especially in the field of hi-tech communications and space technology with potential defence implications and I had hoped to see the British government hold its nerve over this. Even if the Americans have acted like a complete bunch of ungreatful so-and-sos, this is a pretty dodgy way of going about sticking a finger up at them.

And don't even get me started on the abomination that was the French fleet swanning around with the PLAN during the Taiwanese elections.

Fits my three rules:

1. It's always about the money.

2. Everyone is a whore (especially defense companies).

3. Better looking people (countries in this case) get more.

Why shouldn't the Brits sell arms to China? The American businesses swarming over that country have gotten enough riches out of that Communist country. But that's Bush's plan to "advance freedom" in countries that have no democracies - fill them full of KFC and McDonald's outlets.
