Sixty Minutes from now, the Chinese government will kill a mentally ill British citizen.
Wars have been started over less. Little has been heard from the British government and what they have done to persuade China to show restraint. All we have had is a junior Foreign Office Minister urging the Chinese to desist. I am sorry, but Ivan Lewis is not a name to strike fear into the hearts of the Chinese government.
Let's hope that even at this late stage, wise counsel prevails.
