So those poor Chinese government officials feel picked-on by the Dalai Lama. Well isn’t that a shame. As the Olympic Flame arrives in China, let us remember the protests that accompanied it. Indeed, let us rename the flame.
It has many visits to make yet before the Olympics proper, so let’s call it the Tibetan Flame this Olympiad. Indeed, seeing China is certain Tibet is part of their country, then a little bit of the Olympics are Tibetan.
So I look forward to the Tibetan Olympics. Indeed, let us all hope that throughout the flame’s journey, protests about Tibet make sure that, apart from the athletes, the other thing we remember is Tibet.
Good luck to all the athletes, too. And I look forward to them declaring they do what they do for Tibet as well.
