A 6 year old girl, Florence Widdicombe has been left distraught after purchasing a Christmas card with complaints found inside from a Chinese prison (?) worker.

"We are foreign prisoners in Shanghai Qingpu Prison China. Forced to work against our will. Please help us and notify human rights organisation," the note in the Christmas card said.

Florences father felt shocked when interviewed on TV.

Poor girl. Florence has had her idea of Christmas shattered by criminals in China with low work output and performance issues.

This is the price of doing business in China: cheap goods at the expense of peoples' lives & freedoms.

China says 'not them'.

China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a press briefing last night the story was "just a drama choreographed by Mr Peter Humphrey"

And it is mostly a price that we have been quite happy to pay until now.
