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.

I'm shocked, shocked, I tell you, to hear that Celtic fans don't have a fondness for the monarchy.

Well, not that shocked.

Piano player asked to stop playing piano because Chinese tourists don't want to be filmed.

The Chinese were making their own film and did not want to be broadcast on this guy's footage.

If that video stays live, the Piano player will get around 5,000 pounds in advertising income per million views.

They're not Chinese tourists (nor are they hibese tourists either, for that matter).
