Rosindell Calls Chinese Government Actions "Shameful" and an "Outrage"

Romford MP Andrew Rosindell has "demanded" that the Chinese ambassador to the UK be summoned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to explain the Chinese decision to refuse visa entry to members of the Foreign Affairs Committee seeking  an "inquiry" visit to Hong Kong.

Speaking in Parliament Mr Rosindell said  "The shameful action by the Government of the People’s Republic of China to deny the Select Committee the ability to visit Hong Kong in order to conduct our legitimate business is a demonstration to the entire world that China has little respect for freedom, free speech and democracy. It is a sad state of affairs, which will have grave implications for British-Chinese relations for a long time to come." ....

The new Foreign Affairs Committee  ?
"It is nothing short of an outrage that the Foreign Affairs Committee of this democratic House of Commons, the mother of Parliaments, should be treated in such a way by an undemocratic Chinese Government. I am gravely concerned about the aggressive and confrontational position that China has taken on a matter of such importance. In the 21st century, there is no place for such an attitude. It is an unjustified attack not only on elected British parliamentarians but on transparency and on democracy itself." .....

"The British Government must show no hesitation in demanding an immediate response. I ask the Minister whether he will insist that the Chinese ambassador be called to the Foreign Office to explain his Government’s actions. I certainly hope that he will." ....

"Britain cannot and will not be bullied. If China is not prepared to honour the spirit of the 1984 joint declaration, Britain will have no choice but to conclude that the hand of friendship and trust that Margaret Thatcher held out to China 30 years ago has been betrayed."

The Havering Witness thinks that Mr Andrew Rosindell's time would be better spent in explaining events at Havering College of Further Education in the 1980s (please see our October 2012 article) AND the formulation of both the BBC TV Programme "Are You Being Served ?"  and "The Simpson Show" shown on Channel 4.  The constant attempt by Mr Rosindell to make himself too important to scrutinise by using the platform of the Foreign Affairs Committee and his many overseas working groups will not work.

Mr Rosindell !! Stop talking about far-away places, servicemen and flags and simply answer the allegations of corruption in the Romford, Hornchurch and Upminster Conservative Parties in the alleged attempt to close Havering College of Further and Higher Education in the 1980s.  The allegation is that the college was the target of orchestrated criminality assisted by local senior police officers in regular communication with the Conservative Party.

Mr Rosindell, can we at last have a public statement from you about these persistent allegations in your home town ? Clean you own door step first me old China !
