Now that the Middle Empire has the power to have feelings beware not to hurt them.

The writers presenting the French Presidents’ visit in China try to explain the favor that Mr. F.Holland is having in contrast to Mr. Cameron and generally British officials. Dalai Lama is in the center of the issue here and China is showing that it can react sharply to any country being lenient to its enemy by imposing a deep-freeze in diplomatic relations. That has not affected gravely the current trade relation. Still there are so many benefits an official visit at top level can reap that the exclusion from it is something that from now on no country would like to experience and to be, even for a short term, in the position that the U.K. is now in its relation to China.
