Well, Well i can recall Gordon Brown (Then Prime minster) getting on a plane to China to "offer" them the chance to recycle their $ though London......however he made it plain that China would NEVER be allowed to buy anything "Strat-tree-ic"..........he got to China to a VERY low key welcome, didn't get to meet their prez only a Prime Minster (they got more than one).........they read his statment.....& just laughed at him..
