Personally, I could not see one mention of George Osborne. What about you?
Has George Osborne’s visit been ignored, or indeed perhaps snubbed because of David Cameron‘s foreign policy blunders?
This is all in stark contrast to the hype in the UK media which is reporting that Osborne has been enormously successful and will leave bearing gifts. This is evidenced when I ran a search on “Osborne in China” on Storify this morning. See:
Of course, shrewd and politically savvy leaders, like Angela Merkel have already visited China and taken the cream.
Following yesterday Storify news release by the UK HM Treasury, I am beginning to smell a whitewash campaign to delude the UK public ahead of the next election. Let me ask an open question:
Is there more spin-doctoring of the UK news under Cameron than Blair and Brown?
