Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
LEO McKINSTRY: Sorry not to join the liberal wailing: heroin traffickers deserve to die | Mail Online

This morning, barring an unlikely last-minute reprieve, convicted drug smuggler Akmal Shaikh was executed by firing squad, having been found guilty of trying to bring 4kg of heroin into China.

His case has prompted outrage in this country from politicians and from the trendy metropolitan elite, for whom drug use is a fashionable habit rather than serious criminal offence.

Yet for all this orchestrated wailing, is it not possible that China is right to put Shaikh to death?

With a set of more disgusting comments.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

"Is it because I is black?" to quote someone (sbc I think).   that is, if the person in question were a Mr John Higgenbotham would the daily mail have a different attitude, you think?
