    Interesting. I wasn't aware of this and haven't had much time to read up on it now but from a quick google it sounds like a pretty messy situation.

    Sadly, us Europeans don't have a great history...

    Yeah, their history with Algeria is pretty shameful. If you want to look at their colonial history it's all pretty bad but I'm British so this is definitely the pot calling the kettle black.:eek:

    Well, I can arrange pick up but would need a discount, so a kid rather than a goat. I'm thinking my next door neighbour's kid. His name's Ben.

    Turn that argument around and you have an equally (in)valid argument that would conclude that Uyghur's are being ethnically cleansed. It would have exactly the same amount (or lack of) evidence that...
