Beijing Olympics

Asked what the Prime Minister thought of the decision made by Prince Charles not to attend the Beijing Olympics, the PMS said that the Prime Minister thought it was a matter for Prince Charles. Asked if he empathised with those who wished to boycott the event, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister thought that one of the virtues of living in a free society was that people were able to express views of that kind.

Asked if the Prime Minister thought it was a shame that Chinese and Tibetans didn’t share the same right, the PMS said that the British Government position in relation to Tibet was well established and unchanged.
